I started taking up the guitar at the age of 10 years old. Everyone in my immediate family had played at some point, whether it was teenage/ early adult years to present day today. I had a cheap rip-off of a Fender Stratocaster; Made in Mexico. I took lessons for about 6 months and didn't make the progress I wanted so I started playing on my own. At age 13 I bought my second and one of my favorite guitars; a black Pre-Lawsuit Paul Reed Smith Singlecut. It became my motivation to become a better player. I immediately went from playing an hour a day from anywhere between 6 to 10 hours. Along the way I found the popular tabbing software Guitar Pro. I got a copy of GP5 and after 4 years of using it, I have become pretty comfortable with it; understanding musical dictation and tabbing out songs on my own, sometimes with the help of another persons tablature/ tab book to compare work. I am great with tabbing guitar and some bass (NOTHING ELSE), so I occasionly steal bass and drums from others to add to my tab. Recently one of my friends told me I should create an account on UG to share my tabs so I did. I don't have a wide variety of artists tabbed; SORRY IDGAF. All I know is that there are people who will enjoy what I have; they are fun to play and beneficial to creating better technique.
