Hi there,

I`ve been a member of GMC now for a few weeks and sitting here at work bored as hell thought I`d introduce myself.

My names Chris and I`m from Sittingbourne, Kent in the UK, I`m 37 years old married for 2 years now and have a beautiful 1 year old daughter called Stephanie.

I started off playing the drums at age 12 and played for just over 3 years when my parents moved to a neighbourhood that didnt appreciate my drum practice sessions in the garage mad.gif laugh.gif after many complaints I gave up and picked up the guitar! now some 20 years on I`m still playing, I`ve never considered myself neither a poor player and certainly not a great player, I fortunatly have always picked up things fairly quickly and much to my wifes disapproval can sit for hours upon hours playing the same piece over and over and over again.

I`m mainly into Heavy rock, Judas priest, Maiden, Ozzy etc but really anything, if I like it I like it smile.gif

I have four guitars, an Ibanez ergodyne (several years old now), a Jackson Pile of bones (unfortunatly not the USA model), a Fender Strat (Mexican) Buddy guy sig model (seems to be my weapon of choice at the moment) changed the bridge pickup for a hotrails humbucker, and an OLP MM1 (cheap as chips but plays fantastic!)

I only use stomp boxes for effects, I`ve tried various modelling gear and just not got on with it, I like to keep things nice n simple, a lot less to go wrong IMO, 4 stomp boxes, Behringer UM300, Behringer Chorus, Behringer Multi FX and a Boss EQ.

I use a Crate 150watt Power block head and run it through a Behringer 4x12" cab.

For recording I use a Boss BR8 digital 8 track, bit old now but does what I need.

Currently in a band and play a mixture of covers and originals, some I`ll post at some point.

I`ve joined GMC to improve and learn new techniques and skills, I have a strong desire and passion for playing and am enjoying the 2 or 3 lessons that I`m working on at the moment, the Muris lessons are a great challenge! smile.gif

Sorry for going on, I did say I was bored

all the best and good luck everyone

Being a good guitar tech is a very different and extremely difficult job, so why not leave it to a pro?"

M8!! if I have to sit through another episode of the Backyardigans I`ll go mad blink.gif

shes fascinated when I`m playing so hopefully later on!

I`ve had to buy a real cheap guitar (that I dont play) just sits on a stand for her to bash and pull about!, I`ve cried too many tears the amount of times I`ve seen my Jackson and fender go crashing to the ground sad.gif

thanks Tony, its a good job she takes after her father in the looks department .... w8 till I get me hands on him! laugh.gif laugh.gif

well, thought I`d revive my original intro thread (I pinched the idea from Mr Cockburn)

Its 2 years since I joined GMC


ohmy.gif where has the time gone???

so I`m still here, made some great friends along the way and somehow I dont think I`ll ever be leaving GMC!! wub.gif

So thank you Kris for putting together such a fantastic site, and making me part of some of the infrastructure, 2 years ago I never thought I would be able to contribute to what was already a fantastic site!

thanks to everyone for putting up with me for the last two years (especially Andrew putting up with me on skype smile.gif ) biggrin.gif

heres to many more smile.gif
