Just when you thought it was safe....
Good to see u back dood!!
Welcome back Tommy!
I am Josh I am in columbia sc on the spartanburg side.
I think I never wrote here...
I play guitar since 14, now I'm 24 years old, live with parents, have a girl, no dog
I've been a long time away from my guitar (like, from 18 to 22 years old), when I started reading the forum and noticing how my guitar was awesome, and than took back the interest for guitars, posted my guitar here, I had bad luck cos she has been touched by some bad luthiers, but now she is a player again. It's my Focus 3000.
Well I was addicted to videogames than, and stopped playing, even sold my video card, because I know that would keep me from playing my guitar.
I am at the end of my graduation in history, and writing my final dissertation about why the devil is linked to heavy metal (if anyone can help me with some advice or source indications ). I might also try hard to be a serious musician also when all is over.
This forum helped me a lot, helped get back to playing my guitar. I am trying to make friends here, sometimes when I post I fear I might be doing it wrong and people will be too polite to say it.
well that's it.
That is really awesome that the KF has become your new motivation to start playin again
Get your profession in order first...BEFORE you persue the musical living. That way...when/if it doesn't work out, you have your education to fall back on.
Good luck with the dissertation...hopefully you can prove that metal is no more "devilish" than country, classical, pop, rap....etc
...and as far as your postings, most of us still dont have command of the English language....so just let it hang out man!
My dissertation is really inspiring, made my love for heavy metal much bigger. I wish I were older and have lived those moments, hete how music is today. Specially here in Brazil.
About the postings... I think it's me, I'm always afraid I was saying something stupid, specially when I want to be funny, sometimes in the wrong moment hahaha
don't forget Kiko and Wander Taffo! Caralho!
And the girls, oh yeah. But you are from Portugal, you can't complain about your girls either
I usually find girls from other places as beutiful as the Brazilian ones, but I just got used to the big ass they have here hehehe
I'm not new, but I took a break for a while and I decided to poke around a little. I'm from upstate NY but now live in Cincinnati,OH. So far the queen city is nice but I'm still getting used to the traffic and the fact that I can't get out of my truck without stepping in the neighbors lawn.
Incredibly varied group of people we have here!
My name is Brendan - I live in San Diego, and I'm a pastor at Community Bible Church in the Miramar area. Have been playing guitar for 24 years or so, and I'm one of those souls fortunate enough to get to do it for a living. Along with counseling, teaching, & the such. Have been married 13 years and have a couple of hobbitses that make life very interesting. Am also a race car instructor at Willow Springs International Raceway, and have been racing & building race cars for 20+ years. And I'm a huge geek - very involved with the local Star Wars & sci-fi community, and a staff member at Comic-Con (no - I won't get you tickets).
love one woman... many guitars
Welcome g60racer! I'm sure you will enjoy it here..! I used to live in Orange County, now in Seattle Wa. I'm actually writing because for the first time since I first posted this thread back in 06 I've come back to visit it. Tommys on there, Lutenient Dan, (whos still with us just not as much!) etc... whst a time capsule and a cool thread because a lot of us were just meeting not knowing 7 years later there would still be some of us here, and also where we were at the time. So many experiences here... so much knowledge learned! And of course some sadness reading Tommy's post. I'm glad a lot of you are still here active and thank you to the admins for your total investment and finally to all of the newer guys that keep this on the for front of decent guitar Forums and realizing the amazing guitars that were built in that kick ass decade and a half. This is still a family. Never lost that. Its amazing, it truly is. My dying wish will be the day I go, knowing the Forum is still going strong. That may sound a bit of a ridiculous thing to be thinking then but this place is a good place... Its the driving force working to keep that time of life still alive, the best years of my life.. So come one come all newcomers! Be humble, avoid brashness and share and LEARN.... Then the Forum will always be as it has been... k off the soapbox.. Nostalgia and all that...
