I bought my guitar 6.5 years ago (freshman year of college).... I still don't know how to play it really :/ I had friends at the time that were going to teach me, but then I stopped hanging out with those friends a few months later. School got busy (excuses, excuses, ect.) and here I am, it sits on a stand, I finally took it out of it's case in the closet and put it on display thinking I'd pick it up more. I've wanted to learn for years, since high school at least. I just get self conscious about it and get discouraged when I can't play a note right because my hands don't reach the strings properly, or I'm just doing it wrong.
Sigh Someday I will eventually pick it up more than twice a year.
