Howdy from Boise - pronounced with an 'S' at the end, not a 'Z'. Known about TGP for some time, but haven't gotten around to signing up til now. Poking around a bit I recognize a few names from various forums I've haunted over the hears - shout out to the fellow AxeFX folks! I know, another one of them damn Fractal Heads. Let's see, got my first guitar at age 10 and have been at it for 43 years. Been an avid home and professional recording engineer for over 20 years and owned/ran a recording studio for several years. Been round the GAS block several times and still find things to GAS about on occasion - though I've finally arrived at both guitar and recording rigs I actually don't have to fight with any more. Haven't gigged live for some time but thinking of getting back into it now that the youngin's are nearing nest-leaving age. Aside from guitar and pro audio gear, I have a penchant (aka, weakness, obsession, addiction) for fine wines and good Scotch. TGP looks to be an interesting place full of interesting and colorful folks. Think I'll pull up a chair and have a drink.
