    Anyone who plays, what do you think? When you have no idea how to, how long did it take you to be semi decent? Rate it from a difficulty from 1-10. I'm bored, I was thinking maybe to try a new hobby. You know what they say about idle hands and all.




    Lots of input appreciated!!

    If you have "the feel", you will become semi-decent in about, let's say, 10 minutes.

    Ask Jonno.

    To become proficient, all it takes is practice. To become a good guitarist, that takes experience (and practice). If you want to just strum a few songs, easy as pie but if you start getting into solos and 24 fret pentatonic runs its going to take a fair bit of work.

    Thanks very much

    @ckuk.......you not like me no more?

    @Slim......It depends how much you want it, like RGX said
    NOT being big headed but when I was in my band my rhythm guitarist had been playing for 20 years and could&#39;nt play lead for shit, I had been playing 4 years and played all the lead work very well so I was told
    I play for fun, when I want to, I guess it took me about 18 months to get from knowing nothing, teaching myself 100% to playing Sweet child and Another Brick etc fairly well

    If you want it, you have to work at it, everyone was crap at some point
    Even GS Altho he seems to be the Hendrix of the board (having said that I&#39;ve never heard him play)

    Good luck
