Jason Herfort

I'm Jason. I live in Chapel Hill, NC. I'm 28 years old and have been playing over 2 years now.

History with the Guitar

I picked up a guitar for the first time in April, 1999. My Girlfriend said she was interested in playing. I found an old guitar in the attic of a house I was renting, cleaned it up, strung it, and presented it to her as a birthday gift. She lost interest in about a week, but I couldn't put it down.

I ran out to a local pawnshop and bought a cheap red Hondo for $80. I painted it green and have spent at least 2-3 hours a day playing it for the last year. For Xmas, the gf bought me a gfx-707 and my granny gave me an old sears and ro. tremolo amp.

I know it sometimes seems as if progress is slow, but keep at it everyone. I'm way better than I was just a year ago.
