Who are your favorite bands?  right now i'm listening to the Horrorpops.  

What inspired you to start playing guitar? always wanted to learn then my son said he wanted to learn and i bought the Aria package.  he'd rather skateboard than practice, so it ended up on my hands and i'm going insane with it.

Do you play in a band or have you been playing in a band?  bought some software that said "band in a box".  does that count?

Why do you play guitar?  tired of dating musicians.  i'm going to get real good and fall in love with myself.

3% of all quitting smokers succeed, without using help like councelling, meds or gums

the thing I am most proud of till today, is that I am part of that 3%!

Maybe I should start a "how to stop smoking" website :D


Marcopolo; your English is quite good :P
now both parts of Belgium are represented here!

I'm part of that 3% aswell. :D But I'm not really proud of it simply because I only smoked for a few months so I guess I never really where addicted to it.

Hello Everyone

I've been lurking here for almost a week, and it's time to introduce myself and start posting.

First, let me say that this is the best guitar site I've found.  So good in fact, that I was actually inspired to make a donation, and will likely make more in the future.  I'm thinking that those of you with jobs should also make a contribution, because the benefits here far outweigh the small expense.

Regarding the questionnaire..............

Nickname: Yojimbo
Real (full) name: Neale
Age and birthday: Early 50s now....where do the years go?
Habitat: Toronto, Canada

Which guitar(s) do you own? Nothing special - cheap electric for learning (Squier), and a flamenco guitar

Which guitar do you currently play on? Electric

Which amp(s) do you own? Nothing special - cheap beginner one.

How long have you been playing guitar?  I first started in my early 20s on acoustic with a pick, got bored pretty quickly, and switched to flamenco.  When practicing started to interfere with my thesis at University, I quit (I was never very good).  Now that I'm much older, I'm looking for a new hobby and I've decided to have another go at it.  

Which is/are your favorite music genre(s)? For now, I want to do electric, but no special genre (except that I'd like to be able to play some ACDC tunes and other rock songs)

Which genre do you play on your guitar often? Genre?  Is beginner a genre?

Who are your favorite bands? Don't really have favourites, but if I have to pick, these days it's ACDC and Led Zep.  Guess my age is showing.

What inspired you to start playing guitar?  Initially, it was from listening to flamenco guitar.  Now, I just need a new hobby, although I can see myself giving flamenco another go in the future if I can find a teacher near my home.  I wonder if Justin will start posting flamenco lessons..............

Do you play in a band or have you been playing in a band? lol

Why do you play guitar? Hobby

What are your goals for the future? Just to improve

Hi

Thanks for the welcome and info.

Re ages, I'm thinking there's quite a mix of ages from what I've seen so far.  Nothing wrong with that.

most youngsters don't care for manners :)
