Re: OLD New Player

Great to see you - and your post made me think. I am struggling to get myself going again as a 48 year old serial returner and it was quite inspirational! Welcome to GN, a great forum, have met some great people (both in reality and online) on here.

Re: Am I guitarist?

Ive been having this problem all my life. Started playing as a teenager, got reasonably ok, stopped in 20's (marriage/kids/work/divorce/depression/marriage#2/more kids/more work/divorce#2-you get the idea). I started 'playing' again aged 40, 8 years ago and have been on a plateau all that time. I lo...

Ben Lapps?

Has anyone seen this young man play live? for the UK forumites, he is the player on the 'Wonga' ad but is far more than that. Plays an acoustic with heavy hammer on, two hand tapping and percussion, like crossing a chapman stick with a bongo. Amazing - observe http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GRIc9gba...

Re: Blackstar amps

Cannot recommend it enough. Loads of demo videos on youtube. Our resident pro guitarist at work has one of their 'full size' amps (amongst many others) and loves it. Best little amp I've ever had.

Slow start

So - I return to the forum and guitar. Forgot so much, fingers not going where I want them to, so far I have been sat for an hour tonight stumbling through some scales on the guitalele while watching TV. Might not be much but I'm making a start........

Re: Blackstar amps

I have the Blackstar HT1 (they also do a HT1R with reverb). I love it - no frills, solid build, looks and feels 'quality', dead easy to use - the ISP tone control goes from 'Brit' at one extreme to 'American' at the other, I usually live in the middle. Very loud for it's size yet very precise and ar...

Re: Just thought I'd check in....

Darth, we have GOT to jam soon.....right? :-) :) :) Vic I think that could happen, Vic..... Just had the old GS out of its case and plugged into the little blackstar. They still make a great noise together....though it was more noise than music, tried a bit of foo fighters (everlong/best of you), G...
