I finally got over to the forum - mostly for one purpose. Hey I just noticed that I'm been with GT since 2009 - whoa!!! Actually that could be a little depressing, given my current skill level. I keep reminding myself about the journey.

Oh yea! - my purpose. Like most everyone else, I want to spread some thanks to all the teachers. They are something. We all know they aren't buying Maseratis, snorting snow, and zooming around with a blonde bimbo or bimba (as the case may be). IOW, 90 percent of the reason they take their tremendous skills and spread them among us duffers is not the cash!!! And I thank you. For me Anders has provided so much to me, it brings tears to my eyes. Everyone else is fabulous, but for me, he's the one. Anders, I hope you have better things to do, but if you stumble across this missive some time - thank you man. Like, over the top! If your truck won't start, your chick scrammed, the bologna's eat by date is way past, I want you to still know that you have made, and continue to make, a huge difference in the small life of a struggling blues guitar player - in the heart of North Carolina.

Hi there... and welcome!

I too started in 2009. In fact, your post is pretty close to my join date which was a birthday present to myself.

Between my week long birthday bacchanal and return from my traditional October week in Yellowstone I missed your post.

Yup... that's my story and sticking to it.

GT is fun isn't it.
