    My living room.
    And an extended, wildly dysfunctional family.

    I love it here.

    This place is a refuge for me. For me it is not a place about Stratocasters or even Fender guitars. I’ve never really got on with Strats and don’t currently own one. I come here to learn. I come here because it’s friendly. I come here because I can get constructive criticism without judgement of my playing. I come here because I have friends here. I come here because I enjoy being here.

    I happened upon this site several years ago when googling some now-forgotten guitar-related question I had, and I found a correct answer and some entertaining discussion in the thread to which I was led. A few weeks later I had a question about technique and it happened again. I then started lurking here directly and became fond of several of the “regulars” and began to follow along when I could, learning and being turned on to new-to-me music and ideas and possibilities all while being thoroughly entertained. Eventually I joined (which I should have done much sooner) and am so very glad I did. To me it is truly a joy to chat with people of similar interests and to learn so much from those much further down the path than I, and to be able to refine and give direction to my practice and development in guitar and in music and be entertained along the way. I tend to steer pretty clear of the silly arguments and posturing for the most part, and focus on the positives of which there are so many here. I realize of course that disagreements do happen and I can learn from different views, but when it devolves into pettiness and the ego-driven chest puffing so common in many other internet forums it really is a shame. But fortunately there’s A LOT more good than bad and I am truly happy to be part of it. I only wish conditions were such that I could be here more. Thanks everyone!

    Inspiration, and mostly good banter. It's been twelve years.

    There were many times that reading the posts actually lifted me up during or after divorce, unemployment, or a routine day! ;)

    Today's Word of the Day belongs to @fezz parka ... jingoistic.
    New one for me, and I hate to say, a useful one.

    A place where I can learn some useful info from time to time.

    But where I’ve got virtually nothing useful to contribute, with the exception of off-topic threads.

    ST is entertaining to read. Some good stuff.
    Has updates on new fender guitars and specs before fender releases them.
    A good laugh every now and again.

    Iv'e not been here too long but if it doesn't get better soon I'm off, out of here, for like eon's, but possibly might be tempted to grace you with my presence if there's free decent strong cheese to go with my wine, if not, you tight arsed buggers can stew in your own mire and I shall inform all new comers that you all smell of elderberries & dried lavender sacks (yes, you didn't know lavender had balls did you?) other than that I trust we have all had a nice day, thank you.
