Trust me, there is no better time in the history of mankind to learn how to play the guitar than NOW. I have been playing for like 24 years and if I had the internet and cool sites like they have now with video lessons and tabs I would have been 1,000% better! You want to write your GF a song, there is not really a more convenient instrument than a decent acoustic guitar (MUCH more portable than a piano :-) ). I wrote a song for my wife (we're married 13 years now) back in the '90s. I went to a local recording studio and spent 4 hours playing every instrument (and I was no drummer! took 2 separate tracks, one for basic beat and one for fills/rolls) for a 4 minute song. I first played it for her on an acoustic, then brought her along to the studio and she could see what goes in to making a recording. It was challenging but worth it! I leaned alot that day about sound-on-sound recording... Now I have a 10 track digital zoom recorder in the basement... too bad I'm not a recording engineer :-( I am learning that tho...slowly. Do it... get a guitar and learn to play! The look in a girl's eyes when they watch you sing a song for them that you wrote is priceless. life is short, just do it!

I play guitar, hence my MyLot name. I also play drums and piano. I never learned any band instruments, I always thought band was sorta geeky so I joined the choir. Playing guitar takes patience, practice and a willing to learn, once you do the whole world opens up. Give it a try, the least you will lose is your time.
