Hello all, newbie on here. Been playing bass for 25 years, switched to guitar last December and loving it. Play in a band called Retaliator and gig quite a lot in the UK and Europe. I play mainly Charvel's, Gibsons (SGs and Flying V) as well as an ESP/LTD EX400-BD and a Burny Les Paul through a Peavey 5150 2x12 Combo.
Main influences on the guitar are Tony Iommi, Zakk Wylde, Jeff Beck, Eddie van Halen etc.
Music I like to listen to varies, punk and metal mainly, bands such as Black Sabbath, Cocksparrer, The Business, Killswitch Engage (the earlier stuff), Rancid, Iron Maiden, Stiff Little Fingers, SHAM 69 etc...
