Hello everyone!

I'm really sorry for not being around for a while guys. I've had some unfortunate things happening in my life which basically made me loose all inspiration and motivation to play guitar. That's funny because the guitar has always helped me before when life's been hard... but it didn't work this time.

I'm one experience richer now though and what I've learned from all this is that we can't take anything for granted in life. Some things are just out of our control and we have to do the best we can, even though it won't be as good as we wanted.

I've missed you all, and I really appreciate the support from all of you who I've had contact with during this time.

I've bought a couple of new beautiful guitars and the inspiration has definitely started to come back now. Maybe I'm not 100% recovered yet though, but I'm ready to start working here again.... and I'm really looking forward to it smile.gif

I'll get busy answering all my PM's now! smile.gif
