Hi all, well it's been a long time since I was here last! Lots of new names and lots of people that I remember from before.
Personal circumstances and an Open University course meant that I have not even touched my guitar for over a year, how bad is that?

Any way the course is done and dusted (and passed!) and I was sitting watching the t.v the other day and my guitar (which sits by the side of it) just started calling me, and so once more I am about to embark on that wonderful and frustrating journey of learning to play.

To all of you here, may I take this opportunity to wish you all a very merry Christmas and a wonderful New Year, and thanks for letting me come back

The only thing that keeps me from realising my full potential is the depressing awareness that it wouldn't take much time or effort...

Merry Christmas Rik!
Just thought I'd say congrads on the course & yeah keep that guitar out where it just stares at you! That's how I get any practice, I need one plugged in here and ready to go after a short tube warm up. Don't be getting frustrated either! Just have fun, that's what keeps you playing. Even if you think you should give it up, Don't !!! that's how I keep going anyway. :D

Welcome back Rik. You can't beat a bit of studying and now it's time to study guitar.

VERY bad indeed! Still, you made it back and that's the main thing - welcome back, Rik!

Don't sweat the "lost" year...because if you've learned something then it's a "gain"...so long as it makes you play a-chordingly!
