    Been watching the site for a couple of weeks now .Like the informative posts (and the sense of humour on display )so just signed up. Been playing since I was15.....played full time in bands (They were called groups then)in the sixties travelling all over the UK and a couple of European tours..Got married ,settled down,"proper" job family etc. Did approx 20 yrs as a solo Act on the Northern club circuit which was buzzing at that time.Have a 1963L series Strat and a 1970 Tele. Not played guitar for almost 20yrs...Been playing organ and keyboard .Got the urge to try guitar again. My finger ends are killing me!!

    BTW for non UK members Lancashire is a county in NW England....Manchester/Liverpool area.
