helllo from chitown

Postby cumberlandmine » Thu Sep 09, 2010 10:50 am

Hello good people, my name is Nick. I'm 24 and living near Wrigley Field in Chicago. Have checked out this forum quite a few times and figured it was high time to register. Lately been digging the think tank; a sorry attempt at analyzing crazy fingers led me there, and it made me realize I've been slackin on the theory.

Anyway, guitar wise here's the low down:
played about 7 years, and put in quite a few hours during that time.
Like to play a lot of different stuff rock-funk based originals, classic rock, Phish and current jambands, blues, and ehhh.. oh yeah the DEAD
Setup=
PRS SE semi-hollow or a Gibson SG > Behringer COmpressor, Dunlop WAh, Tube Screamer, Boss OD/Dist, Q Tron, Ibanez Chorus, Boss DigDelay > Shitty Crate Combo (which has a phaser switch i use sometimes)

Now that you heard my boring shit here.. most of all .. Would like to find like-minded musicians in Chicago!! I am not involved in much at the moment and would like to change that.

rock on and fare theee well

Welcome chitown!
You live near one of the truly great man-made structures in this country, I've been to a few games at Wrigley.

How odd that we have a Sox fan from North (Northwest?) side and a Cub fan from the South side (that's right, I'm referring to Indiana as Chicago's South side).

Meanwhile Portland just lost our only pro baseball club, the minor-league Beavers got kicked out of PGE Park when it became a fulltime MLS soccer stadium.
