Mike from Detroit here. I'm a new user, and I love this place already!
I'm a bass player by trade, but have also been playing guitar (or trying at least) for about 12 years. I suffered a hand injury a few years back, so I was out of commission for a couple years, but decided to go balls out again with music about 5 months ago.
I'm a life-long metalhead, heavily into thrash, hardcore, shred, and a lot of euro-based stuff. I even dabble into some punk, death metal
, and black metal now and then. And of course, my roots are still firmly planted in 60's, 70's, and 80's Hard Rock.
Back in April, I dusted off my old grinders, picked up a few new toys, and set up a crude PC-based digital studio in the bedroom of my house (which my wife hates, by the way). I've picked up a few decent little programs here and there that have really made me step up and focus on writing and arranging again.
I'm looking forward to hangin' here a bit and maybe learnin' a thing or two from you monsters. Hopefully I'll be able to help out a little too, and throw some advice or some licks or backing tracks up for the masses to enjoy as well.
