Hi everyone
Newbie here from NJ. Was browsing around and I liked this site. I currently left my band after several years. Kind of taking a step back and figuring out what I really want to do. Southern Rock seems too be appealing to me right now. Our band usually played popular covers from 70's, 80's, 90's and now.
Went into a funk for a couple of months and didn't pick up a guitar. Now I'm getting rejuvenated and looking around, and like I said, taking a step back and starting from scratch. :)

Hey, a fellow Jersey-man. I'm from South Jersey, I think your about an hour and a half from here.

You can check out the beginner guide, if you've been playin for a few years (even with the break) you might be well past it, but give it a gander anyhoo : www.guitartricks.com/guide.php

Thanks. I've been playing about 11 years. A lot on my own until I joined a band about 3 1/2 years ago. Played a lot of clubs here on the shore. I've been searching around the board, but I only found it in the last hour, so I'll keep looking around. Not sure where you are, but my daughter goes to Stockton down there in S Jersey and I'm usually going to Ocean City to relax. :D

Stockton isn't round here though, I live in Glouster County, I'm not even sure where that college is. Rowan is like 5 minutes from here though. As far as Ocean City, I haven't been there (Only Atlantic City n Wildwood) I hear theres no bars, so I geuss less drunk people would help the relaxation process haha.

If you've been playin for 11 years, I wouldn't bother with the guide. I would recommened tryin out the Full Acess for a month.

There's a liquor store across the bridge, so once in a while, I'll grab a six of Coronas and head to the beach. Great little place :D

Yep, welcome to the site from another frequent beach bum! :cool:
It's become the main online hangout for alot of us. And I'd agree that you should try the full access subscription. There isn't a single teacher in the world that could cover all the styles and techniques covered by the numerous instructors here...not counting everyone else around here and their experience.
