Hi there!

Thanks for having such a great website! I've been using it for some time, but now i've also registered to the forum. I've been playing guitar for 10 years now, but progress has been slow on me, in my opinion. My hopes here are to develop as a guitarist.

I actually work as a guitar-, and band-teacher myself at an organisation called Studiefrämjandet(means The Study association or something.. hard to translate). There I help kids to fulfill their dreams, develop as musicians or just let them have fun with music. They're awesome!

Mostly I play punk/rock/pop when I play guitar. I've had a couple of bands since I started out, but right now I'm on my own. I'm looking for a band, but I'm not quite sure what I want to do...

I guess my favourite guitarists would be John Frusciante, Dave Gilmour, Mark Knopfler, Andreas Nilsson(Silverbullit), Mike Ness(Social Distortion), Anders Göthberg(Broder Daniel) among others, but I listen to most kinds of music.

I have five guitars:

A torched Vester Stratocaster named "Crispie"(with burnmarks all over the guitar), a Hagström Swede named "Sugar", a cheap Cort guitar(my first electric guitar) which had to be named Cortney, and two acoustic guitars which I haven't named yet.

Well.. hope to hear from ya'll and yeah.. keep practicing...

A friend of mine have names for all his 11 guitars and he named Crispie so I had to start naming the rest of them. I have a hard time figuring out what to call my acoustic guitars though. It must be a fitting name. But it's fun refering to a guitar as "Sugar" instead of "my white Haström Swede".


And thanks everyone!
