Hi there, short introduction.
Male, 42 years, being in metal since 1978, three kids, lousy solo player, reasonable rhytm player.
Back in the 80s early 90s i played a few bands now and then, had a lot of fun but that was it.
After that i lost track of playing and was more interested in partying, girls and working. I know, strange combi but without the work a couldn't get enough money for the partying. etc.. etc..
For now i'm in settled, as we called it in dutch "huisje Boompje beestje", so i try to pick up the guitar. Never sold my maingear and stored the stuff on the attic. I even bought new/2nd hand gear in the past 15 years with the promise to myself to play with it, but after a few months untouched it ended on the same attic, the only thing i did was building a few tele's just for the fun of it.
So here i am, trying to get my guitarskills up and running again, read some new information what has happened the past years.
And do i have the right Gear for being a metal master etc..
