I play guitar on my own, at open mic nights, and as part of a weekly get-together for guitarists, and as part a reggae band, for fun.

comment In live performance, what is a “monitor”
@Tim I suppose there are some reasons to be very loud on stage -- some guitar amps only produce the desired tone at high volume (ZZ Top put an amp in a soundproof box, with a mic). If you're trying to produce guitar feedback, you need loudness.

comment What are the advantages of learning to play on your own versus learning from a teacher?
Never had lessons - but I've been playing 20 years and I'm still not all that good. I'm certain if I'd had a teacher I'd have improved 10 times faster.
