Got a wolf made fender strat copy, metallic red, and a marshall amp. Tis very nice. Also got an acoustic which I've drawn on. Don't play either much, but could play rhythm guitar at a push.


I sing mainly :) Sing anything from blues to emo.

I'm unfortunately one of your all talk and no gear types! I play an Epiphone SG, a Westfield Strat copy, use a Line 6 Spider 50 watt amp and have an electric acoustic that I got cheap in Spain as well. I also play a bit of bass, I have a Vantage which isn't active which was my first one, basically because it looked cool, but I also have a Yamaha BB4G which is actually very nice, OK it's not top of the range expensive gear, but it has active pickups and 24 frets, so from a bass and considering my modest abilities on it then really it's about as much as I'm likely to want from a bass. I have a Yamaha keyboard as well, which I can't play very well at all, although I know my way round it of course (why have it otherwise?!), plus a couple of harmonicas, one in C (so I can use A natural minor/A pentatonic minor) which actually belongs to my brother and one in A (so I can blow out random notes in E mixolydian!), while I also still have a recorder (the wind instrument) from when I was at school. I'm hideously bad at that though - I do the trill at the start of the Mission Impossible theme on it from time to time and that's about it.


I am saving up though for a really nice guitar. I was thinking about getting a JEM as I could technically do it but I'll be spending money anyway in the next couple of months and should get a job first before I blow that sort of money, so it'll have to wait just a little longer. Ideally I'd like one good all-round guitar that's got a good rock tone and some decent cleaner tones as well as a main guitar, then a cheaper all-out metal guitar with a heavy bottom end and crisp lead tone, which could sound like crap for all I care when it's played clean.


I'm not in any bands, just a bedroom player really, but I tend to play stuff with flashy lead section quite badly. I like doing tapping and stuff, but I don't know if I really have the discipline to learn exercises slowly to cut out the sloppiness. Maybe if I have a proper go at sweep picking and combining sweeps with taps or legato runs I might learn to discipline myself as after a couple of years it must make your playing noticeably better.

I play guitar mainly and have a Fender Strat copy, a Charvel Jackson and a custom Kramer. I also have a couple of acoustics knocking about.


As for effects i have: Akai Variwah, Akai Shred-O-Matic, Zoom 510, Zoom 606, Zoom PS-01, Danelectro Molten Metal Pack and i have a Tascam 414 4-track. I have a Marshall amplifier. I can also play a bit of bass, trumpet, drums and keyboards.


I'm in a funk/punk/jazz/metal band with no name, we have been together for about 3 years now. I bring the metal element to the band as i listen to play stuff like Metallica to Deftones to Thrice to Killswitch Engage to Lamb of God, with everything in between!

I predominantly play guitar, although also sing, play drums and bass, and have done since I was about 5 or 6.


Erm I have a couple of Les Paul's, Epiphone cause I ain't made of money, and modded them with Seymour Duncan humbuckers and different toggle switches. Then I have a Korg multi FX and Line 6 POD for sh*ts and giggles, as well as Jim Dunlop Crybaby, and all through a 2x12 Peavey 5150. Been gigging since I was 13, and gone through numerous equipment changes, had old school amps, a telecaster, PRS santana s.e, etc etc


Also have a Yamaha bass somewhere which I dabble again now and then, and used to have a drum kit, but now just play for fun, and use the student's union's practise room one.
