Greetings all, another old timer here. I use to play bass in the 70's, got married, had kids and stepped back from playing. Got divorced in the 80's and ran the soundboard for bands. In the 90's I switched to running the soundboard for live theatre and became a grandpa. My 13 year old grandson received a Squire Strat last Christmas & I've been trying to teach him how to play, but it was rough with only his guitar. I just purchased an Epi G-400 in faded brown and Mustang 1 amp for me to play along with him and we have really been bonding on a whole new level. We just watched an all time favorite classic movie of mine "Crossroads" and I've been calling him "Lightning Boy".

I guess that I'm not your ordinary kinda grandpa. I drive a 400 WHP Evo as my daily driver and have modded the hell out of it. Looks like I'll be modding my Epi next. I did my own set up and took strings that you could poll vault over to a fairly decent guitar to play. I decided on a SG because it was the axe of choice of one of my clients, Arthur Lee. I built a web site for him and the band LOVE which some of you old timers may be familiar with. For a living I build web sites, so if any of you talented young or old artists need a web site, mention MLP and I'll give you the fellow fretter discount. You can see some of my work at WavMixer. I've already learned a bunch form this site and look forward to leaning much much more.

Lightning boy was looking over my shoulder while I was posting here and he saw the avitar I made for this forum. Of coarse he wanted me to make an avitar for him too.
