I've never played any instruments in my life and at the age of 29 I'm interested in learning the electric bass guitar.
Will I be able to do this? Or do you have to have been playing an instrument since you were a child? Erm, that's it.
Oh, any similar experiences or useful resources would be good to hear about. Ta.

Does anyone know or can anyone point me to guitar tabs or chords to XTC's song "Dying" off the Skylarking CD? I'm a beginner but I'm determined to learn this song, and I can't find anything online.

the end of the Bob the Builder theme song has that heavy guitar riff "wind down" which reminds me of some tv show theme (like the drew cary show or WKRP) where some guy shouts: "I love you NEW YORK -or maybe detroit--what is that show?

What is a very high quality, low wattage guitar amplifier that will not overpower a small room, but has enough punch to pick up some nuanced playing, and maybe one or two on-board effects? [more inside]

I'm looking for recommendations for jazz albums with a lineup similar to the one on Sonny Rollins's classic album The Bridge
, which has tenor sax + guitar + bass + drums and that's it. (YouTube example
.) I love how Jim Hall's guitar takes on the usual role of the piano since it's the only instrument in the ensemble that can play whole chords. [more inside]

A few years ago, I remember grooving on a funky version of Auld Lang Syne. It was by a male artist, vocals plus either solo guitar or guitar driven. It was in a folk-reggae style similar to I’m Yours by Jason Mraz
. Ring any bells?

I'm travelling by coach tomorrow morning and want to take my cheap electric guitar with me. Problem is, I meant to get a proper case for it at some point, but never got around to it. So what I have right now is the flimsy, badly fitting gig bag it came with. How can I make this a more sensible plan? [more inside]

I'v been playing guitar for a number of years, and in the last couple i've started learning classical pieces to push myself. Although i'm no john williams yet learning pieces such as canarios
has really improved my playing. So do any of you out there have a piece or pieces that you loved learning or that took your playing to a new level? I'm mostly looking for classical pieces but things along the lines of bert janch would also be appreciated. No shredding please.

I am trying to buy my boyfriend an amp pedal for Christmas but I am clueless about such things. I am going on two google searches he left open on the browser: "Best Fuzz Pedal for Valco Amp" and "Lovepedal Super 6." He has a Gretch amp and a Fender Princeton Reverb II (tube). He has discussed wanting an sound that sounds "turned up" when it's not. Also, a late sixties sound has been mentioned. He's not expecting me to buy one so he isn't being specific.
So, any ideas about pedals I could buy? I know I just need to save the receipt so he can return it for what he wants but I really want to try and nail it. Apologies in advance if the previous paragraph makes no sense, this is all Greek to me.

I bought a no name acoustic guitar a couple years ago on a whim. I've since taken lessons and been given a nicer Ibanez acoustic and a Fender Squire. I'm ready to make a more serious guitar investment, but I have no idea what I'm looking for or how to shop for a good guitar. [more inside]

Searching for the name of an old guitar distortion/overdrive pedal.
* distortion or overdrive
* had a feature that allowed holding for "sustain"
* used by my old hippy guitar teacher in 1992
* I was told it was difficult to find in 1992
I liked this pedal because I could hold my foot on the pedal and it would feedback. You would press once to turn it on, hold to get sustain, press to turn off. Not sure if it was custom or what.
I was too young at the time to note the brand.
