    Testing testing....one two, one two...

    Hello everyone. I am a 17 year old guy from Stockholm, the capital of Sweden. I'm not going to bore you too much with details, but here I am.

    I play what people would probably call indie music. Some sort of British pop/rock-thingy.

    I currently play a really nice Fender Lite Ash Telecaster. My amp is a Laney VC30 which is actually quite nice for the price (I could almost do hiphop with those rhyming skills). Just going to replace the speaker and get a fresh set of tubes in there.
    I only have two pedals at the moment. The first one is a Stereo Memory Man with Hazarai by EHX. A really nice delay pedal. I've also got a Rat2 which is going to be modded with a LM308N-chip (the original RAT-chip, arrived in the mail today) and a trimpot to be able to go from stock to ruetz-rat, and anything in between.

    Here's a pic for you:

    I'm going to fill that empty space, don't worry.

    Hi Johan!
    Welcome to TGP!
    It's cool to see a Swede on here (there aren't that many)!
    I'm going to Sweden this summer (among other places) to visit my friend who lives in Uppsala! He'll be taking me to Stockholm, and then down south, to Malmoe. I'm very excited. He's also a guitar player, and a VERY good one, too! I'm 18, and he's 20, so maybe it wouldn't be too far-fetched to get a jam going with you or something when I'm there.
    Anyways, wicked set-up. I've got a light ash strat, and dig it. Those pedals are cool too!

    Cheers (or should I say "Tja!"),

    Marko M.

    Välkommen Johan! Jag är Amerikan och är gift med en svenska och jag åker till Stockholm en gång om året. Det är en underbar stad. Jag hör av mig i sommar när vi skall dit igen. Varma hälsningar, AC

    Thanks all of you.

    Thanks, yeah that would be quite fun. I've only played for 3 years or so, but it's always fun to play with better players.

    Tack tack. Gör det, det vore kul.

    Hello and welcome Johanwastaken!
    What a wonderful town you live in. Way way way back in 1985 we played a gig on the stern end of the Blidösund steam ship that used to do a short blues cruise every Saturday from your town. [​IMG]

    It was lots of fun and it looks like they still do some sort of short day trip from it.

    Välkommen!

    You´ll like it here, but be prepared to buy new pedals every week.

    Thanks. Yeah, Stockholm is a nice city. I think they still do those trips.
