I'm 28, live in Leicester, England, probably the most boring place on Earth, and am about to become a student again. I've had a guitar for years but until recently only ever picked it up to play 'Mrs Robinson'. However a new lease of life has recently been dealt to my six stringed thief of time and the tunes most likely to be murdered are fingerstyle blues and folk.
After a shaky start I began listening to Hendrix, thanks to the use of 'Crosstown traffic' for a jeans ad. That was it then, No.1 for me for a long time has been Led Zepplin, but I like lots of stuff, mainly older; Doors, Beatles, Dylan, Tim (and Jeff) Buckley, Nick Drake, John Renbourne, Bert Jansch, Gomez, Muse, Smashing Pumpkins, Bob Marley and lots and lots of soul. Al Green you're the man.
