    How would YOU honestly rate your guitar abilities ?

    I'd say I'm a fairly competent player. I'm entirely "self-taught", which in my case means I know damned little. LOL I can entertain myself with my own playing some of the time, and some of the time I bore myself into a mild stupor. Wish I was better, but I guess I get the job done.

    How often do you gig/How many sets?

    My band gigs about an average of 3 times a month. Our gigs are usually 4 hours made up for 4 sets and three breaks. If the crowd is really into it, we'll keep playing and sometimes drop down to 3 sets.

    My run-in with Matt Schofield

    Agree 100% I got to meet Matt and the rest of his trio when my band played on the same bill with him last summer. They were all gracious and friendly guys, and it was a real pleasure meeting them and getting to see them play live.

    So here's a little game for ya ... what amp am I describing?

    I'm looking for an amp. Here are the specifics I'm thinking I'd like to have: Head rather than a combo Thick, rich clean tone with a non-flubby low end and smooth highs (not necessarily glassy high end) Low(er) wattage for my gigs in smallish clubs Takes OD pedals well Suited well to humbucker...

    Hi end Telecaster owners, like Custon shop, Nash K-line,Dano, and boutique

    I've got a K-Line Tele that's pretty much the best Tele I've ever owned. I especially like it because it was built to my own specs, like neck carve, frets, pickups, weight, etc.

    Do You Enjoy Talking to People at Gigs?

    I generally am the person in the band to schmooze with the crowd on breaks. I don't mind it, but I try to leave some time to sit and rest my old feet too. :-)
