I believe it is polite to introduce yourself as a new member of this forum, so here I go.


My name is Nick, I have been playing guitar for some 15 years now. I own several guitars, and, obviously, several amps and effects. I also started playing bass some 5 years ago, with a Squier Jazz Bass.


I have been in several bands over the years, in many different genres. At the moment, I am mostly giving lessons while slowly working on my own material for a potential future band (I have a job that leaves me very little spare time).


A long time ago, in a previous life, my (not musically talented) ex-girlfriend got me hooked to Guitar Hero. In the past year or two, I have had little spare time between my job, girlfriend, and social responsibilities, so when I heard about Rocksmith I thought I had found a fun way to combine 2 hobbies - games and guitars.


I hope I will meet some fun people here, but if not, just knowing there are people still interested in guitar is already rewarding in itself! I wish everyone a lot of fun!

Hi Nick,


it sounds as if you know your way around a guitar, maybe you should join the championship.


I did this a couple of years ago and my playing has improved immensely, and the guys & Girls on that forum are great.

I figure I use this topic since I'm new as well. 


Just learning how to play guitar myself. I've been an avid piano player for few years. I am big on Rock music so I wanted to naturally transition from piano to guitar. 


Mind you my problem is I never learned how to read sheet music or understand musical theory. I played entirely by ear so I'll need to learn as a beginner. I'm also left handed who decided to just deal with learning how to play a right handed guitar so I have a few challenges to overcome.


I plan to take it slow using RockSmith as a teaching tool, going to try to dedicate myself to at least an hour a day.
