    Hi everyone,

    It’s been about 5 years since I’ve posted so I thought that I’d say hi again. I’m a married dad of two from Austin, TX, I think that I’m an intermediate guitarist, skills wise and I’m having fun again. I really look forward to getting back up to speed (both guitar and socially).

    It was really interesting for me to look at my last list of gear here. It’s been a long time and a bunch of it has changed but my favorite Squier Deluxe Strat, amp, overdrive and reverb are still the core of my playing.

    Welcome back to Strat Talk, Pete. Fun is what it's all about, of course most are continually working to be more proficient all the time too.
    I believe one characteristic of a true artist in any endeavor is a tendency to critique ourselves, never being satisfied with mere adequacy.
    Case in point: An uncle of mine was a commercial artist, when not compiling ads on his day job he loved to paint. I am one of the few who received one of his paintings (in exchange for putting his beloved 69 Chevelle convertible into running condition). At various times, when at my house, he would peruse the painting and point out things he could have done better.
    As guitar players, we make a fumble or two..play through it..we notice, but our audience rarely does.

    Welcome back, to that same old place that you laughed about
    Well the names have all changed since you hung around
    But those dreams have remained and they've turned around
    Who'd have thought they'd lead ya
    (Who'd have thought they'd lead ya)
    Back here where we need ya
    (Back here where we need ya)
    Yeah we tease him a lot 'cause we got him on the spot

    Thanks everyone. Nothing good or bad happened to pull me away. Just life. It feels good to be playing again and I’m ready to start working on some of my bad habits. I’ve got my own little list of things to work on. And some songs.
