I actually lurked in Amp Central Station exclusively for about a year before I even realized there was anything else to check out. yesh, I am an idiot. once I saw what was happening around these parts I signed up and have been offering all of y'all my crackpot theories and feeble attempts at humor ever since! (thanks, you've been a great crowd.. I'm here all week - be sure to try the prime rib!!) there's a ton of knowlege available right here in one place at the touch of a key and some incredibly talented folks who make some guitars so purdy a man could set right down and cry.. plus a real, sincere feeling of community as well. I love finding common ground with folks all over the world about stuff like Jimmie Vaughan Strats, Blues Juniors or whatever! I like that there are plenty differing opinions represented as well as a gathering of people of every age, race, sex, and/or belief system; who can all get together to marvel at how Mister Leo Fender hit one right outta the park his first time at bat! it's little things like this that give me hope sometimes, ya know? MandyMarie's digital love story has touched my blackened little heart as I'd met my own true love on ferschlugginer MySpace, of all the strange places!
