    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.

    Q2:  Where in the world/country are you?
    Around North Manchester these days.

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

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

    Q5:  Your #1 ever track - again, just the one? 
    Black Sabbath - War Pigs

    Hello all!! 

    Q1:  Where did you username come from?

    Hrimfaxi - in Norse mythology, The Hrimfaxi is the horse of night - The dark horse.  Used this name in various projects of mine!

    Q2:  Where in the world/country are you?

    Beckenham, Kent.

    Q3:  What's your main musical ambition?

    Get back into playing live and never stop progressing

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

    Not the best, but my most loved guitar is a BCR Mockingbird I-series, I've had guitars come and go around It, but this always stays.  The I-series is a bit of an oddball. 

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

    Megadeth - Set The World Afire

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"

    I'd have put that between York and Goole.  I currently live in deepest Dorset, but I am from Hull originally but parents currently live in Beverley so come up fairly frequently.

    Hi

    Q1:  Where did you username come from?

    To be able to play at home to a good level.

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

    Competition Orange Squier Tele, I've had several other guitars and never thought I'd bother with a Squier (snobbishly) but I picked this up in the local music shop and fell in love instantly. I may never need another guitar.

    Hendrix cover of all along the watchtower <3

    Hello All, especially @Bridgehouse @Legionreturns @Snags @darthed1981 @modellista @markblagdon @Alnico @Sasquatch_Bob @fandango @Phil_aka_Pip @sticker @CustomPedalBoards @vasselmeyer @Blackjack ;

    Having gone to a Jam session, albeit as a novice still learning frets & chords- I think I may have caught the bug...guitar bug. Had an amazing time jumping from room to room and even having a spat at camera work. That's my voice on the end of the comfy video..yep forgot it was still on lol! I got to have a go room 3 for a bit to hear my Tele amplified for the first time ever and my god isn't it unforgiving when plugged in. I straightaway got the difference from playing it acoustically for the main. Looking forward to learning a lot more via the GT-100 at home- even if through headphones for now! bring on November...

    I am Alnico's fiance and he is teaching me to play among other things! So I can't escape guitars even if I want to. If you can't beat them join em!

    Thanks to everyone for having me at the jam and here for letting me join. 


    Q1:  Where did your username come from?

    Route66 is what we have called my 1966 relic handbuilt Telecaster- so thought apt!

    Q2:  Where in the world/country are you?

    Liverpool, UK.

    Q3:  What's your main musical ambition?

    Currently to learn something for the next jam.

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

     @Alnico 's Strat! lol

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

    Whitesnake - 'here I go again' (Original version)

    Welcome aboard @Route66 you are part of the gang now :)
    We should all probably bear in mind more when posting on here (and I don't exclude myself from this) that the guitar world is very small, the Fretboard is quite well known, and it is not uncommon at all for the subjects of our posts to read them...

    @Phil_aka_Pip and there are an awful lot of "local" people!

    @route66 from one relative newbie to another, welcome aboard :)  Look forward to seeing, and playing with, you at one of the upcoming jams.   The beauty there is that if you fluff it or get lost, you can just stop until you know where to come back in, because there are so many people playing you've got cover.
