i've been playing music daily since the 80s.
guitar has been my primary instrument for over 20 years now.
i played rhythm and lead guitar in a working reggae band for over a decade, starting in the early 90s.
since then ive been gigging and doing lessons on and off.
ive got a decent recording setup here and a bit of extra gear like keys etc.
i want to record and jam for fun or gig.
