I took up playing the guitar not long after finishing high school. I had two good friends who taught me the basics and I've also had some paid lessons. I play a Crimson Stratocaster at home by myself and have never played with an actual band as such.
If anyone in the Maitland and Newcastle area is interested in getting together for a jam, email me, firstname.lastname@example.org
