Hey everyone. Finally joining, after lurking for a number of weeks. Wanted to say thanks to everyone here for sharing their huge knowledge and passion for Teles. This site is a big reason why I finally dove in and got a new Squier Affinity Tele. Also took my first lesson on Saturday. I'm a complete beginner. Thanks! My knowledge of Teles, other guitars, and playing in general pales in comparison with everyone's on here, so I don't expect to be posting a whole lot. But I'll be checking in every day to see what everyone is up to (and learning that GAS is a very real - and painful - affliction). I know this is cheesy, and prepare to roll your eyes, but I also thought I'd mention that I'm doing a blog chronicling my attempt to learn the guitar. I'd love it if anyone checked it out and let me know what they thought. Here it is: How I Learned Guitar. Let's hope I did that right. Cheers and keep on rockin'.
