Comments:  I've been playing since the early 70's (I *had* to play guitar after hearing Band of Gypsies), mostly blues/blues rock/funk pentatonic minor stuff, but I love metal, bluegrass, hip-hop, chamber music, jazz, traditional country, etc (although IMO 75% of the music in *all* genres sucks). I've been in a few bands, mostly in garages and basements, but we played a couple of coffeehouses and bars (the only time I ever got paid was for playing bass in a power punk band). I've owned a bunch of different gear over the years, and am fairly adept at maintaining and modifying axes (I've modded and repaired a few amps, but I'm just a hack at electronics).

How I found the FDP:  I stumbled into it.
