Hi guys I've just bought my first Gibson Les Paul, so thought I would join you good folks here and say hi! I'm a self-taught (by Youtube ) 25 year old bedroom guitar player who plays guitar as a hobby. My main influences are Led Zeppelin, Dire Straits, Bon Jovi, Fleetwood Mac, and Eric Clapton. This might be a cliche, but from the first time I heard Stairway to Heaven, probably when I was 11 years old I'm certain that I just have to pick up the guitar. Over the years I've been playing Epiphones and Squires as I kept thinking to myself I don't deserve the 'nice' ones. But now, I've thrown logic out of the window and decided to enjoy life even more!
