Hi, My name is Chris. I am a new member on this site and it is well worth it. I started playing electric and acoustic in 96. Mainly self taught due to location. I live in Qld Australia. Influences-Tommy Emmanuel's heartmelting chord progressions and facemelting lead breaks have been a big influence, Ry Cooder, Arlen Roth, Danny Gatton, Satch, also One of my uncles plays as well, you can check him out here:

I am here to fill in a few gaps in my theory and improve my playing style/versatility. After going through the site, it looks like Muris will be added to my influences list also wink.gif

Thanks for the welcome Ben!

Great! I've seen Phil emmanuel play a few times and it was flawless. I am in the Toowoomba area. Joining this site will definately pay off.
