This should be fun!
This quiz is provided by Acoustic Guitar Magazine and takes 2 minutes at most. See what kid of guitar player you are and share it with the group .., :-)
PS It turns out that I'm a cross between a "WOODSHEDDER" and a "JAMMER" ... according to the quiz, I'm in it for the love of playing music. I need a stage like an Eskimo needs more ice. My most important critic is myself. Music is my escape, and I'm at my most content locked away in that world where me and my guitar are the only two things that exist ... but, I also feel that music was meant to be played with friends. In my opinion, a perfect evening is one spent playing songs – old favorites and new ones still to be learned by heart – as part of a group. I like to keep it casual, and most important of all, I like it to be fun.
(This is a fairly good assessment of me.)
So, what does the quiz say about you? Is it accurate??
PPS: Here is the link to ALL THE POSSIBLE TYPES
Ray ... I love them. The inspire participation which is what the site is all about. We have 2012 members now, but only maybe 40 or so actually contribute regularly. Would be great to build that up. :-)
Oh so sad -- I am a cross between a woodchuck and a jackrabbit. So I am neither fish nor fowl. I want to be slowhand but I must be just slow.
I think I'm a Woodshedder and I know I'm a fumble-fingered Newbie, but my results say I'm a Sideman/Scholar. Hmmmm ...
But it looks like almost everyone's a tie of some sort.
I'm a mentor and a scholar - tied
and like Wayne said--A poor one
Hey Wayne, is that poor of pocket or lacking in skills?
Woodshedder/Sideman interesting little quiz.
I was a JAMMER - "Music was meant to be played with friends. In your opinion, a perfect evening is one spent playing songs – old favorites and new ones still to be learned by heart – as part of a group. You like to keep it casual, and most important of all, you like it to be fun." and
MENTOR - "You’re a giver. One of the best things about being a musician is being able to share your talent and knowledge with others. From teaching someone else a few chords or a whole song, to recommending a magazine for some extra-curricular reading, your goal is to give others the tools they need to appreciate guitar as much as you do."
Probably a not far off description but mostly a "wanna be ...". That was interesting. Thanks
I turned out to be a woodshedder and jammer also. I guess I knew that already.... I didn't buy the guitar with the plug in it.....
Mine's a tie between "frontman" and "scholar." I'd say that's a pretty fair assessment, although I'm not sure about the frontman. However, performing does become quite addicting...
You'd make a fine frontman and you're definitely a scholar. Are you enjoying the Bose PA as much as you thought you would??
Definitely loving the Bose PA, although haven't been able to use it in a live setting yet. We keep getting rained out! It sounds really good during rehearsals, though...MUCH better than my acoustic amp!
Know what yo umean re: the weather. My family had a long weekend reunion in the mountains where my brothers and I were to play each afternoon and we never did get a full performance in because of the passing thunderstorms. BTW, Where was the outdoor "song writers co-op" in your video clip on your new page? Looks like some farm setting. Is it nearby??
That was at the "Festival for the Eno" on Wed., July 4 held at the Eno River State Park in Durham. Great experience but it was sweltering that day!
Speaking of which, now that you're a bona fide songwriter, you should join the co-op!
