    New guy from Milwaukee WI

    Howdy all,

    Just thought I'd introduce myself:

    I'm a returning guitar addict Used to play when I was younger, was even in something akin to a melodeath band in high school. Unfortunately, like a lot of other high school metalheads I know, we were often more interested in avoiding sobriety than in playing music. Still, we managed to record some passable tracks, though we could never really back it up live due to the aforementioned issue. Here's some samples for anyone who cares:

    Anyways, high school ended and I got real sober and into making a decent life for myself, and kind of forgot about the guitar for a while. Recently came back to it, and with a more adult mindset realized how many things I learned incorrectly back in the day. Making a concerted effort to fix poor techniques from days of yore, and getting back into writing music as well.

    Recently obtained a friend for my trusty early 2000s Jackson DKMG, a Douglas Hadron 727. Been having lots of fun rediscovering the 7 string while I practice, and after listening to multitudes of comparison videos and reading plenty of threads, ordered a pair of Dimarzio D-Activators for it. Not sure on the D-Activator for the neck, but they came as a pair used, so we'll see.

    Looking forward to chatting with and learning from everyone here, thanks for having me!
