finally released my first CD.  All originals.  Six have been on the radio, two on the European charts (go figure.  Those European love Country Music).

See it here: http://barrymoffitt.bandcamp.com/

Always around.

And I get rounder with age.

Anyone still around?

Just found this page! I'm 20, 21 in January, and I've been playing guitar since I was probably about 14 or 15. I play both electric and acoustic. I also like playing bass and I'm trying to learn drums and piano when I can. I tend to play rock/metal music but I really enjoy many styles and attempt to play whatever I can. I also attempt to sing but I'm no where near comfortable with it. My vocal is around bass/baritone range. I feel comfortable singing Faith No more stuff if that helps paint the picture. 

Glad I found a group of fellow musicians!

I remember some of the "Rock School" stuff was pretty good for learning scales and licks back in the day.  Don't know if that stuff is still around.

Anyone have any suggestions on sources for self-learning guitar scales and a small amount of music theory?

Also I wanna be able to hear a song and play it and just jam along with other musicians.

Well I wanna play the blues, jazz, funk. Got the 12bar blues down I guess. Know how to play a couple songs and licks, and pentatonics, but don't know how to move on.

Cool group - I've played bass in Brooklyn, New York for 25 years - whoa, that sounds like I'm old.  I was recorded on Joe Whyte's "Heavyweight" album back in 1999 or thereabout.

Tim -

 

Yes. A good teacher will definitely get you moving. But judging by your comment, I'm wondering what your goals are? What do you want to do with the guitar? A teacher will help you do that..., once you figure it out.

 

But practice--deliberate daily practice--is part of the equation.
