Hello All,

OK, a bit late on the introductions here. I technically joined this forum almost 2 years ago. Have kind of drifted around in the cyber world.

I'm thrilled to be here and to be talking to others who are as passionate about music and the guitar as I am.

I am not a Doctor by the way, Doctorvetsill is an anagram for my full name.

I look forward to talking to all of you and maybe sharing some of my recordings in the show & tell section.

I have been playing guitar since the age of 9 (I'm 35 now) and have 2 degrees in music. I have an Associate of Arts with Music Concentration from Northern Essex Community College and a Bachelor Of Music in Music Business from UMass Lowell (a highly underrated music program).

I am in a couple of bands. One rock, one folk. I'm working on some solo material.

My main guitar is an '88 Fender Strat Plus. I take strays too! I'll take any instrument and try to rebuild it!

I also play brass (trumpet, valve trombone, flugelhorn), some drums and keys.

I am married to the most wonderful, beautiful woman in the world, my wife Stacy and we have a beautiful 8 1/2 week old daughter Sophia.

I use the music part of my degree outside of work and the business part working for a major insurance company in Boston.

Nice to officially meet you all. Can't wait to talk GUITAR!!!!!!!
