    I know there's gotta be a couple of us on here so how about a thread to network and talk gear, possibly find a jam buddy or a new band to support. Whether you play professionally or just dabble on your own say hey.

    I'll kick it off, been playing for almost 15 years now started on trumpet in the school band and later picked up bass then made the switch to guitar a few years after. I've been in and out of many different bands of varying styles but currently playing in the metal band Bleed By Example.

    Just a dabbler here. I have played since age 18, but could not afford a guitar for many years.

    I currently have a Seagull acoustic with a pro setup. It plays as nice as many Taylors and Martins. Great tone on this one, which is why I bought it. I do alot of picking on this one.

    Also have a Epi Les Paul Blueburst which is great to play. Pro setup on it too. My nephew can really shred on that one. He can play pretty much any classic rock from the 70's and 80's.

    Got an Ibenez hollow body in tiger stripe for Christmas. It plays easier than the others. I am getting used to the hollow body sound. Its very different than the Les Paul. Experimenting with it to see what all it can do. Its capable of quite a few different sounds.

    My two electrics are played through a small crate amp that has some effects built in.

    I'm not great at playing, and may never be because I don't have the time to commit to playing in order to be really good. That, and I am not blessed with much musical tendencies. I have to work really hard to be almost mediocre. But I play almost every night, even if only for 10 minutes. Great thread idea. I'm looking forward to seeing what the real musicians do.

    As long as you enjoy playing that's all that matters, I've got an Ibanez hollow body as well I got from a member here a few years back, if I'm in a strumming kind of mood or feeling something with a lighter touch it's my go to.

    I have two or three "songs" I made up, but I have no words for them. (cue Shotgun Willie here) They would not be suitable material for a guy in a band called "Bleed by Example." LOL. With the exception of stuff I am trying to play in my Tom Petty and Willie Nelson books, my playing is pretty laid back. I have a stressful job, so my playing is usually my decompress time. Normally mellow stuff.

    lol don't let that deceive you I'm a music lover and enjoy just about everything, my library has everything from Merle Haggard to Slayer, Patsy Cline to Styx, Lamb of God to Led Zeppelin.

    This is my latest single, no vocals for about the first minute and a half and clean singing on the chorus.

    I Do not have pics handy to post but I play guitar although I havent touched my guitars in about a year. Used to play in a band in FL Fort Myers area that was called Head Held High wrote originals but the band broke up years ago and never went anywhere. I have 4 guitars. Gibson Les Paul Standard, ESP LTD Cobweb. Epiphone electric acoustic and a Luna electric acoustic. I would like to play again but just haven't had the time and I don't know anyone in my area to just jam with.
