Hi everybody. Very Happy
I found this forum and just browsing through it, I found a lot of cool stuff and thought I would join.
I have played guitar for about 17 years, rock mostly. In school I took classical guitar and music theory for two years, then I tried Jazz Guitar, I guess I was not ready for it then, especially coming from a classical background Shocked . Played around in bands for my 20's then turned 30 and just stopped playing.
Got married, life took over.
I will be turning 35 this month and realized that I missed playing. At this time Big Band, Jazz, and fingers style blues have caught my attention. I went out and played a handful of guitars, Hollow bodies mostly, that were in my price range and caught a Epiphone Zephry Regent. Now I spend the cold MI nights inside relearning what I had forgotten and letting Jazz confuse and delight me.

Learning lots,
Paul.

We start out young and then we stop playing for a while. No matter how old we get, it's still in our blood and calls out to us loud and clear. Glad to see you back playing.
