okay, bad way to start!
my name is Ben
Straight outta London, Ontario (for the uninformed, that be in America's hat)
I've been noodling around with guitars for ...this is going on 8 years I believe. hacking away is the best way to describe it.
I have no "music theory" knowledge, I just let rip and see what dies
as for gear, I am a noob to 7 strings, and actually am picking up my first tomorrow, from member Velocity (yes, he REALLY is faster!
big fan of Jackson & Charvel guitars, and a special place in my heart for BC Richs and Peavey's (Vandenberg = best in the world, IMHO)
as for amps, I do the rack thing, its just a good way to go
looking forward to getting to know the ins and outs of the forum and the people that make it tick!
