gg7 04-14-2004 10:43 PM

i'll answer some of these too i guess :)

name: jeremy

years playing: hard to answer. got my first guitar roughly 9 years ago. didn't get serious about it til later on though, took a foray into the world of electric 4 string bass for about a year playing it almost exclusively. also experimented with other instruments along the way. right now it's acoustic guitar the vast majority of the time.

guitar: my main one right now is my rainsong parlor.

can i play and sing? yes, but that doesn't mean i'm great at it ;)

gauge of strings: acoustic light

picks: medium to thin-medium

style: folk, folk-rock, acoustic-driven, folk mixed in with other stuff...

thud 04-15-2004 05:08 AM

Throw me in with gchord and the guy who wouldn't say his age.

thud - the sound of something falling
age - 43
years playing - 31 but still just learning
favorite guitars to play - son's B.C. Rich, daughter's Ovation
only guitar you youngsters would think is cool - '83 Gibson Flying V
strings - played em all - will play more
picks - " " " "
style - no longer important
looks - " " " "
musical philosophy - music's greatest innovators weren't good enough players to learn anybody elses stuff - they played from their hearts and identified with their audience.

I have the distinction of owning the loudest guitar amp of anybody here. It's an old 100W Carvin tube half-stack. When I was in a metal band I only had to turn it up to 1.5 to be heard over a Tama mahogany double kick drum kit. On 2 it causes injury!

Biggest Influence:I don't know lol. I never really listened to anyone and really used anything they did in my playing, so I guess I don't really have any. My biggest inspiration is probably the dude from anberlin, they rock out.
