    Hello,

    My name is Colin. ("Hi Colin.") I'm a gearaholic.

    Ok well not really! I live in San Mateo, CA, a metropolis outside of San Francisco. I've been playing all sorts of music for years, starting at 12 with the clarinet, picking up tenor sax at 13, and guitar at 14, I'm now 26 and you would never know I'd been playing for so long. I've played on an off over the years, but lately have been really into it, practicing new stuff all the time and actually seeing some of my discipline paying off.

    I love all kinds of music and actively write electronic music on my own, but I also love guitarists like Jimi Hendrix, Neil Young, Prince, and probably a few other weirdos as well. I play a Fender 72 Thinline Tele and a Martin D-28 and I have a project Strat waiting for a new neck.

    Anyway, I'm looking forward to contributing here!

    Best,
    Colin

    Thanks guys,

    @Kenneth, I love San Mateo, I'm convinced it's one of the best places around (though I'm heavily biased).

    Welcome from downtown SF. I used to work in San Mateo. Loved grabbing fresh pasta from Ravioli House.
