I've been dipping into this forum for a while, but only just joined. My good friend davmac is a regular here. We met over on the Six String Bliss forum and have met up IRL a couple of times now. I've been playing the guitar for a few decades now, but have done very little in the way of bands or performance. Mostly been a bedroom player. Started on classical as a kid, then went electric as a student. Have not owned huge amounts of gear. Currently have a Gordon Smith GS2 electric, a Dean Performer E electro-acoustic and a Roland Cube 80x amp. Not got many effects. I've been playing a lot more over the last few years, partly inspired by 6SB. I joined a rock covers band a couple of years back and we rehearsed for a while, then split before doing a gig. Then I started doing an acoustic pub session where I got into doing some singing. I've been experimenting with recording. Got a few tracks on http://soundcloud.com/steevc Latest effort was this mass collaboration with davmac and others from 6SB where I did lead vocals http://soundcloud.com/bookerjwood/comfortably-dumb-hey-you I record with a Zoom H4, either standalone or plugged into my Linux PC. Still learning how to get the best out of what I have. If anyone here is in the area I'm up for jamming or other sorts of collaboration. I've not got the time for serious gigging, but the occasional gig could be fun. I know there is a lack of Tele content above. I do want to get one some time. I'm considering having one made when I have the cash.
