Thanks very much for the welcome and the good vibes!  I was a bit late to the party with Icicle Works/Ian McNabb, only discovered them in the last couple of years when a friend mentioned them, but I'm definitely making up for lost listening time now.  Was lucky enough to get along to an IW gig in January this year which was a lot of fun  :)
I just did a quick hunt around the forum and worked out what the AVOYP section is, the chances of me being brave enough to post in there are pretty slim but let's see how it goes!  I'm certainly enjoying myself so far, and am really looking forward to my fingers toughening up so I can practice more  :D
Nice old guitar there, I’ve got a 70’s classical guitar myself, it’s a lovely old friend! You’ve got a friend with Brian, he plays a Classical guitar most of the time too! Keep plugging along at it, you’ll soon get better and maybe catch the GAS (guitar acquisition syndrome) like all of the rest of us 😂😂😂
Oh and don’t worry about posting your efforts in AVOYP, you will get nothing but positive advice and encouragement in there, anyone says any different and I’ll give them a virtual slap!!!

I think I've already got a slight case of GAS, planning a visit to some local guitar shops with a couple of friends who play... could be dangerous, and tough on my credit card!  I will still play this one though, I've become quite fond of it over the last week or so  :)

Maybe one day I'll be brave enough for AVOYP.  Been involved in music for many years but have always had issues with any kind of solo thing.  But we'll see.  And if I do, I'll definitely shout you if I encounter anyone who needs a virtual slap ;D

Which guitar do you currently play on? N/A

Which amp(s) do you own? N/A

How long have you been playing guitar?   I did try to learn from an Ernie Ball book when I was 17...obviously didn't get vey far!!!

Which is/are your favorite music genre(s)?   Rock, blues, some jazz & big band music, classical. I can listen & enjoy many genres but not into rap or similar & 'thrash' type metal I'd guess you call it.

Which genre do you play on your guitar often? N/A

Who are your favorite bands?   The Beatles (my absolute favourite), Pink Floyd, Dire Straits, ELO, The Eagles, U2 & CCR to name a few... :-)

What inspired you to start playing guitar?   My love of music & something to challenge me at the same time...& my favourite guitarists of which there are a few.

I broke a couple of fingers years ago on my right hand that never 'knitted' properly (as a guitarist I'll be a natural lefty) & I'm determined to find a way to be able to play something.

Nickname: Sir
Real (full) name: Doug
Age and birthday:49 going on 17
Habitat: Melbourne, Australia

Which guitar(s) do you own? A Gretsch Rancher, I've also got a Gretsch Penguin Parlour acoustic I bought to restart playing acoustic guitar on but I think I'm gonna sell that. Electricwise I have a Fireglo Rickenbacker 330 and a Mapleglo Rickenbacker 360

Which guitar do you currently play on? I mostly play what the Gretsch website refers to as "G5034TFT RANCHER™, FIDELI-TRON PICKUP, BIGSBY® TAILPIECE, SAVANNAH SUNSET"

Which amp(s) do you own? Currently it's one of those little two channel Fender Acoustosonic 40's for Acoustic and a Tiny Terror Hard Wired Edition head with a couple of 1x10 boxes. Thinking about getting either a Yamaha THR30II or a Postive Grid Spark soon.

How long have you been playing guitar? On and off for like 35 years or something

Which is/are your favorite music genre(s)? Oh so many. I've played in punk bands, DJ'd reggae, got tattoos of hard rock bands, love eclectic stuff like Tom Waits, Laibach, Babymetal, whatevs

Which genre do you play on your guitar often? Hard rock to country on acoustic

Who are your favorite bands? So many. The Stooges, Motorhead, Rose Tattoo, Ian Dury, Tom Waits, Girlschool Cro Mags, Agnostic Front.

What inspired you to start playing guitar? Seeing the film clip for Jailbreak by AC/DC

Do you play in a band or have you been playing in a band? Yeah I've played bass, sung and played guitar in bands.

Why do you play guitar? At the moment it's because I live in an apartment and I can be self contained and make music without a band, just me singing and playing my guitar.

What are your goals for the future? I just recorded 15 songs as a demo and realised where I can make improvements. I'm looking at getting singing lessons so I can be a better performer next and stepping my guitar playing up from campfire and punk level guitarist to something more musical and interesting. I seem to have a real block writing songs for acoustic but I've written scores of songs for electric. I guess being an accomplished acoustic singer/songwriter would be cool.

Welcome, Snaggletooth.

Would that be Ian Dury as in Ian Dury and the Blockheads?

That takes me back..."Hit me with your rhythm stick"

Thanks Robert!

Most definitely the one and same Ian Dury. The UK's greatest lyricist.

Which guitar do you currently play on? Yamaha F310

Which amp(s) do you own? None - acoustic all the way!

Why do you play guitar? It’s an interesting challenge, occasionally very satisfying, and relaxing. It also looks cool in the corner of the room and makes people think I’m more talented than I actually am.
