Well, I own a guitar...but I suck at it better than I can play it.

I only know 3 chords, A, D, and G. I took lessons over the summer, but haven't done much with it since.

I wish I could play...

I like to think I can play my guitar. I can play a bit of 'Mothers of the Disappeared' and the intro-y bit to "Miracle Drug" and also the intro to "Plug In Baby" by Muse. (badly!) I just put it through the amp with lots of distortion, then it sounds good!
I am a frustrated musician see. I can't keep a beat and can't read music. The closest I ever came to being good at music was playing the recorder when I was about 7.

TOTALLY thought of posting "i know the H chord!" instead, but I wasn't sure if people would find it funny, so I posted something lame and boring...

next time I'll go with my instincts

I play guitar. The first U2 song I learned on guitar was SYCMIOYO.

I'm currently learning Save your scissors by City and Colour

I play very Ege-influenced guitar, but i've been told that i also have my own style. I'm good at playing anything by ear, and i can keep a beat, but i totally suck at playing a "proper" solo. My favorite U2 stuff to play is anything that has that chiming guitar sound. I still need a good delay unit so I can play Streets.

And that dang H-chord will be the life of me...

Another PLEBAn guy-guitarist here!

I've been playing for about 5 years and I'm in a band.
We have started to write some original songs but we don't have any place to rehearse yet...

Me (and my brother on the bass guitar) playing Streets:


I play many U2 songs, but not very much from pre-Joshua Tree, they are a lot harder than the rest of their songs I think.

My first song was "Kite" followed by "Walk On" and "Elevation".

Cool, Mucca!! Dallas Green solo! He has a great voice!


Oh, and on topic, I've had an acoustic for eons. Every few years, my rock star aspirations return, I play for a few days, realize how much I suck, then put it away. Rinse and repeat in two year cycles.

I can't read music for guitar. Even if I could, it wouldn't do much good to me. I don't really play other people's songs (besides U2)...I like to create my own songs. Of course it would be helpfull if i'd write them down, but I'd have to be able to read music to do that!

^What kind of guitar do you play? I play a black Acoustic/Electric Applause, way cheaper but slightly similar to what Edge played on Love + Peace. I play it through an amp w/ some vintage distortion and reverb...love that warm sound. Are you a younger fan, by any chance? It's cool to talk to other younger U2 fans.
