  • My name is Scott... And i have a (guitar) problem.

    1. I have played music my whole life and never really had any success with it. Just a self deprecating joke.

    2. Just outside Toronto, Canada

    3. At this point just to make my own music on my own terms. 

    4. If I have to pick one it's my USA deluxe Strat.. my Gibson es339 is a close second though.

    5. So many.. I can't get enough of sweet emotion though.. maybe tender surrender.. Riviera Paradise.. you don't have enough storage on your server for my complete list :)

    Where did you username come from?
    I couldn't think quick enough when signing up. I guess it is kind of subliminal, because I have recently been listening to some Zep. Robert Plant's son's name (tragically died when a child) was Karak. I misspelled it and thought, hey I will leave this - it sounds like an ancient Egyptian city. Weird.

    Q2:  Where in the world/country are you?
    From South Wales. Still number one in the rugby world. I hear your groans, I feel your hurt. Don't worry, it's just a passing phase.

    Q3:  What's your main musical ambition?
    To be able to smoothly navigate the fretboard, and compose a piece of music (probably fingerstyle) that makes me happy.

    Q4:  Your "best" bit of gear - just the one?
    My Huss and Dalton OM, which is up for sale because I hanker for a Celtic/European sound.

    Q5:  Your #1 ever track - again, just the one?
    Mary Jane 2. Nick Drake is my all-time favourite artist.

  • Hello all

    This looks like a very extensive forum, which I hope to enjoy being a member of. I'm also going to be asking members for help with locating a particular guitar, but I'll post that somewhere more relevant. So, here are my 5 answers:

    Q1:  Where did you username come from? Well, it's just my name.

    Q2:  Where in the world/country are you? Honiton, Devon, UK

    Q3:  What's your main musical ambition? Play more in public. I'm an acoustic guitarist and singer and do some folk club spots with my friend

    Q4:  Your "best" bit of gear - just the one? Martin J40 with k&k mini pure tranducers

    Q5:  Your #1 ever track - again, just the one? Easy! 'Like a Rolling Stone' Bob Dylan, Highway 61 Revisited, 1965. It's not even my favourite track, but it is my number 1. The snare drum hit at the beginning is the start of rock music. Released nearly 2 years before Sgt Pepper and nearly a year before Revolver (the two most popular contenders)!

    Cheers, Rob

  • Hi All, long time lurker here finally decided to get involved!

    Q1:  Where did you username come from?

    It's from the name my son chose for our imaginary blues duo, the Mojo Bros (he's only 7 and unfortunately doesn't have the attention span to learn properly but loves to mess around with his Squire Mini Strat and an old harp we have knocking around)

    Q2:  Where in the world/country are you?

    Dereham, Norfolk, UK

    Q3:  What's your main musical ambition?

    Currently my live playing is limited to taking part in my local regular Blues Jam, but I love it and would like to join/ form a band, just to perform on the local scene and play with others for fun.

    Q4:  Your "best" bit of gear - just the one?

    Tricky choice, but I think my 99 Samick Epiphone Sheraton just about edges it. It plays great and feels like it's picked up a bit of mojo over the years, sometimes it stops me in my tracks and I just can't stop looking at it! My wife hates that and refers to all my guitars as my mistresses!

    Q5:  Your #1 ever track - again, just the one?

    Impossible to choose one forever but today I'll go for 'Crossroads' by Cream

    Hello fellow guitar people.

    My username could have come from space, or indeed, Mars. But actually it's bits of my real name with bits taken out. 

    I'm in West Lancashire, just up road from Liverpool. 

    I hope to to continue to live and breath music for the rest of eternity. I would like to collaborate with more musicians, maybe even earn some dosh. Imagine that. And shred. I deffo wanna shred. 

    I just got a Boss rc1. Spent all of Sunday recording a slo version of 'Roses' by Outkast. I don't think I've ever had so much fun..I think for me, getting a looper for the first time is kind of life changing. I really didn't know you could be so creative with such a simple device. Mind. Blown.

    This last question is ridiculous. How you expect me to answer that?

    Gonna have to go with first thing that springs to mind.

    Edit. I've changed my mind. Gonna have to go with the second thing that springs to mind..

    Trenchtown Rock by Bob Marley & the Wailers. Off of the Live! album. On Vinyl. Very loud through enormous speakers. At home with my family. On a Sunday afternoon.

  • Hi all,

    I've joined the forum after kind of re-kindling my interest in guitar(s). Trying to continue learning where I stopped years ago, never really getting to the point where I'd be happy with my level. So the plan is to browse around and see if some of the questions I'd have have already been covered and if not perhaps ask a few.

    To start with I've put up my old guitar for sale here which I understand people are not so crazy about from a new member. But it just so happens that it was a natural sequence of events. :) As it happens I don't have the space for multiple guitars, or a permanent rig setup so it was a bit of a chore to take everything out in order to play the electric. To the point where I stopped playing which is not good! So after many years of this status quo I bought a shiny new acoustic and now have to sell my trusted old Epi Les Paul. Which was a first and only guitar I ever owned.

    Onto the questions..

    Q1:
    There isn't a big story behind it. Had to come up with something. First went with PlayerFromOuterSpace but that seemed to long and misleading. :)

    Q2:
    Reading, UK at the moment and for the past decade and a half. Originally from Croatia.

    Q3:
    To brush up on and improve my skills so I can play good enough to satisfy myself. Which isn't saying much since I never liked the simple stuff.

    Q4:
    My brand new Takamine P5DC. I am loving the quality, playability and sound. Completely new experience for me.

    Q5:
    My track or someone else's? I recorded a few but one is the most accomplished and so my favourite. That would be a cover of Neil Young's Heart of Gold, where I play the rhythm guitar and my brother does a couple trumpet solos. Plus sequenced piano, bass and drums. I actually think the base for the backing track started from some GuitarPro file, exported to MIDI and edited for proper instruments etc.

    If we are talking about a track from a real band then this is an extremely hard question and I cannot single out just one. I love so many different things musically.

    I love a 210 speaker setup! My love is a musicman 210 sixty five that I've modded with kt88's.

    I'm from Manchester

    Main musical ambition is to write music with friends and independently. Get better on guitar drums and bass, and gig once in a while!

    My best bit of gear is probably my rig. I've got some beastly Adamson speakers that kick ass on a humongous scale.

    My number 1 track is probably Papua New Guinea by Future Sounds of London

    Hi all! I've been lurking for a while, in the past few months I've posted a couple of questions and had a pair of deals in the classifieds. I want to participate more so it's about time I properly introduced myself!

    Q1:  Where did you username come from?

    It's my name. I've been on Internet sites since the 90s and always try to use my name first. Never been able to before.

    Q2:  Where in the world/country are you?

    London

    Q3:  What's your main musical ambition?

    Well, I started learning guitar a little under a year ago, so my current ambition is to be able to go into a shop and not feel ashamed of my playing.

    Q4:  Your "best" bit of gear - just the one?

    Mmmh difficult to choose, but the one I'm using 90% of the time I play is the Line6 G10 I got recently - freedom!

    Q5:  Your #1 ever track - again, just the one?

    Roundabout - Yes

    I also want to thank the mods for creating and maintaining this board. As I say above I've been on the internet for a loooong time and I've seen communities of every type come and go, and I know how much effort it takes to keep them from becoming bad. This is such a great community, knowledgeable and welcoming, and it's because of the efforts of the mods. Thanks for that.
