My name is Todd, live in Hebron, CT with wife Michele of 20 years, and 2 daughters ages 15 and 19. (yes God help me).
I guess I don't consider myself a 'guitarist' yet as much as I am a student. Next month, it will be my 3rd year of taking lessons. At age 44 I am relatively late to the game but hey, never too old right?
My main guitar that I bought approx 2 years ago is a PRS (Grey) SE Torero which I love. I also have a Gretsch 5420T.
So with those 2 in hand, I sit in the corner of my bedroom with a Fender frontman Amp and work on my Natural C scales, my pentatonics in all 5 modes, throw in a few songs and it makes me happy. Not sure I am ready for prime time but I certainly enjoy learning and being awed and inspired by people who know how to play this thing. :-)
My other passion is motorcyles..I have a 2005 Honda ST1300 with which I have covered some serious ground on. (20 States, 3 Provinces and 108,000 miles as of this morning)
As far as music, Love love LOVE Rush! The complexity of the music just sweeps me away as well as we the skill at which they play..
Also eagerly awaiting Alter Bridge's new album (and hope American tour)...Love all hard rock, heavy metal..
Looking forward to the forum, learning and sharing.
