I guess I've finally arrived

Post by Boonezai » March 8th, 2006, 9:49 am

Wow, 30+ years of struggling with the guitar and finally someone will have heard of me.

My name is Boone and I have been jammin in and out of bands since the late 70's.
Over the past few years I have traded my jammin time for family life and farming which means that I am more of a guitar owner rather than player. Along with country living I have developed a love for Blue Grass and while my guitars are collecting dust, I am teaching myself the banjo, dulcimer, mandolin, etc. (I even named my daughter Amanda Lynn)

Smokindog has made it his mission in life to drop by once a month to dust off my guitars and compel me to devote an entire day to some of the coolest jam sessions I've experienced in a long time. Thanx Ken!

I'm looking forward to getting to know some of you old rockers and new rockers alike. Not to mention you Blue Grass enthusiest who can teach me a thing or two.

God bless and keep on Rockin'

Welcome, Boonezai! Always nice to meet friends of friends! I'm an old rocker, too, but find myself playing mostly blues lately. I got a mandolin for Christmas last year (but the guitar is still my instrument of choice),and have been getting into a little bluegrass myself (and gospel and country.....). Maybe we can help each other along! Nicetameetcha!

Check out Doyle Dukes if you wanna see some sick bluegrass. Hes considered one of the best acoustic players in the world, ive never heard anything like it. Hes a showcase for taylor guitars so I guess its to be expected haha.
