    Hi there, I joined recently - about a month ago when I became the proud owner of a 1973 Standard. I have lots of good guitars but the SG is giving me the best sound I've ever had. Also recently acquired a Vox AC15 which I love and already have a Vox AD50VT and a Peavey Special 112. My other guitars include a 1990 Gibson Les Paul Classic, a 1968 Fender Strat, and a 1973 Fender Tele.

    My musical tastes vary from AC/DC to Frank Zappa. I love classic rock, jazz and blues, fingerstyle guitar and basically anything thats played well. I play in a covers band mainly and teach guitar both at home and in schools. I am also a music examiner for the London College of Music who run a very unique exam syllabus in electric guitar.

    Anyway, just thought I'd introduce myself because this seems to be a very informative site. I have been reading through a lot of old posts picking up bits and pieces of info here and there and I think it's great to get so many viewpoints from all over the globe.

    I also have quite a vast library of published tablature so if anyone is stuck for a particular song or solo drop me a line on mickeyfrets@MickeyMurphy.co.uk and if I have it I'll scan it and send it on.

    Welcome Mickey.
    Great offer there. Might take you up on it sometime. This is best online forum I have ever discovered related to guitar. The mods are quick to keep arguments off the boards. We all have varying opinions and welcome the diversity in views. A little light hearted humor now and then as well. Looking foreward to your posts.

    The black pedal nearest the guitar is an Arion Stage Tuner. I lost the little name plate which covers the battery compartment on the front. A very easy tuner to use on most stages but absolutley useless at outdoor venues - though with our Irish weather I don't do too many outdoor gigs anyway.
