    I’m Julian and I live in Cincinnati, OH.
    I’ve played guitar since I was a teen and got to be pretty technically skilled, but I never got into theory/knowledge per se... it was always the challenge to be get to play the next song and solo,etc.

    So, eventually... the “thrill was gone” lol

    Last year I decided to pick up my old MIM Strat which I had previously modified with Kinman pickups and other mods, and the big difference this time was that I felt the urge to learn to improvise. Had never had the bug before!

    Currently, I’ve been going through some online fretboard courses and I’m excited to be able to start making my first improvs.

    I’m so excited that I actually found a beautiful fender custom shop heavy relic in surf green and went for it!! Had never invested that much in a guitar but I just love it!!

    ... and so on I go along with you all in this rabbit hole in search for THE tone and the mojo.

    Excited to be here!

    Cheers to everyone.

    Welcome! I used to live in Cincy for like 8/9 years. Great town. Glad you picked it back up.

    Welcome, fellow Ohioan! You'll like it here.

    Of course, other unscrupulous souls around here will certainly pressure for pictures of your gear. Not me, of course ... others. I just thought I'd give you a friendly warning. ;)

    Congratulations on refinding your thrill - if not on Blueberry Hill, then the hills of Cincinnati! I moved around a lot growing up, and Cincinnati was one of only two big cities I liked. I lived there in the early 70s. The free concerts down at Eden Park were like a mini-Woodstock all summer long. I hope some of that vibe is still around for you.
