Nickname: beginnerplayer666
Real (full) name: Paul Matthew Johnson
Age and birthday: 33 years old, 3/7/1986
Habitat: Gerogia, USA

Which guitar(s) do you own?
for an acoustic, I have a Rogue RD-80. For an electric, I have a Jackson JS-22 Dinky.

Which guitar do you currently play on?
both

Which amp(s) do you own?
I don't feel ready for the amp and cab that I want yet so for now I'm using an audio interface(scarlett solo) and a couple studio monitors and play through a DAW called Reaper. But I plan to get a Randall Satan some day and a 4x12 Cab. Can't remember the name of the cab, but I remember it's made in poland and has demon speakers in it.

How long have you been playing guitar?
Just started learning how to play. I'm on day 3.

Which is/are your favorite music genre(s)?
Metal

Which genre do you play on your guitar often?
Don't know enough to play any songs. I'm only on day 3.

Who are your favorite bands?
Metallica, Korn, Slipknot, Bathory(it feels good just to type it lol), Iron Maiden, ACDC, etc.

What inspired you to start playing guitar?
I was developing a drinking problem because I was using alcohol to deal with my personal stuff. I turned to music as a way to replace drinking to much because music makes me feel something besides anger and bitterness. Music is like a drug that doesn't have any negative side affects for me, so that's why I've decided to learn to play guitar.


Do you play in a band or have you been playing in a band?
Nope, only on day 3 of learning to play guitar.

Why do you play guitar?
Music makes me feel something other than anger.

What are your goals for the future?
My goals are to learn to play guitar, learn how to use Reaper and get good enough to the point of being able to compose my own music and sell it. I have no ambitions to be a big rock star, I just need a creative outlet for the things life throws at me that isn't destructive. Music just works for me in that department.

Feel free to check out my first ever music project on youtube! I won't post a link to it here out of fear I might be disrespecting the forum's rules. Just look up "666 Days of Metal" on youtube and you'll find my channel. I'm also known as beginnerplayer666 on youtube.

Nickname: Hyperpotame
Real (full) name: Franck
Age and birthday: 52 (July 8, 1967)
Habitat: Morbihan, France.

Which guitar(s) do you own?

Squier Telecaster (open G tuning) & Ibanez TCM50 (classic tuning)

Which guitar do you currently play on?

Both.

Which amp(s) do you own?

Fender Mustang

How long have you been playing guitar?

3 months

Which is/are your favorite music genre(s)?

Old School Metal, Rock, Blues, 60's & 70's, Traditional music, Folk, Country & Classical.

Which genre do you play on your guitar often?

Just learning, so... Let's say that I'm planning to play Blues & Rock principally.

Who are your favorite bands?

Led Zeppelin & Rolling Stones are the first that come to my mind, but theres so many. I love Jimmy Page, Jimi Hendrix, Rory Gallagher, Keith Richards, David Gilmour, Tony Iommi, Ritchie Blackmore.

What inspired you to start playing guitar?

Watching Jimmy Page playing when I was a kid.

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

Nope, and don't plan to unless I find people in my area in the same age range and same level (I started 3 months ago) and with the same musical influences, but since I live in the coutryside (very small villages), it's not likely to happen... But we never know.

Why do you play guitar?

To get all the girls, and also because it keeps my hands busy so it prevents me from picking my nose, because believe me, picking an Hyperpotamus nose is an endless task. No seriously, I always wanted to, and now I have a lot of spare time and could afford some equipment, so was the occasion.

What are your goals for the future?

After 3 months it's hard to say... Chords learning goes smoothly, but my strumming sucks more than a Tornado vacuum, so need to work better on that point. Also, I really want to learn Open G Tuning too, for blues and Keith Richards stuff.
