Stole that title from LMP, who calls his girlfriend his "lady friend."

I play guitar AND song write, so it's frustrating to sit here with nothing to do, especially while a couple of guys I know are in a band.

Playing a live show is one of my dreams.

See, I just wish I could play guitar.

A lot.

I think you will get to be in a band one day. At worst I'm sure in college you'll find equally talented and interested people.

I wish I could play guitar too. I mean, I play, but it's not like I actually know what I'm doing.

In all honesty, I think if I learn scales and I improve my form, I'll be decent.

Do you have much of a singing voice or growl?

I'd love to play piano but it is far too complex for me.

I wish I could play piano just to be a badass like Edge, playing guitar and piano simultaneously.

My black metal rasp isn't too bad, actually.

Liam and I have spoken of recording a parody black metal album. He'd do guitars while I'd do vocals and "drums" (I'll whack drumsticks on books for that ultra-thin, insubstantial sound). We'll credit somebody as playing bass but not include anything.

I used to play, but I've pretty much forgotten everything now. And I don't know anybody who'd want to form a band, nor am I outgoing enough to take the initiative myself.

The question really is, how many U2 songs could you play?

P.S.: I'm about to hit 15,000 posts.

That officially makes me a blue crack addict, so they say.

Not just any mustache, Daniel Day-Lewis' mustache.

I can remember doing 11 O'clock Tick Tock, An Cat Dubh/Into The Heart, I Will Follow, and New Year's Day. I had a shot at a good number of others from the early days too.

My two favorites to play are The Electric Co. and Until the End of the World. Especially the latter.
