Fulfilling my introductory obligation. My name is Phil however that is really not important. I am new to guitar(about a year). I am also 43 years of age, yeah I know it took me long enough to get here. I enjoy "classic rock" and metal(old and new).
I have spent most of this last year with an emphasis on classic rock until about a month ago. I have always listened to metal however never really contemplated playing it until recently. For whatever reason I purchased a high gain pedal and have been hooked ever since. I have found much more satisfaction and feeling in this type of playing. It really is therapeutic to me.
I don't have grand visions of ever being on stage, I just want to become the best guitarist I can be. I really am here to gain knowledge from those of you who are willing to part with it. My ego has been checked at the door a long time ago however my skin is plenty thick. So fire for effect.
