    After posting a few things here and there, I figured that I should introduce myself. I was a finger-picking acoustic singer/songwriter (think more Leonard Cohen and Nick Cave, less sandals and loop station- not that there's anything wrong with that!) and then I met a guy who had a band and needed a guitarist. I had some gear leftover from my teenage years (when I was obsessed with Cream and Pink Floyd), so I said, 'Sure, I'll fill in 'til ya find someone else.' That was about seven years ago. Now, much to my surprise (and my mother's disbelief), I pay the rent with my guitar. Though much of what I do is cover band work, or as I like to call it, Rockin' for Dollars, I stay pretty busy with original music too. I found this place awhile back and I really dig it! I spend way too much time reading threads here! Good ol' guitar porn. . . .

    Killermeteor, welcome to the forum with unlimited opionions, all correct of course, and where delusional ex and future rock stars share wisdom beyond their experience!
    A wonderful place to be!

    "Now, much to my surprise (and my mother's disbelief), I pay the rent with my guitar."
