I have to say this is the most awesome place to be and there are so many helpful and cool people here and I can't think of one person I dislike (yet :p ) I am not going to start naming names yet because they are so many and I don't want anyone to feel left out. Maybe if I can compile a list I will post it but thanks to everyone for all the good times and help I have gotten. I know I don't help much but I sure have gotten a lot of help, I better quit now, I feel my eyes watering :D .
The greatest enemy to what you can know, is what you already know.

It's not how good you play, its how well you play it.

what I find strange is how much I trust all you guys...If Playa tells me a certain tube will get me what I am looking for...I run straight down the store, and put them in my amp...If Lats gives me his approval on any gear, I have way fewer reservations...if Pony gives me advice on any topic (especially non-musical...dunno how man, but you seem to have become the Gt life guru) I will almost certainly take and use it...
weird how much trust I have in dudes I have never met...

The only guy a dont trust is Cryptic...If Cryptic ever tells me about a girlfriend again...I will definately not believe him...not again

Would you believe me if I told you I had a girlfriend now? Because I actually do. Don't believe me, I'm still the same liar I was before.

I'd like to thank Magicninja and Jolly McJollyson for helping me to break out of metal mode. No more power chords for me! :)

Plus anyone else who has ever helped me out, posted something interesting, or put up with one of my rants - ie. most of you. GT rocks!

wtf? they turned you off metal? now that's just wrong! give me some time, and I'll turn you back on to it.. but, there's alot more to metal then power chords. and tuning to anything below Db is over-kill.

Thanks for the shout out bro! and you were close with the spelling. haha. I'm glad someone appreciates my insight!! I thought I was just rambling! haha.

Thanks to all on the boards, like some others have said... you can't really single out any one person. Everyone has their own niche on the forums and does there part... whether it be technical support, musical thoery, general forum caretakers, or comedic relief... everyone does their thing. Thanks to all.

Thanks for the kind words everybody! This whole community means a lot to me. I've made a lot of great friends over the years, and met some really awsome people. It's very rare to find a community such as ours (online or in the real world) where everybody alway's pulls together to lend a helping hand when someone is in need. I want to thank everybody for their contributions to this site, and for alway's helping me out.

Man, GT is getting really warm and fuzzy around here. I'd like to thank PRS for helping me get acclimated to life as a Southerner and the kickass bar-b-que we had in August.

I'd like to thank Pantallica for all those songs we did and all the laughs back when we had the chat room on IRC.

Doc and LATS for being the mature voice of reason on a site filled up with young whippersnappers.

Jolly for all his craziness and uniqueness. Oh yea, and for sending me that awesome Teddy Bear Picnic song. I'm hooooked.

I'm sure I'm forgettin' a few, so cheers to everyone. Maybe someday we'll get that convention together. :D
