I just joined this forum since the BRB (Big Road Blues) forum went down a few days ago (BTW if anyone knows whats goin on with that, I'd like to know). I've been teachin myself guitar for the past 2 n' a half years or so. I feel a bit more natural on electric (since thats what I learned on), but I've been playing a lot of acoustic in the past few months ( I just got a decent acoustic guitar a few moneths ago). I love acoustic slide guitar, and have been doin a bit of dabbling on the harp lately (harmonica)....(i dont mean to insult anyone, but you can never be too careful). I mainly listen to blues, classic rock, and folk music...(and i guess I've always had a thing for psychadelic rock and funk guitar).
For those who are equipment freaks (I know there gotta be some here)... I use the following: Fender American Deluxe Tele, Ibanez AS-37 Artcore, Squier Affinity Series Strat, Taylor BigBaby acoustic, Johnson 996 Tricone, Fender HotRod DeVille (4x10), Marshall DFX Combo (cant remember the model # right now), Fender Frontman 15G, and last but not least... Hohner Special 20 harps (haha, what else?).
Most importantly: I think music should come from the heart, though it often makes its way through your mind. You can spend a lifetime trying to deny your feelings and thoughts, but time worth-while is acknowledging the torrents inside of you and workin on them.
...And now that I got that outa the way, I wish you all a belated Happy New Year. I don't think the change of the year is a big deal (kinda like celebrating the fact that today is Friday), but change is important and I hope everyone's "new year" goes well. You can't change the past-- you can learn from it though, and what you do today and tomorrow is what matters.
