NEW GUY ALERT!

Post by deltabluesrookie » Sat Jan 29, 2011 7:49 pm

Hi Everyone. Wow what a webisite and forum!!!!

Tom's the name. 41 years old, two brats and a wife. Picked up the guitar about a year ago. Used to play when I was young and thought I was gonna be a rock star. but I was lousy lol. But I always loved and still love blues.

Guys for the past year or so, I cannot stop listening to EC and his blues stuff. I try to play it on my guitar all the time when the kids and wife give me time. Love it so much. I am so excited about this site. wow. :music2:

When I was young i tried to appreciate and listen to Robert Johnson but my young horny ears just wouldnt let me. Now I cant get enough of the delta stuff. And now that I discovered EC's stuff WOW!!! Cant stop listening to the stuff. :pray:

I have an Ibanez artwood OOO body. Solid top. Sounds pretty good for a hacker like me. Been really trying my best at fingerpickin. Stopped using a pick about six months ago.

Look forward to meeting some new friends here.

:welcome: to the forum Tom.

That's quite a familiar story about coming back to the guitar too.

If you want to learn and get help with the blues I can't think of a better forum to be on.

And I'm glad I'm not the only one that didn't "get" the blues at a younger age. Wish I had - too many "lost" years to catch up on. :roll:

Enjoy it here. :big_smile:
