I know I have to in the minority here but the reality is that I can't play guitar.
It seems that I just don't have the talent no matter how much I practice.
I bought my first guitar when I was 12, I'm 48 now and in all honesty, I've barely improved over the years
I can play a couple of intros and sloppy pentatonic scale but not much more. And everything I play is without rhythm and with plenty of mistakes. And all this after a short 36 years.
Now if I'm being honest, I don't really play/practice as much as I should. I'll go at it pretty good for a couple of months then not pick up my guitar for many months (if not years).
But even when I'm playing a lot, my improvement is painfully slow. Then I get frustrated or just lose interest.
Sometimes I think I can spend my way into playing better so I'm not shy about throwing money at gear. Speaking of which, I have a brand new Custom 22 coming in from Brian's Guitars on Monday.
Yes, I paid full retail price for one of the finest guitars made when I have the ability that deserves a $99 Fender Squier
So I'm alone in this, right?
