So much to play
I started on a Harmony Acoustic I traded for some hiking boots. I caught the fever of playing but it was a pretty frustrating guitar to learn on so I bought a Standard Strat at a pawn shop on a whim. Probably the best $140 I ever spent. My guitar skills increased quickly from there because it is so much more fun to play. After getting a little caught up with the guitar itself, I put new pickups, pots, saddles, tuning machines, pickgaurd and switch into it, I realized how cool guitars are and fun they are to work on. It plays and sounds much better and is customized to my liking. Then I was committed. I bought another acoustic, this time a Seagull which is what I play mostly now. I like everything from Neil to Big Head Todd to Jimi to Jerry to PJ to Ben to Radiohead, the Allmans and Mould. I gravitate toward blues and rock and have been trying to get a handle on some Bluegrass.
