    Hi everyone,

    I'm a 30-something guitarist and teacher looking to click with like-minded people. I used to play professionally and was lucky enough to tour all over Europe. My career stalled when I suffered a hand injury (non-guitar related) and I was sidelined for a few years.

    Fave bands/guitarists? Well, I wish it was permanently 1992 so maybe you can figure out I love everything 80s, especially late 80s.

    At the top is Eddie Van Halen.
    He's closely followed by Glenn Tipton.
    The rest of my faves include Dave Murray, Adrian Smith, Nuno Bettencourt, Dann Huff, Scotti Hill and David Gilmour.

    Favourite solos include:
    Beat It, Ice Cream Man - Van Halen
    Beyond the Realms of Death, Reckless - Glenn Tipton
    Get the Funk Out - Nuno Bettencourt
    First Time (Coca Cola theme) -Ira Siegel
    I'll See You in my Dreams - Dann Huff
    18 and Life - Scotti Hill
    The Final Countdown - Jon Norum

    As you can probably tell from the list, I like solos played with fire and melody. Not into the new breed of players who, to me, lack melody and all sound a bit samey. No offence to those of you into these guys.

    Wish it was the 80s still, you say? Hate modern music? Welcome home, son.
