    Wassup guys

    I'm Dave from Mississauga, Ontario or Toronto, Ontario if your not familiar with or have never heard of Mississauga. I'm 24 yrs old and like all of you here, love everything about the axe that is true to everything rock n' roll! I've cruised through a few posts at the site and decided to join.  I'll be honest I'm kinda computer illiterate and I'm new to these forums so i guess just have some patience with me! Thanks in advance.  I've first started playn' guitar when i was 12 but put it down for a while... 10 years to be exact, and just picked it up again nonstop in the past 1yr 1/2 and regret ever stopping - i still ask myself why! Anyways major musical influences are Sabbath/Ozzy, Zeppelin, AC/DC, Clapton, Doors among many others new and old! I bought my first SG, "Rosie the 1st" (epiphone G-400) 2yrs into playin' then bought "Rosie" an '89 Gibson '62 reissue off ebay last year (my first Gibson!) and shes my baby. I gave my epi to my younger bro. "Fatty", a Capri? A 1960'-'70s Japanese ripoff of a Gibson ES-335 or some general semi. That was the axe i started on and she sings! I also own a Yamaha acoustic from sears that I bought for $50 back in the day! And just recently broke the bank to buy "Goldie" a '61 RI in antique ebony w/ gold h/w and shes really nice (can you tell I'm an SG fanatic!) And they sing thru a 100W Marshall Valvestate amp. My pedals include a V-wah, Big Muff Pi, Boss pedals are: DD-6, Compressor/sustainer, noise reductor, blues driver, and an MXR wylde o/d. + a marshall footswitch. Anyways, i just realized i wrote a ton of crap just now. Ne ways glad to be a member and look forward to donating 'cuz a site like this is a blessing to have around and appreciated by any newbie (I've learned a hell of stuff from ETSG!)
