I'm not a new member, but I've been away for some years, so it feels right to re-introduce myself, as I'm sure things here will have moved on somewhat.
Last time I was around, I was completing a partscaster build, and had just bought a Gibson "The Paul", which was the guitar I played on an awful lot many, many years ago.
However, I slowly became more and more discontent with my lack of ability to make any headway, and my playing and attendance at the forum slowly tailed away.
Six months ago, I started playing violin, and am making decent progress. But a couple of weeks ago, I cam across a piece for violin that I used to play on guitar, and I wondered...
It seeks that playing violin has got my fingers moving again!
Many, many years ago, I played electric rock guitar for a while, then switched to classical, before stopping completely. When I was last on the forum, I was trying to get back into electric. This time, it's the classical revival. I've been plinking for a couple of weeks, and it feels ok. I'm not going to give up violin, and that will remain my primary instrument, at least for now (I'm paying for lessons, and don't want it to be a waste!), but I'll find a little time each day to practice guitar.
So, as I remember this being the friendliest guitar forum by a country mile, I thought I'd pop back in and say hello.
