Hi Everyone,

Just joined today... i found RUKind before i even picked up a guitar for the first time in 1999. Far and away the number one influence on my playing.

I just purchased a Schechter C-1 Classic, and play it through a Hot Rod Deluxe. I also play a Seagull acoustic when i don't want to wake the kids...

Big thanks to the Admins and contributors for helping me develop a new (and favorite) hobby!!

I play a tobacco sunburst American Deluxe Strat through a Fender Blues Deluxe Reissue amp. The only effects I use are a Crybaby Classic.

the bar is McCarthy's in Lakewood on Detroit road, up here right on the lake. im not sure the exact address, but if you do a map search know that there is a second McCarthy's downtown in the flats. Akron's not too far away, i'm in the area all the time for work. I saw Israel Vibration down there last summer, or maybe it was the summer before. awsome show , but across the street from the cop shop. i actually installed all the furniture in Akron U's dormrooms - that sucked.

Yeah, I just read about McCarthy's in this weeks Scene magazine. Lakewood is a cool little town. I delivered a singing telegram at a bar there a few years back.
