Re: where is everybody from?

Hello gitariminTeli - Sorry that I don't know how to make my keyboard produce the dotless i letters.  You know a whole more about English than I know about Turkish.  We all know that we love making Music - that is what this site is about.

Don't let language be a barrier - hope you find good stuff here and enjoy the forum.  James

Bin playing 2 years and cannot put the soddin thing down, and I thought golf and fishing where addictive. Prefer playing with others but am not good enough to be in a band at the moment but will keep trying.

Re: where is everybody from?

I'm 46 from Cowal peninsula Scotland. Just found the site. Love it man. Oh and a wee note to Sarah, back in the seventies at the begining of punk it was full of girls. Think Suzi and the banchees, Toyah(in her early days) Debbie Harry. So start your own band.

Re: where is everybody from?

Hi everybody. I'm from Skopje, Macedonia, a country which probably lies in the James McCormick's "who-knows-where-else" category for most of you. But nevertheless, it's all cool. After all, I'm a good example on how far this guitar brotherhood goes smile

P.S. RESPECT for the 'St.Mirren guy', and ESPECIALLY for the '68 years YOUNG' guy. It killed me. lol

Re: where is everybody from?

Hey Everyone!  What a melting pot we have here.  It's great.  I've been living in Calgary, AB, Canada the past 17 yrs.  From Halifax, NS originally.  43 yr old female been playing almost a year now.  Actually played about 25 yrs ago as a beginner but broke up with the guy who had all the guitars and finally bought my own last year!  Wish I had done it sooner but better late than never.

Re: where is everybody from?

I am 40 years young and reside in Largo, Florida, USA.

I play music professionally, have done so since I turned 17. Play mostly solo but do a few duo,trio, and full band gigs. Do mostly cover songs but enjoy writing original material in my free time. I play many various instruments but guitar is my main squeeze. I am adamantly against performing with pre-recorded music. Every sound that comes out of my speakers are made on the stage by the musician(s) on that stage. I've recently incoorporated "looping" into my performances. I chose the Boss RC 20 XL model. Many people are amazed by the process in which a song is literally built right before their eyes. These devices are the most useful piece of music equipment made in years. They're now affordable for the average musician. (app $250) If you're a dude and wear eyeliner, please stop. It does not make you a better musician;>/

Dream it, Believe it, Achieve it..........

...thanks Chordie for making me a better musician

Give everything but up.

Re: where is everybody from?

Aloha guys! 28 year old Hawaiian boy living in Nebraska. Originally born in Germany(ex-Military brat).

Only really been playing for the past 8 months and loving it. I'm the worship leader at my church and wanted to learn to play guitar and add a different sound to the service. I'd eventually love to learn to play latin style fingerpicking, but that's later on down the road. Once you get the basics down, the possibilities are endless.
