Hi, my name is Mark Thatcher. I’m originally from Rhode Island. I got on the bus Mothers Day 1978 in Providence. I was 15 at the time. Been a long strange trip. I have been on an acoustic Bluegrass kick for a long time. I play mainly fiddle, I have a few 5 stringers. I started out on guitar in the 70’s I now have a 2000 Martin HD28LSV, then went to mandolin in the 80s fiddle in the 90s Banjo in 00’s and now finally making my way to electricity. I want to get a Phred or some similar Garcia clone’y type guitar. I never got much further than campfires snd BG festivals as far as picking snd equipment. I’m ready to learn amps and pedals and obels. :) I got a Boss ME80 for Xmas this year and I’m starting to figure out stuff on the fiddle with it. Anyway, pleasure to meet you all snd a pleasure to be here. Here is a video I just did, a good example of where I am musically, technically and gear/knowledge wise at the moment. Just a hack but I like to have fun with it.

Paul, are you also in this TGP NC gearfest picture? (I'm to the far right holding my Philtone Jerrycaster "Tiger.")

I am not in that picture, I only attended one of those meet ups it has to be close to 10 years ago now, crazy.
