    Any guitar players out there?

    As you might can deduce by looking at my name, I'm a drummer/percussionist. I have been for going on 24 years now. I never had any experience with any other instrument type. That all changed recently when my step-dad, who is a luthier by hobby, made me a guitar.

    I'm only a month in, and I am hooked. Picked up "Guitar for Dummies" and have been playing every night. Already got some good calluses. haha

    Any other guitar players out there?

    Pics aren't coming through on my end. I'd love to see it. I play a lot around the house. Not as much as I used to. I find sitting down with my acoustic one of the most effective ways to wind down after a tough day of work. I hope you enjoy it as much as I have!

    Not nearly as much as I used to, but occasionally.

    Pics donít come through for me either.

    Hopefully these will come through.

    Back, sides, fretboard, and bridge are Rosewood.
    Top is Engelman Spruce.
    Neck is Honduran Mahogany.

    Just bass.

    I could play single notes on a guitar, but not any chords. My hands could never work for that.

    At one time there were some pretty nice guitars in the johnnylightin family. Does your brother the doctor still play/collect?

    Ha! Yes. Joe has quite a collection. He even lets me play some of them...sometimes. The collection has grown since the Cot102 days!

    Even as an adult, it's a challenge to share your favorite toys with a younger sibling. That instinct/history gets really ingrained.

    I didn't (and don't) know enough to truly appreciate his collection. But I knew enough to know it was impressive even back then (and even though he had the sense not to bring most to the dorm room).

    I have a guitar or two laying around, I occasionally even have a chance to even play one of them. Still no luck with the pictures coming through for me though. It sounds like you have a great first guitar!

    Jesus. What happened to the photo uploading capabilities of this board? I've tried everything and nothing is working.
