    There's a joke about that, right?

    I played solo acoustic in my teens and twenties, but was scared to death of performing, so eventually I sold all my guitars and moved on to other things. A couple years ago I got the bug again, thought I'd try electric this time, so ended up with a PRS SE 24, a Roland BCS, and already too many pedals. No longer bothered by performing, as I've been playing in various percussion ensembles for over twenty years now, though definitely not ready to play guitar in public yet. Hopefully, someday...

    I'll try to get one up. Haven't really begun to explore the forum software yet.

    Open an Imgur account, and send the photo there.
    Shrink the Imgur window to half screen size.
    Open TGP in a window beside the Imgur window.
    In TGP, do Reply or Start Thread.
    Drag and drop the picture, from Imgur to TGP.
    If you want, log off Imgur, and close its window.
    Resize the TGP window,
    etc, etc, etc.

    Welcome.

    The first rule of TGP is you can never have too many pedals.

    Hi, @Rob-bob!
    Greetings from Norway!

    Enjoy your journey from too many pedals to too many guitars and eventually too many amps - TGP will be here for support and encouragement!

    On TGP, we call that, "almost enough pedals". You're definitely in the right place.

    Thanks all. Keeping peace with my spouse is going to keep my gear lust in check. Which is really not a bad thing...
