Hello my name is Pat. I have been playing the guitar for over 25years. Started as a drummer in a band as a kid playing rock music of the 70s and 80s. During that time i started picking up our guitarist guitar and started messing around. Well then i just kept going. I played mostly Rush, SRV, and Led Zep for a long while. I am self taught playing by ear and tabs. Picked up alot of bad habits.....but hey i was still having fun. I used to play approx2 hrs a day. Then i got married and started a family and my playing went on the back burner..still played but not too much. Now divorced and more time on my hands i came across this site. I was very skeptical in the beginning but stuck it out. I have to say this site has really turned on my love for playing the guitar again. Specifically acoustic. I rarely touch my strat anymore. I am truly inspired and am glad i stuck it out. I am now learning more theory and my playing has improved tremendously. This is the best guitar investment i have made to date.
