    Hey, just thought I'd introduce myself here. I've been a member on a few other guitar forums and thought I'd drop by and see what I could learn and contribute here. Im 17 and have been playing electric guitar for 6 years but only seriously for 4. I love pretty much anything and everything rockin! Big on 70s and 80s stuff(van halen, ac/dc, guns n roses, Skynyrd, Ozzy, etc) but also love me some blues ala SRV and heavier stuff like metallica and megadeth. I also am not afraid to admit I like some jazz(larry carlton) and alot of country:cool:. As of right now I am runnin either my schecter blackjack or fender MIM strat into my brand new crate V3112T(GREAT amp btw). The schecter was my first real guitar and I love the thing but man am I startin to dislike the brightness of the JB pickup lol. The strat was actually a recent addition I bought used and it came with pickups from a 60's RI strat that I find very sweet sounding. All I did to it since purchase was throw on some gold hardware. I've bought and sold quite a few pedals in my short time but I am pretty set on my current pedalboard. I am runnin into a tuner then a dunlop 95q wah then into a CMATmods tubeslammer. In the loop I have an EH small clone and EH #1 echo. Only thing I wanna change is possibly trade the tubeslammer cus it just doesn't quite fit my crate aswell as my last amp(carvin mts). Pictures of my gear can be found in my sig.

    So anyways...I'm really lookin forward to learnin some new things here :D


    Ahh also something worth mentioning...I have takin a strong interest in sound recording and I actually plan on going to college and getting a degree in Music Tech from Capital University!

    Welcome from a fellow Buckeye!

    I'm originally from Medina. Been to Massillon a few times. I lived (and played) in NE Ohio for 23 years before heading to Southern California in '83. Northeast Ohio is rockin' (at least it used to be)! Many a great guitarist in those parts. My brother, Jamie Gregoire, stills plays out in the Medina / Akron / Cleveland area on occasion.

    TGP is a cool place to hang. Enjoy yourself.

    Regards,
    Tim Gregoire
