Yeah, Coll goes loud

Hey folks, it takes ages to load, but it's worth it, especially if you find my secret pages...

Me and my guitar family

Hi folks, I'm just another bedroom guitarist. I've got 5 guitars and too many pedals for my skill level, but I love it!!

If you want to see them (or me), go to http://hometown.aol.co.uk/tenyearsasleep/index.html I promise it's worth it, for a good old chuckle, if nothing else... It's even better if you find my secret pages, but I warn you, it takes ages to load, 'cause I'm only with crappy AOL right now (sorry, that should be A*L). Love you all.

My Gear!

My favourite guitar is a Danelectro U2, which sounds SO warm it's unreal. I also have a telecaster, a les paul, a strat,and a crafter electro-acoustic. My favourite amp is my Marshall G100RCD, and I still love my Dunlop cry-baby. I love most styles of music, but if I'm being honest, the only one I've ever really mastered (if that's not too strong a word) is grunge, a la Nirvana. ;-)
