Hey! My name is Peter Hodgson, been playing guitar since I was 8 (I'm 33 now), and I'm from Melbourne, Australia. I write for a bunch of Aussie mags (Mixdown, Australian Guitar, Australian Musician, Heavy, and Beat - for whom I'm their metal columnist) as well as a few websites (guitarworld.com, gibson.com, andertons.co.uk) and I have my own site, called I Heart Guitar.
I play lots of different heavy styles - hard rock, thrash, death metal, shred, djent etc - as well as the old blues phase. My main guitar is a killer Buddy Blaze 7-string prototype with DiMarzio Crunch Lab and LiquiFire pickups.
Welcome man! Love your blog!
