My story, the short version. Been playing 52 years. In and out of bands, playing just for fun. The last 20 years playing in worship bands at church. Loved doing that. I also have a Champion 40 amp, but changed the speaker to an Eminence Legend. Great sound to my ears. How good am I? Better than some, not as good as others, I play for the enjoyment of doing it. Would I quit my day job to focus more on my guitar? Wait, I did, I'm retired!
