    When I started playin bass, two of my buddies started playing guitar. We wanted to be a "band" so we kept each other motivated to progress. I fact it seemed like every guy played guitar so there was always someone to talk to and that kept the motivation high. I've always been a tab guy but have since forgotten most of my theory from age 12. I liked tackling tough stuff early and tried to chip away bit by bit and eventually it came together. My first guitar was a crappy acoustic but it was the right way for me to start. Toughened my hands up and I had to focus in playing cleanly. I am at a point now where my technique is ok but I would like to take lessons for theory application as I can better appreciate it now. Before, I just wanted to jam with my buddies right away.
