  • Evening all: 

    Noob here. Also, world's worst guitarist: been playing 10 years and I still can't do a solo or hold a decent barre chord. I still love it though and it's good for songwriting.  

    Q1:  Where did you username come from?

    A: An unnatural love for a kids TV show. 

    Q2:  Where in the world/country are you?

    A. Manchester


    Q3:  What's your main musical ambition?

    For my band's new album to actually sell well and gain some real respect ( I am a drummer in the daytime ) 

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

    Guitarwise - my PRS SE Semi Hollowbody.  It's bloody lush. One day i will have a real Strat though. 

    Q5: Crikey, er...guitarwise, Amelia by Joni Mitchell. That mr Metheney knows his way around a fretboard, and no mistake. 


    Hiya, my name is Stuart, I am a drummer, and have been playing for 37 years, and playing guitar, as it says up there ten. I really am rubbish, but in that I mostly play guitar for writing or at parties I can live with it :-) My current band is not what you might call full of musos but our lead guitarist is the best guitarist I have ever played with - she is incredible. She kind of inspired me to get back into serious guitar practice. I doubt I will ever be any good but just the learning process is a good thing, and playing the guitar has made me a much better drummer. 


    Nice place you have here. :-)

    To one day build a pedal so awesome that it brings about either world peace or a zombie apocalypse.

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

    Q5:  Your #1 ever track - again, just the one?
    Tough, very tough. I'll go with Black Sabbath - Die Young
    User name is a derivative of my second name , it came about from playing championship manager with my mate when we were younger. 

    I'm in Belfast, N.I .

    Ambition would be to play in a blues band. Its my passion . 

    My other half would say headphones but I would say the vox headphone effects amp. (I know gimmicky) 

    Track.... can't answer that! Ok.... Layla!

    I joined up to forum last year but just saw this thread recently (sorry) so about time I posted this. Did read the Classifieds rules at the time though. There's tonnes of great knowledge on this forum. 

    Q1:  Where did you username come from?

    Boring - just from names.

    Q2:  Where in the world/country are you?

    Manchester.

    Q3:  What's your main musical ambition?

    To make the jump, join a band and play live but do love just getting the time to play at home.

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

    Divided by 13 EDT - I don't do this amp justice at all but it's a work of art and a keeper. 

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

    Very tough one. Al Green - Let's Stay Together is a great all-rounder.

    Q1:  Where did you username come from? 
    Haha from the Derbyshire Gritstone rarebreed, a breed originating from the high peak which is now found across the Pennines, which seemed to fit as I'm a Derbyshire lad who now finds myself near the Pennines just north of Manchester.

    Around North Manchester these days.

    Q3:  What's your main musical ambition?
    To continue to learn and enjoy myself.

    Oh tough choice, not the best but the one I'll never part with is my original, a Falcon electric guitar which I've had for 18 years so far.

    Black Sabbath - War Pigs

    Hey all. Coming back to playing guitar after almost 6 years. I never really stopped but been through complicated times with zero time to dive deep. Until now...

Bletchley Q3: What's your main musical ambition? Get back to enjoying some massive reverb/delay walls of sound in the comfort of my living room... Q4: Your "best" bit of gear - just the one? Any reverb with large decay... Q5: Your #1 ever track - again, just the one? Too many to list, so I'll choose the first on the album that started this all for me... The Velvet Underground's "Sunday Morning"
