Raise your hand if you’ve ever taken a baseball bat, flipped it upside down and pretend to dual with Jimi Hendrix over “All Along The Watchtower”. Good, I’m not alone. Here are ten reasons why it’s worth your time  

1) Getting started is simple: Walk in to almost any mega retail store like Target or Wal-Mart and you’re bound to find a guitar set sold for around $100. If you’re keen into supporting local businesses, go on down to your music shop and buy a used guitar for the same price if not cheaper.

2) Relieves stress: It doesn’t take very long to learn a few chords and put together a song. Playing guitar is an easy way to relieve stress and these simple chords can help take your mind off any troubles you might have.

3) Create your own style: The versatility of the guitar allows you to create your own style and not be abided by certain styles of playing. Funk, alternative, metal, Flamenco, jazz, soft rock, the list goes on and on for the different styles you can play. It’s not uncommon for people to bridge many genres together to create their own style of guitar playing.
