    New user here.

    I've been lurking around this place for a while now. Decided to sign up. Looks like this is a great forum for discussing guitars.

    Been playing on and off for about 16 years.

    Welcome to the Circus. Great guys and one great gal; maybe two soon if we haven't scared her away.

    Anyway there is a ton of good info from a lot of experience players as well as no end to
    opinions on the eternal question: Pick Guard ON or OFF?

    Have fun!

    Thank you guys.

    I haven't played my guitars for a while now. So I'm a little rusty, but I've picked them up again recently.
    Getting back on the horse again.

    Thank you.
    That's why I created an account. As I said, I've been lurking around here for a while and I like this place.

    Oh, I have a weak spot for girls with guitars!

    I'm an on and off player for 42 years. It is tough getting back into it.

    Don't we all! Not sure there are any females here ...

    If memory serves there was a thread started that had women with guitars. Some were actually
    musicians. Others were models who tried to look like they knew what they were doing...but
    didn't; they looked uncomfortable holding the guitar. Dumbest idea I've ever seen thinking
    someone would buy a guitar because some babe is holding it. Now if that female was
    playing that guitar...I'd take a look at the guitar...

    :welcome: to MLP and thank you for clearing up that mystery for me!

    I always heard you were buried in concrete under Yankee Stadium in NY or in the Hoover dam. :wow:

    Gear pics are always a nice way to say hello....:photos:

    And please, don't check your sense of humor at the door!:D

    We like to have fun in here, and sarcasm and wit abound, so be ready!

    Lots of silly pet gifs too! :laugh2:

    Curious George: Øystre Slidre, in Oppland county. Cool.
    They all sound so friendly in their way of speaking in that area. And they make great steaks!

    And as for female models with no clue around a guitar asked to hold a guitar for the camera, yeah. I've seen quite a lot of them. With their "I have no clue what I'm doing" look. I go "She's something to rest my eyes on. Say, wtf kind of a chord is that?". And I try to fret it by eye from what I'm seeing on the guitar just for the fun of it.
    *tonal chaos coming from my guitar*
    "Yeah, my dear guitar. I didn't think so either...."

    Hey, don't tell anyone! Please. My bank and some other guys were all over my case!
    I had to go into hiding.

    Tell you a little secret; I actually like the smell of concrete. Nice and cozy down here

    It is pretty obvious when someone holds a guitar and has no idea of how to play it.

    In this case it works just fine ... :)

    Especially in movies or TV shows where a character is playing guitar or bass. In studio sound quality. You see it straight away that that ain't right!
