    Hey all, been lurking for a bit on this forum. Dig it. Grew up metal, still metal at 30. Love the 80's stuff like Ozzy, Maiden, Priest, Slayer, Megadeth, etc. Learning about the new stuff, and digging the shit out of doom (Sword, Witchcraft, etc.) Paul Gilbert is my current guitar god.

    Had a bad Bluegrass habit for the last 8 years; getting bored with playing it, and have started to get back to electrics with high gain. Metal and bluegrass have a lot of similarities musically in the talent that the heavyweights have, and that is what got me into it in the first place. Tired of the message of the music, as I side more with Tom Araya and Dave Mustaine than Ricky Skaggs lyrically. Growing up in the stank ass crotch of the bible belt will do that to you.

    Bluegrass is tits, and the bluegrass players are monsters.

    Sounds like you'd be a big fan of (if you aren't already) Andy Wood. He's a bluegrass guy at the core, but loves playing metal/shred stuff with bluegrass mixed in. He's quite the player.
