Last few days been looking for a lectic guitar, was at a music store this afternoon and gonna get some lessons to speed my learning once I find a decent ax lol. I took guitar when I was a young fucker but at 10 you don't really have a flipping clue about rock/blues....your just to young and dumb to really appreciate how cool a guitar is. So after wanting to get back to trying to learn guitar for the last 20 years off and on, fuck it I am going to give it a shot.
So besides going out and getting a Gibson Les Paul Standard, what do you guys recomend as a good intermediate guitar? The shop I was in had some Hagstroms, been looking on kijiji for some gibbons or epitomes. There are some good deals but trying to find a nice set up that won't have to refinance the house lol.

Good for you Coop! Never too late to pick er again. I took Hawhinin guitar lessons for a couple yrs. (about 50 yrs. ago). Lost interest when I got to high school.Never quite got to the reading notes lessons. I still have my blue (Big Flake) electric lap steel and old matching little amp w/ tubes in my stored stuff. I never had the urge to pick it up again.Music just doesn't have the appeal that it had in my younger days.

Thought I would share a couple photos of my new to me Les Paul standard I got last week. It popped out at me at guitar works in Calgary last sunday and I couldn't leave without it lol.....been getting in my way of working on my shovel the last week, but its a steep learning curve and I really enjoy our time together lol.....

Ya she is a absolutely true Gibson Les Paul 2012 standard. I am saving my pennies to get a nice tube amp to go with it. For now I just picked up a dirt cheap fender amp it's one of those electronic jobbers with effects but good enough for a dirt lump twanger for now. Once I can play a bit better I will get a tuber. It really does make some sweet sounds. She has the burstbucker pickups and the tone controls also pop up to change phasing and the volume controls pop up to do coil tapping. More than enough guitar for me for ever. Mahogany body, maple top and rosewood fret board and man I shouldn't have pissed away 20 years thinking about it. Been on that bitch 3-4 hours a day this week till my fingers almost bled loving every minute of it.

I got a dvd set called learn and master guitar, it has really got me going in the right direction. learning chords, notes, scales the whole shittery. Seriously been practicing min of 3-4 hours a day the last month. Also picked up rocksmith it really helps as a learning tool for beginners. Shows you techniques and gets you playing songs. I can play 4-5 complete songs on there. I find its nice after doing lessons to jam out on rocksmith for a while then plug into the amp and play free hand. learning some zepplin now.
Fuck I really should have been at this 20 years earlier.....
