I've posted over at SS.org for a few months and found out about this place from over there. I recognize a few names from over there too. It seems there are a few more people around my age around here. I use a different screen name over there and I just decided to go ahead and use my real name over here.
I started playing guitar many years ago and played off and on for about seven years. I really wasn't very good but I always had a lot of fun. I ended up putting life, career and eventually family ahead of guitar and didn't play for somewhere around 13 or 14 years.
I picked up the guitar again almost a year and a half ago, after my wife got me some lessons for a Christmas present. My practice sessions are now my therapy. Now I'm trying to build up my gear and just get out and have some fun.
I play mostly metal, especially old school thrash metal. Well, at least I try. My old hands don't go as fast as they used to go. So now I'm just a dirty old man who enjoys playing metal.
Enough about me. I'll see you guys around.
