hey I know I've Posted a few Things here on the Forum, But I never got the Chance to introduce myself.

My name is Sam

I'm 18 years old,

I have been playing guitar For 5 years now.

When I first started playing I was really into Acoustic Classical-Folk style playing.

I played that style mainly for about 2 years,

Untill One night I was Flipping the Channels on TV, and I came across a PBS special, : Crossroads Guitar Festival.

And I watched this Video.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fmRBvX1mQBw

From that night On I instantly Became a Clapton Fan, And I changed my whole Playing style to Blues Rock.

And that was about 2 1/2 years ago.

Since then I went on to Learn as many CLapton/ SRV/ Hendrix/ Zeppelin songs, As I could get my hands on.

But After a while I came to GMC, Because now I want to start focusing on the More Techincal side of playing guitar.

I posted a clip of me playing,
(Please note, I recorded this a Long time Ago when I was 16, I got the Backing Track off the internet, and the quality sounds like Crap, I was Experimenting with Delay-didn't turn out so good- but It was the only thing I ever Recorded.) So listen if you want.

SO far everyone here in this community has been Cool.

GMC is turning out to be one of the Best in the Internet.

I hope I learn alot here.

"Fact is, nothing in the world bores me more than gear...If I played thru your rig, I would still sound like me. Van Halen would sound like Van Halen. Brian May...etc. Very early in my career I decided to focus on creating music and not being a guitar tech. Being a good guitar tech is a very different and extremely difficult job, so why not leave it to a pro?"
