    Heh.
    I guess I've racked up quite a few posts now but never really introduced myself.

    Hi! I'm jetlag! Or in the real world known as Adam, or Seab (part of my surname) to my friends. But jetlag. jetters, jett0rz, jetfrith, jetski... are all fine (just a selection of names i've been attached to on one other forum!)

    I'm 19, nearly 20 - I feel like an old man allready :/. I hail from sunny (HAH) south Wales in the UK.
    None of that "Wales, isn't that in England?" from you American chappies please, had enough of that when I visited :p

    Umm yeah. Started off playing bass about 3 1/2 years ago, with a Peavey Milestone III, got a bit bored of it and after a year bought a cheap AXL Tele copy, which, at that time I loved. A while after I bought a Stagg Jazzmaster copy, which seemed like the guitar of my dreams. The Tele was soon relagated to become a dustcollector. Then bought a Strat Copy and then most recently my Vintage SG about 5/6 months ago.
    Can't wait to get my hands on a Gibson SG Standard, and a Fender Tele 62RI. Though it's a pain in the arse that i'm lefty and have to pay such overheads for being lefty :(

    But yeah, my current setup (from what I can remember) is:
    Vintage SG -> Boss LS-2 -> [LOOP] Bespeco Volume Pedal -> Fender PT-100 tuner -> Digitech Whammy -> Boss DS-1 -> EHX USA Big Muff -> Boss NS-2 -> Crybaby -> Danelectro Tuna Melt (Tremolo) -> EHX Small Stone USA -> Boss DD-6 -> Boss DM-2 8) -> [LOOP] Boss LS-2 -> Boss RC20XL -> Marshall DSL100 (jcm 2000) -> Marshall 1936 cab.
    Though due to the size of the head/cab I use my Peavey Rage 158 for band practice cause it's smaller :roll:

    Phew! There's a few other pedals lying about that occasionally get added and taken away, but that's the main setup there.
    Currently playing in a 3-piece band, doing guitars and vocal (though, neither very well :p)
    We play some sort of alternative music that we can't really describle, haven't really heard anything that sounds like us. I guess if you're interested in having a listen drop me a PM or something and I'll send a recording or two we've done in practice. Song titles include "Drunken Carousel", "Mexico", "Offbeat" "Untitled" and a few more that haven't got names. Only Carousel has lyrics at the moment.

    Yeah. I think I've ranted on enough now. Apart from the fact that i'm hoping to get some lessons as soon as I can afford them, and maybe next september, go back to college to do a music prac course. See how it goes :)

    byeeee! :)

    JJ? eh? :-\

    And lessons on what? :p

    I feel like I'm amongst good company here.
    Most other forums/messageboards etc I feel like slapping half the people across the face for poor spelling and punctuation or words like "wot". Gah. Kids these days :roll:

    ...shocking thing is, come 2 weeks today, I can actually say "kids these days" without being a teenager myself anymore ;D :D

    oh man I'm getting old :oops: ;D

    The Welsh are Celts! And hence a Celtic dialect.
    Though Celts are also Scottish, Irishand the Isle of Man.

    Actually I just had a look on Wikipedia and it seems Cornwall and Brittany are Celtic areas too. And that's my something that I've learned today :)
