Medyo active nga noon yung thread. Si Telekikay, aside from being one of the oldies here in GT, is aso one of the very active GTalker sa thread na iyun.

People did talk about playing, guitars, songs, chords, tablatures, it was a very active thread.

I started playing in 1993 when i was still in Grade 7. Then pabanda banda noong high school. either togs sa school or sa bahay ng friends. nothing more. no playing in clubs. However i did play for the my school's group called Music Crew.

I stopped playing in June 1998 when I left for the university and got bitten by the Martial Arts bug. This was also the time when i got heavily into sports (running, gym, boxing, dancing etc) and got into Yoga and Meditation.

I tried my best to play during weekends but I was often either too busy training or recuperating (sleeping).

Then in 2004 i tried go at it again having had my own money from what i was able to save since i graduated, i tried to buy gears like effects pedals etc. But then i got accepted by a certain Arnis master and i had to train again and leave the guitar. at the same time i also was able to work under a Spiritual guru (not an easy position to get) and had to go full time as well.

kaya yung Stratocaster ko at yung Les Paul na naiwan sa ilalim ng kama, eh inamag ng husto when i got to finally open them noong late 2006. the wirings were pretty much F word up. Tarnished frets and really moldy fret board. I sent them to Arie. and got a text message later saying, "hindi mo ata ginagamit gitara mo!!". Well, this was the second time. one was in 2004.

Since 2006, i've been a "weekend warrior". I play lang at home. or tuwing may libreng gabi. I've been buying gears din since my ears have matured and medyo alam ko na din ano ang gusto ko (Blues, Blues/Rock, Blues/Jazz, but not pure jazz.)

eto ang pinag uusapan namin ni Telekikay sa mga PMs ---Gears. Guitars, Effects Pedals, Modifications, amplifiers.

Since im more into Rock and Blues, my preference is geared towards the classic gears of the 50s, 60s...

as for Telekikay, i think it would be best if he'd be the one to introduce himself.  :P

^wow! I can see that you really like music and guitars, bro. When I was in HS I was dreaming of having different guitars, pedals, gears but nawala din dahil "busy".. I just hope I can go back and play regularly kahit sa bahay lang so di rin "mangalawang" yung pag play ko ng guitar ;D acoustic lang ako madalas. I am into country, country pop.. nagugustuhan ko din blue/jazz simula nung naexpose ako sa genre because of my friends.. How i wish i could play like jazz artists haha! I love watching videos of jazz artists playing guitars :)

Nako sis,

when i was in HS, i would often be teased pag dating sa guitar pedals etc. i had no pedals. just an electric guitar and amp.

Hindi naman sa nag pendulum effect ako, but when i got back into it, i saw the value of pedals, napa appreciate ako. and naturally went to that direction (pedals) kaya nag spend din ako. now i have about 3 cases of pedals.  hehe yung mga nang aasar noon. wala na ngayon. hehe

as of now, wala pa din tatalo sa audio quality ng magandang analog pedal unless high end rackmount digital effects ang gamit. maaring maglaban.

nahilig ako sa blues/jass dahil kay Gregor Hilden. check out the songs, Blue Clouds and OD Special Blues sa youtube.

i'm not much into acoustic.

FOURever, akthung

hahaha huwag nyo na itanong kelan ako nag umpisa mag gitara.  ako naman sa gears, depends on the budget and practicality.  who wouldn't want a real 59 or a 54 strat diba or bowteek guitars? i try to get the best possible option within my budget.  wala akong formal musical training so nag start ako sa kaibigan, sa inuman and eventually guitar tabs.  wala naman youtube noon lolz!!! (paksyet na youtube yan, halos lahat ng info andun na).  kaya noon panahon ko, kapag nakapa mo yun riff, solo, lick, ang angas mo na noon sa tambayan lolz! wala akong specific genre though leaning towards rock ako pero nakikinig din ako ng ibang genre pwera K POP. 

bago nag reformat GT, madami din sumali sa guitar thread. siguro aim lang natin ngayon (sa thread) is to share one's knowledge about anything guitar (w/o) dissing each other lolz!

si akthung ang go to person dito when it comes to vintage gears.  if you want a direct approach i.e. guitar to amp...siya yun hehe

"Huwag mo nang itanong sa akin, 'di ko rin naman sasabihin..."

Heheh

Naabutan ko naman yung old days. Siguro nasa transition stage ako noon.

Song Hits, Tabs, magazines, stop and shop, friends, instructional cassette tapes and VHS. hehe the best way talaga was to study in a school or by an accomplished teacher

it was a good thing that i studied classical guitar for one summer. doon ako natuto mag note reading. kaya noon nakakita ako ng tabs, naitutugtog ko kahit hindi ko alam yung kanta. unlike now may powertab etc na you can play and hear.

ngayon kung ano ano na, youtube, may free DVDs. maiiksi na yung courses dahil naisasak sak sa dvd (metal method, perfect pitch).

Telekikay, i honestly don't know if this thread will live long.

btw, my dad passed by Pinas and he brought my pedals home. but it would be months before i get to see them.

Naabutan ko pa yung song hits ;D i really wish na makakuha ako ng enough time para makapag enroll sa formal guitar lessons, kasi sayang din, napag iiwanan na ako and my friends, magagaling na sila at nakakabili na for their guitars.. Pansin ko kasi sa sarili ko, mas improving ako kapag may pressure. Pero kung spare time lang, mabagal progress ko. Ang arte lang haha!

 I hope may mga sumali pa sa thread na to. I'm sure madaming mahihilig din sa gitara dito.
