I've enjoyed reading this page for about a year now and I never really got around to actually introducing myself...hi! I'm in Chicago (South Loop) but originally I'm from Portland, Maine. I'm a hobbyist but I played professionally for a while in my late teens and early 20s. I enjoy keeping up on new gear and I'm especially getting into home recording now. Anyway, I look forward to learning lots of new things on here. Cheers!
