My experience with the guitar

I'm 16 and attend currently attend high school. I starting playing November 1999 (2 1/2 years ago). My parents bought me an Ibanez Acoustic Starter's Pack. I started taking lessons then and have been taking them since. Learned some stuff on that. I saved up for a while, and last October I bought a Squier Stratocaster and Fender Frontman 15R. Been playing with that ever since.

Styles of Music

First starting out I was really into rock (circa 1999). Then I started listening to some better stuff (AC/DC, Guns n Roses, Metallica). I also got into a lot of punk music. In the past few months I've been getting into some bluesy stuff, and jamming with my friends, which is quite fun (as you all know).
