Topic starter

Joined a while ago but only just got around to posting. I have found "Guitar Noise" an invaluable tool in the 5 years I've been learning guitar, so many many thanks to all you guys/girls who are responsible for an amazing site & resource.

I'm a lefty! I live near a small market town called Romsey, in Hampshire in the UK. After a brief flirtation with a classical guitar when I was 16, I finally got properly started aged 47, nearly 5 years ago. Went straight into Acoustic guitar & started by learning many of my favourite tunes by Eagles, Beatles, Pink Floyd etc, initially just strumming, then fingerstyle.

Then I went to a guitar camp (Steve Kaufman's) & got hooked on flatpicking & Bluegrass, which is mainly what I play these days. Found an excellent Bluegrass jam locally & continue to cross the pond every June to attend Kaufman's Kamp.

My 3 acoustic guitars are, in order of preference (although this order changes regularly!), 2005 Gibson J-45, 2008 Martin HD-28, 2007 Moon RD-3 Custom. I also own a 2008 Fender American Telecaster, but this doesn't get much attention.

Thanks for your attention.

Another UK guy? It's like the British invasion, again!

You're all getting to be popular here. Welcome and hoist a Guinness. :wink:
