Hey guys.

I'll try not to take up too much of your time. I'm Danny, 18 years old from the UK. I'm currently studying Music Technology at the University of Huddersfield and im in my first year. The course delves into a lot of electronics behind audio equipment which i find pretty interesting and would love to be able to build my own amp.

Before moving to university i took A-levels at my secondary school which involved me building my own guitar (including my own neck) with salvaged wood from an old door frame. If you guys are interested i've still got a bucket load of pictures of the build and a sort of log-book for of the building stages that i'd be happy to share, however i wont go into it anymore for now. tongue.gif

Musically i began playing the drums at a young age and did so for a couple of years. However, due to downsizing house etc i wasn't able to continue. Roughly 2 years ago now i begun teaching myself the guitar. I've never had any lessons or intuition, however i receive help from time to time from 2 of my close friends who have around 6 years experience each. I've always found myself trying to compete with one of the two which has been my main source of motivation and progression, but unfortunately he's recently started to lose interest in playing and also will be moving away soon. Consequently i joined up to GMC last month to help keep me motivated and to learn as much as possible. I look forward to getting to know you all.

Music i find myself returning to:

Mr Big, Van Halen, Danger Danger, RHCP, Feeder, Stereophonics, Andy Timmons, Paul Gilbert.
