All You Guitarists, this is probably one of the biggest questions anyone can ask a guitarist for,

Why do you play?

My answer for fun, and to prove everyone wrong.
no one ever credited me for being good at anything,
and i'm to show i'm good at something, and it's showing,
my uncle says if I can get a band together and with a couple more years practice, i could get a record deal.

but what's your reason

I never had any interest in guitar until about 3 years ago. I heard Dad playing some Pink Floyd and I was sold. Love it, Live it, Breath it, Dream it, and will never leave it.

I started cause I wanted to get girls and because I was the only guy in my family that couldn't and because I started playing guitar Hero

I play for a future worth living for. I don't have any friends, so I just pass the time by writing songs and playing guitar.

Ya I don't know why I started anymore. I keep playing though as a way to ease my mind, keep it off other things.

Because it's like crack... But that's the reason for the last few years.

I started because I heard what music could be, (Accepts Fast as a Shark) and I was disillusioned by all the crap that's been made since 1990. And then I started hearing even faster stuff and learning new things... And then it was like, :O I can play better then all these people who have deals (except of course those Vitrosos...) So basiclly, I'm trying to bring Speed Metal back to life, how ever, it's not going very well, I've only known 2 people, both over 500 miles from me, who like it... :/

I play just because I love music, and I think music is something that anyone can love and most people at least like. It's like another language where you have to try best to do justice to your feelings. Plus it feels good most of the time.

playing also helps relieve stress.

I actually wanted to play drums then I wanted to play my favorite songs. Then I learned about heavy metal and how its perfect for guitar. Then I bought a Strat and I was just fucking stoked at being able to play one chord. Other reasons include: Proving to my family I could, passing time, and GIRLS. A guitsr is just a chick magnet. I have talked to some girls that would otherwise never have noticed me. I also love music (especially classical) since I can remember.

Well,

I would have to say it's simply because I enjoy it. It's something that I LOVE to do. It's the only talent I have really, and I wanna go somewhere in life with it.

@BBT,
Doz is right, in fact I have a whole list of heavy stuff that I heard on that radio station. They aren't as heavy as some other stuff but they're pretty hardcore

I really liked the Red Hot Chili Peppers and Led Zeppelin since I was 8 or so, and at about 10 I realized why-the guitar playing. I decided I wanted to play songs like John Frusciante and Jimmy Page.

I started when I was 11 just to pee my parents off (they wanted me to play piano. Yuk!). It was the best bit of rebelliousness I ever experienced as I immediately fell in love with the instrument. It gave me everything a kid could want at that age, a challenge, a feeling of achievement every time I learned something new and, as I started to get older and more proficient, sex appeal!

I like Piano too. Never learned it but I think it does sound really good in some heavy metal. Crazy as it sounds..

yeah keys go perfectly in Melodic Death Metal like Children of Bodom and In Flames, I taught myself to play though I can play like Don't Stop Believing by Journey and the themes from Halloween and Nightmare Before Christmas and I can play one part of Nymphetamine Fix by Cradle of Filth so you know I dig keyboards

The trouble with pianos and parents is that they always want you to learn 'properly' and have 'real' training with expensive teachers. Two or three months in, you could be feeling sick to the back teeth with it but you feel awful about saying anything 'cause your folks have already spent a small fortune. To me that would have been the beginning of the end for my lifelong love of music!

Did you guys misunderstand me? When I spoke of my love for the instrument, I was talking guitar not piano!

yeah dude I mean most things are easy enough to convert but what is hard is trying to combine treble notes and bass notes I can play both parts seperately but when I try to play both at the same time I'm hooped

I like the Piano in If I Could Fly by Helloween. it's only like a little thing but it sounds good with the guitar in it.

I like Stryper's piano too

The only thing I can play on piano are a few simple songs (Jingle Bells, etc.) and the C Blues scale (which is actually really fun and easy to improvise on). I'm teaching myself more out of a lesson book though.

Not really.
I'm good enough with just one who I actually have feelings for and not a bunch that I don't even like

Guitar never got me anywhere to be sodding honest, I now play it because I dont want to quit it again, I stare at it wells playing and whisper my hate for it to it..yet I love playing it at the sametime.
Why I started? I don't know honestly it was so long ago I dunno why, I know why I quit after my first year: I had no support,no teachers, no friends that played,wasn't really into music like I am now.
I started playing ago because I got 'the itch' I guess.

Now stop all this silly talk about girls its making me feel left out =|
