Hi everyone I'm from Newport News, Va (minutes from the Hampton Coliseum :-) ). I'm not very good at guitar, but I like to play and i LOVE the grateful dead. Someday I'd like to be able to play the guitar with a lick of the emotion that Jerry could, because his shit is pretty unbelievable sometimes. Everyone have a great day!

hey if you wanna improve your guitar skills, RUKIND is a great place to do so. the lesson vids are always very helpful for me, a visual learner. there is alot of great theory talk as well, i was having some trouble with modes and such until i read a few posts that definately cleared the fog. what kind of guitar do you play? do you have any jams of your own? id love to hear! welcome aboard!

Who isn't? Hehe :peas:

Squire: I play a martin acoustic, and no, I don't really have any of my own jams other than just fiddlin' around.

Thanks for the welcome!
