More or less New - Hi All
I registered last year, but only had a handful of posts. My "regular" forum has been having so many technical issues I decided I need a new home for music discussion. Seems like a good group to talk about music with!
"Classic rock" is probably my favorite genre, being as wide a melting-pot as it is, but I really dig blues, rock, metal, jazz, bluegrass, country, classical... not a huge fan of rap, although I did get into some of it in the 90s. Pretty much anything with guitars is good with me. I grew up listening to only metal and hard rock - if it didn't have pointy guitars and Marshall stacks I wasn't interested. Then I went through a huge blues phase for several years, and that's pretty much all I was into. Then I broadened out again, getting into jazz and country, and focused on songwriting (Lucinda Williams was a big influence).
Started playing guitar when I was 16, been playing ever since. I was in a lot of bands up until about 8-9 years ago when I got too busy with a new job. Now I have a 4 year old son so I just play for myself, but I do practice virtually every day. Hopefully when he's older and I can start gigging again I'll have a lot to show for my 'woodshedding' time.
Top 5 Albums:
1) Electric Ladyland
2) Dark Side of the Moon (alternates into #1 spot depending on the day)
3) Band of Gypsies
4) Live at the Fillmore East (The Allman Brothers Band)
5) Master of Puppets

Hi, nice to meet you. Quite detailed information you gave about your favorite stuff man. Thats pretty good, though I dont think people really need to know all that.
Anyway, hope to see you around the forum. Have fun.
