I had older siblings, sister and brother that played many instruments. Mom played piano. My grandfather I never knew also played guitar. Around age 17 I got my first cheap electric and it came very naturally. My bro showed me a few things and I honestly think it is in my dna, I can play most any instrument if I put a little effort in. Also I am blessed/cursed with perfect pitch. I don’t think there was any motivation beyond just knowing that it would be something I would be able to somewhat master. Played with a high school bud and a phenomenal drummer(RIP Scot) in the early eighties had life get in the way for many years but the last 10 have brought me to playing with another guitarist and many different drummers and bassists. I sing lead about 90% of our setlist.
