Hi folks

I've been hanging about as a guest for a few days, but my account is activated now so I'll step out of the shadows & do the introduction:

So then, this is me: 41, English, married, played guitar since about 14 I think (I was playing drums from age 8, then I began to branch out). I've mostly played rock music (what you yanks would know as "classic rock") & blues, although I went to music college for five years & did a degree in classical theory. I think I can now admit to having slipped out of the 'semi-pro' bracket down to the fringes of 'amateur' again as I've had a busy few years & not gigged so much as I would like.

I found this place by chance: I logged on to the Guitarist magazine forum here in the UK, which I've not visited for a long time, and in the first thread I looked at someone (thomasross20 step forward) mentioned this site & how good it was.

So here I am.

One last thing: for any of the Guitarist forumites who come here, I'm not the guy who uses "huw" as a forum name there (Welsh bass player IIRC?). I used to post as huw2 (how original Rolling Eyes ), but haven't been there in an age.

Anyway - enought about me - hi folks Very Happy

so are you a jazz slanted guy now?


I don't know, which way does jazz slant? Very Happy

Sorry Laughing yeah - I've always listened to jazz, but these days I find I'm playing that way more (or trying to).

Anyway, I always believe in learning new things, and I have more to learn about playing jazz with the right feeling than I do for the styles I've been playing for years.

Hi folks Wink Seeing as you have a Huw from England, I thought I'd introduce myself. I'm Hugh from Scotland.
Looks like a great site you've got here. Loads of info it seems.
I'll need to go for now, but I'll start posting some stuff when I've got more time.
