well yea its difficult to learn for sure
Im just a beginner realy but i can play little wing/purple haze,voodoo child /hey joe etc. im self taught but i learnt a lot from youtube aswell :)
Step by step tutorials on there ..anyone can learn .. but playing like hendrix.. no one can learn!! ha

So is the guitar the only instrument you play or are there any others?
Voodoo child,Purple haze and Hey Joe are my faves actually :)
I wish I could play an instrument. I've always wished I could play the piano.

Superb drawing Paul. I've never used charcoal, what is it like to draw with?

thanks loads :)

Its okay as long as use right type of paper n charcoal
I never use normal charcoal pencils with the lead type
I use compressed charcoal pencils

Its messy but if you use seperate paper to lean on then you can get away without any smudges etc :)
