A Space for Beginner Guitarists!
Hey everyone! One of my personal favorite things about 1RAD is the amount of first time players choosing to use this time and space to begin their journey into guitardom. I would love for She Shreds and 1RAD to help and serve you in as many ways as possible.
Let's use this space to introduce ourselves, and just ask questions + discuss how the process has been so far.
First of all I am so happy to have found this community.
For 2021 I bought myself a year long subscription to Fender Play. I bought myself an electric guitar a couple of years ago as a part of my middle age whatthef?ck and wish I had done it years earlier because I love it even though I still can not play a thing, and don’t even really have callouses yet.
Anyway, I struggle with anxiety and stuff plus I really don’t usually take selfies and post myself on social media so even the thought of posting one riff is rather daunting to me but I really hope I do. But until then I’m following #1rad as much as I can and I can’t comment on everything but thanks to everyone who has posted for sharing, this has brought me so much joy.
I just wanted to introduce myself. My name is Stephanie, I’m @harrow95 on Instagram. It’s been wonderful to meet you all!
Hello all! I’m Angie, I’m @radioactivequilts on IG. I picked up guitar a year ago. Before that I had about 11 year hiatus from music, but I’ve been playing music since 4th grade and I’m 40 now. I realized it had been too long and I had to pick music back up again. I am a trombone player, but a year ago I had surgery on my lip and it left my face numb in places, and the thought of never playing again scared the shit out of me and I knew I had to play something so I thought, well I’m alone doing this so why not guitar! I’ve been enjoying my journey so far. I ventured out and bought a mini midi controller with a drum pad to make my own beats. I’m tired of waiting for someone to come along with me on this journey so I wanted to be more independent. I also just started doing drag, so my drag king alt is so fun, but I am at some point going to incorporate guitar into my act. I’m looking for a electric guitarlele to shred on stage as a tiny Strat! I think it will be so fun! I have really enjoyed this month! I never knew there were so many of us out there, it makes me happy we exist and we are taking up space. I feel like my whole life until this point people have tried to gatekeep me from music, and now I just walk by those people and do my own thing. 😝
