So after a long time of talking about it, and planning for it, I'm leaving my job behind for a couple of years to focus on playing the guitar.
I've been a member here (mainly lurking in the darkness) for a long time, so I thought I'd post about what I'm up to, as I haven't yet spoken here much.
I have until now worked as an audio programmer in the video game industry, but decided to take some time out to concentrate on my own games projects and, most importantly, playing the guitar.
I still have some games work to finish on my own projects (I intend to release some of my own games, too! - you can read about my latest game project here), but I'm generally going to be spending around 10 hours a day, 5 days a week playing guitar for a good portion of the 2 years I have planned for. Well, if my mental state and/or hands don't give out! It's mainly an experiment to see 1) whether I can handle it over a long period of time, and 2) if it has any positive impact on my skills as a musician.
I have a blog at www.6stringsand16bits.com if you'd like to follow my activities. It's a bit bare at the moment, but I intend to fill the currently empty pages with posts about my video game and guitar related goings-on.
Any thoughts/ideas/comments/suggestions are welcomed!

I decided to start up a blog about making video games and playing guitar, which obviously have little to no overlap, but if you're interested you can check it out at http://www.6stringsand16bits.com
I just posted my first video on there - a play through of Pride and Joy by SRV, feedback is really appreciated!

I've been playing in this covers band for a while now, and the other guitarist made some recordings on his handheld Zoom H2N at one of our gigs, I thought I'd share it!
I think overall the recordings not too bad considering it was just a portable recorder that was used.
The solos are improvised, so they get a bit ropey at times. I thought it was a really bad gig when we played it, but a week later when I got around to listening to the recording I'd forgotten where all the mistakes where so the playing sounds better than I remember it doing!

I'm visiting San Francisco in another week or so, just wondering if anyone here is a local and knows of any really good guitar shops in the city that are worth checking out?
It's my first visit to the US of A, I've been told before that guitar shops over there are a lot bigger and more awesome than the ones we typically have in the UK, so I'm looking forward to taking a look.
