Thursday, March 22 2007 @ 09:03 AM CDT

Alright cats I thought I'd bust out some old pics of me jammin geetar! If you have any old shots of yourself playing an instrument please feel free to share. I had a little more hair back then.

WHOA--You look totally devoted to the craft at age 16, Bizarre...wish I could say the same. I never really got serious about guitar playin' till I was in my 30's! I did, however, maintain my long locks until just about a month ago!!

This was me at the age of 16. One of my favorite places to play my DiGiorgio was on our front porch at home in Brazil.

[QUOTE BY= bug67] I am sooooo embarrassed to post this. Oops! I never was one of the cool kids but, boy, I sure thought I was. Thank goodness my fashion sense has matured. Tube socks and cut-offs? Eek!

I was 15 years old living in England. I had just started playing guitar.

Dude that is an awesome pic! Priceless! Hey we all had our time when we wern't looking so cool! Glad you posted. Your not still wearing the tube socks and the short shorts are you? LOL

Yeah I got my first guitar at 12 and started playing. The first guitar I had was a RED HARMONY FLYING V! It looked cool but wouldn't stay in tune for shit so I smashed it. I also had a 15 watt Gorilla amp with a bad cord.

I used to spend my life in that chair in my bedroom playing geetar. 8 hours day. I was kind of a recluse. Then I started teaching lessons at 16. Man I am glad now that I spent all of that time. It gives me a way to express myself and it is something I will have for life. Music is a beautiful thing!

Me on the drums 1977
My first instrument was my Uncle's drums... A pearl set. This pic was taken in 1977 and I was 15 at the time. I pretty much sucked at playing them, but the discipline I gained helped me move on to playing guitar a year after this photo was taken.

...and yes I'm sitting on a pile of clothes.

One from the late 70s - after moving from Sydney, I joined a local band in the boondocks Smile


The beard was an essential fashion item back then!
