Default Any Guitar Pickers In Da House?

Just wondered if there where any other guitar pickers here on HBT. I was hard and heavy about it before I bought my house and put them down about a year and a half ago. Been picking them back up here recently.... I forgot how much therapy it can be to kick back and get lost on a guitar.

I'm more of an acoustic guy (my baby is an Alvarez Master Series), but do have a Dean and a Strat that begs for attention from time to time.....lol. I find myself playing more laid back folkey (is that a word) rock.

So lets hear it..... Who plays?

I used to pluck around a bit, just haven't seen the time anymore.

I really wish I never put mine down to be honest. I was far from good, but folks always loved it when I broke it out from time to time and played for everyone (I normaly wait till everyone is good and buzzed... that way they all say I rock the next day...lol).

I have lost all the calluses on my fingers so now I'm right back into the painful stage and on top of that. I done forgot half the notes and songs I use to play...... Ohhh well, we live and learn I guess....

Bass only here, although I do have a BC Rich Warlock sitting here that if I ever buy a soldering iron, I plan on fixing up. Generally, I can only concentrate money into one hobby at a time though, so it's on perma-hold until I can afford to fix it. The upside is, I only paid $50 for it.

I used to play avidly when I had time, finger style and rhythm acoustic. I still pick it up for probably 20 minutes a week, but am no where near as proficient as I was. My calluses on fingers are still gnarly enough to do about a 30 min session before my fingers give out. Half of the time I just pick it up and start playing progressions and scales then I may cut into a verse or something every now and again, I doubt I could even perform a full song any more.

Oh and I play a Martin DR with a modified bridge/pins and a piezo pickup. I pretty much don't like the sound of it any longer, it's been re setup by a local luthier and I still am not a fan of the sound any longer. I may get rid of it and just pick up an 400$ Alvarez, I helped a friend guitar shop for a first guitar and I was pleasantly surprised at what I found in their guitars.

I used to be pretty good, but as I get older I find less time. My influences are Tony Iommni, Jimmy page, Jerry Cantrel, Neil Young and on and on... I have been itching to break out the wah wah; We'll see what happens after a couple of brews this weekend.

I have two Fender acoustics, one's a 12-string. I started playing in high school but I don't play much anymore. Every now and then I'll get the urge to pull one out.

I've always liked playing a 12 over a regular guitar.

1974 Les Paul here with a Marshall combo amp.

I too am far from good, even though I've been playing for 15+ years.

I have an old Martin D18 that I fool with some. Mostly old time and bluegrass.
