What level guitarist are you? (Beginner, Intermediate, Advanced, Expert)

I've been beginning for a few years now and am determined to move past that.

What styles of music would you like to play? (Rock, Blues, Singer/Songwriter, Jazz, etc.)

Rock, Blues, Jazz. Anything with substance. Sophistication over shred, though.

Who is your biggest guitar influence and why?

Varies week to week. Richard Thompson, Pat Metheny, Buddy Guy, Jimmy Page, Steve Howe, Greg Liesz, and so on. I also like the lesser players, who make it about the song: Keith Richards, Bruce Springsteen.


I'm a writer/photographer who's always been addicted to music, though never been a player of it. I bought some guitars and have been trying to learn for a few years now. I've read that playing with others is the only real way to advance, so . . .
