    Hi guys/gals,

    :idea: Just as a matter of curiosity, I wondered how many people from the UK are on this site. Now, I know there are plenty of other websites dedicated to getting musicians together in any given area, but I kind of figured that maybe a UK only thread would encourage people from the UK to post more adverts on here. See how it goes... So, here goes my little CV:

    22m guitarist based in Portsmouth, Hampshire, though sometimes do make forays to Farnborough, so any area around the two would be cool. 9 years experience, got all my own gear, gigged a few times, have done some recording, though I am not vastly experienced in either of the two pursuits. Enjoy most types of music, from death to country to electronica, as well as the obligatory guitar heroes (Vai, Gilbert, Satriani, Lane). Lately been listening to Krisiun and Strapping Young Lad quite a lot :hbang: , but by no means limited to one sort of music. I'm just always on the lookout for jams, projects, anything really, so PM me if interested. Cheers!

    Welcome! :wavey:

    There's a lot of us from the UK. Myself, 7 Dying Trees, Rogue, Papa Shank, Karl Hungas, Shorty, B3n, Distressed Romeo, Delfino Pie, Shikaru to name just a few that randomly come to mind.

    Hopefully some more of them might chime in!

    Quiet Scotsman here. I know that's a bit of a self-contradiction but we do exist.

    Hi guys, and thanks for welcoming me and all. :cheers: I kind of thought that it was more of a US based site and all (no offense intended towards the americans on here at all btw), and it's cool to see some people on here from this part o' the world!

    Englishman behind enemy lines in scotland here. Can't complain though.

    777 is from Dublin, though at the moment I can't remember if that's in the UK or not.

    You poor bastard. How did that happen? I just assumed you were a Scot.

    Born in london, Parents decided for some unknown reason to move to Shetland (which happens to be the most northerly point of the UK, I do believe) then down to somewhere in the middle. Luckily scotland hasn't really affected me. I have a strange english/american abomination of an accent though, as one of my friends lived in america for a long time. It's annoying.

    And that's my life story summed up in a paragraph........Kind of depressing if you think about it lol

    Oh well, give it a few years until you've got a bit of money and move back to England and somewhere where there's a decent nightlife.

    Neither Karl Hungus or 777 are from the UK and if they are anything like my relatives in the homeland they would be massively offended for being classified as UK residents. :lol:

    They are from EIRE.

    I did state that I can't remember if Dublin is in northern ireland or not :fawk:

    I'm right across the pond from Dublin actually, if it's the place in Ireland I'm thinking of. An hour or so journey on the boat from the town 15 mins from me.

    EDIT: Actually that's Belfast I'm thinking of. I knew it began with B. I'm too tired for that level of intellectual thinking. Clearly proved by the fact I just went to dictionary.com to look up the spelling of the word intellectual.

    :funny:

    Well if I'm going to be pedantic (which of course I am) No you fucking didn't!

    To quote Brian of the Griffin family - In your fucking face fuckwad! :fawk:

    But, I'll let you off as I know you have more tesco club card points than I do and that should always be respected. :lol:
