Hey All, My name is Rich Mattingly And I am a head from KY. I am 33 and have been playing guitar for 23 years. I was a fixture on the local bar scene from the age of 18 till about 27 when my personnel demons caught up with me. Having gotten my life back on track I am ready to dedicate myself fully to playing Electric lead guitar in front of people for the kicks they and I get out of it. Before I quit playing my entire life consisted of playing the guitar and getting as many cheap thrills as I could. That was not really a good way to live. I have been lurking on this board for years, and now that I am finally getting back into the "nightlife" I figure this is good place to ask some gear related questions!
