    Hi all. Thanks for adding me to the group. I'm a former acoustic guitar/finger style player, but haven't played at all for 15 plus years. I recently got the bug to start playing again and purchased an American Professional Telecaster. I've decided to learn to play some blues this time around. It's a struggle to start again after all this time, but I'm really enjoying it. Love my new Tele. I also recently purchased a used Fender Blues Deluxe.
    I put all new tubes in it including a 12AY7 in V1 , per recommendations I read here on this forum. I'm strictly a home player just as a hobby for my own enjoyment.
    Thanks again!!

    Welcome! You've got a nice guitar-amp pairing. Toning down V1 with a lower-power tube is a good idea, in my opinion. I do it almost all the time. Most of us learn a lot on this forum, regardless of levels of experience.

    Welcome. I'm new here too. You have a great guitar and amp. If you like tele playing- give Danny Gatton a listen. Not that a beginner can do what he did-yet his tone and approach is inspiring. So many good tele players out there to listen to. Have fun. I play for my cat!
