    Hey everybody.

    The title is self explanatory. I'm new to the forum. Looking forward to learning and sharing knowledge with you guys.

    A little about me, I live in Halifax, Canada. I just graduated from StFX University with A Bachelor of Music in Jazz Studies. That was about 6 weeks ago. So do I have a job? Nope. Super unemployed. Oh the lifestyle of a musician. Oh well. I'm getting by at least and I've got a positive attitude so I'm not worried. I've taken quite an interest in fingerstyle acoustic playing which led me here. Artists like Mike Dawes, Jon Gomm, Kelly Valleau, Peter Gergely, Don Ross, etc I find very appealing.

    I'd like to hear some of your guys stories too. Anyways cheers everbody!

    Welcome to the madness!! A Bachelor's Degree in Jazz Studies sounds pretty cool. I'll bet it was fun and interesting working towards it. I played the Tenor Sax in the high school and junior college jazz bands and had a blast. Never finished college though. I think it would have been fun taking classes learning about jazz instead of just playing it. I would have especially loved studying the history. Good for you. I hope you find a good job in your field.

    Big Money eh?
    I am a Nigerian prince who has an inheritance of 50,000,000 USD that's been expropriated by the newly elected radical government here. All I need is 10,000 USD to pay my good, really good, lawyers so I can recover my funds and give you a handsome return on your investment. Jazz studies eh? I'm sure there's something we can improvise but first I need some seed capital for a Telecaster, you see, the unelected rabble in my country have confiscated all the tube amps... :rolleyes:

    Welcome!

    I hope you have enough resources, to just go roaming around now that the weather is great up North, and see what connections you can make. There aren't the opportunities in making money in music there once were, but if your skill set is unusual and good, you might pick up some contacts that could help you make progress.

    Enjoy!
