My name's Richard, and I am 40yrs old.
I am disabled with (autism/brain-injury)
and a long time ago, I was a US Army servicemen.

Back in 2008, when I first moved to South Florida
my Dad played the following from his music collection 4 me.

James Taylor, Jim Croce, John Denver, Jose Feliciano
Magdelena and Classical Gas. (so I have folk music in my heart)

And music that I still listen to from my youth, is
Ska (tim armstrong), Stoner-rock infuzed Blues-core.
a bit of Glam rock, Glam-punk (1970's).

When I was growing up in Los Angeles in the 80s-90s
My cousin was a bass player for a Punk band.
So (X), Runaways, Blondie, Abba. Bohemien Rhapsody

I currently have a hollow-body Ibenez, that is more or less
a wall decoration, But If I can re-learn the chords my Dad
taught me, and practice some finger-picking exercises.

I would eventually like to buy a practice amp, and network
with beginner musicians in my Local Area.

PS: Ybor City, has a good blues scene. And the Tangerine
Blues Festival is pretty awesome.

Thanks for letting me share.

Maybe check out the Marshall mini practice amp while you decide on a proper floor amp. They retail for around fifty bucks. Don't let the size fool you. They sound great. You can run it on a AC power supply or a 9 volt DC and clip it to a belt and carry it around to rawk your neighbors.

I play. Self taught by ear during my teens on an electric Hondo H-76 strat copy. Still have it along with a Washburn VGA 15 amp. Got an Takemine Jasmine S35, a Honer HW300G, and a Washburn D10 with a really nice set of Grover keys and a Martin hard shell case that I got for a steal from a little shop when I was on a job in New Jersey. I basically paid the value of the keys and case and got a free guitar. And, I have a Boulder Creek Riptide electric ukulele that's super fun to play that I picked up in Corpus Christi. I've only ever put any of my stuff on to the net once and that was a short comic composition that I did with the Riptide on a manic high and posted to funny or die, but it seems to have gone wherever fod videos go to die. I still have a take on my old mac. Maybe I'll dig it out sometime. Other than that I've got about, maybe, ten minutes of original stuff. Twenty-three years of playing, maybe ten minutes of original material and it never even got me laid. Some things are their own reward.

And, bye-the-way, great jewelry that you have made, MargaritaMama.

I've been wanting to learn how to play the Piano for quite sometime now. The only song I can play is Marry had a Little Lamb. I've tried teaching myself how to play, with youtube videos and books, but I just can't grasp the concept for some reason.

I'm on of those gross greying haird metal heads. I rock an ernie ball sportsman, and about to get another Ernie... a 7 string majesty.

Love that Gothenburg stuff..

Hi. Im new here at Gunslingers. Im not sure if I can call myself a musician, even if others do.
I released two digital EP:s of ambient music on a US label called Cold Fiction Music. I did field recordings in train stations around Germany and mixed that up with abmient soft dub techno. Can be seen here https://cfmlabel.bandcamp.com/album/deutsche-bahn-ep and Spotify and Itunes and so on.
Nice reading all you other peoples stuff here! Cheers!
