Found your site while browsing through Google and thought I would visit, say hello and hopefully hang my hat.

Play a little guitar mostly a Godin LG Hum with some over wound humbuckers since getting it my American Strat has taken a back seat and I am currently having a 1987 Epiphone Sheraton fitted with all new hardware including some Gibson 57 Classic Humbuckers.

Bit long for a hello but I hope there's room around here for an old boy and I look forward to getting to know you all in the future.

Plenty of room for you. Great to have another person from Spain. Has the tomato festival started ? :wink:

You have pretty nice guitars over there. Enjoy the stay.

Welcome to GN, Gerry! Hang your hat on the homepage and come on in.

I listened to some of the music on your website - doesn't sound like you need many lessons to me! Very moody and atmospheric!

:D :D :D

Welcome to GN, Gerry.

I used to know La Linea quite well. I lived in Gibraltar for a while. Is Jimmy's Tapas Bar still going?

Look forward to seeing you round the forums.

It was them that turned me to drink.

Well many thanks for the warm welcome much a appreciated.

As to guitar lessons the fact is I have never had any and I'll be the first to admit that they would not go amiss. A few finger exercises to keep the old fingers moving and although its hard old dogs can learn new tricks.

Jimmy's Bar is still there Chukster but the changes around here have been fantastic over the last 10 years. I have been living down here for almost 22 years so we might have bumped into each other without knowing.

Glad to see Spain now has two Flags as it has more great guitarists per meter than most places in the world. I'm not one of them although I try :roll:

Sorry for not replying to all by name but only the last two posts show on the reply page. Look forward to getting to know everyone in the future and once again thank you.

welcome!

I am currently playing an 80's epi sheraton and LOVE it. I bought it from Buffalo bros in California (1st internet purchase...but great experience) I hap replacement buckers picked out, but to my surprise it was perfect. I love this guitar.

How can you tell the stage is level?

The drummer drools from both sides of his mouth!
