Just joined - and it's a pleasure to be here!
My reason for joining is to glean/share ideas, perhaps have one or two questions answered regarding playing guitar, and so on - above all, to learn more and improve my guitar playing. I'm a leftie and currently have three guitars I use - an Aria Pro II electric with Fender '69 Custom pickups fitted, a Yamaha APX with its on-board circuitry replaced by a Fishman pickup, and a Stella parlour guitar with a cheap and cheerful pickup fitted. This one's tuned to Open G for slide work.
I love playing blues, and am fascinated by the Mississippi Northern Hill Country style played by the likes of R. L. Burnside - just love the raw, dirty sounds and the drone quality this style has. Alongside that, I combine the music of British rock and blues, and write my own blues songs, self-producing a blues CD 'Another Outsider (13 tracks - 8 own, 5 covers). Currently working on the Beatles' 'Come Together' and Fleetwood Mac's 'The Green Manalishi'.
So! Really hoping I can make friends with like-minded players/individuals!
