  1. Chris, DianeB nailed it. Especially when you are starting out with an amp that models various pedals (which you can try before you buy for your board). I have a "Travel Board" that I use for practice and taking with me to Jams that contains a TC Electronics Polytune2 Tuner, a Boss OC-3 Bass Octave (to simulate a bass player sort of), a Looper (I went with Boss RC-3 to take Backing Tracks with me) and a Singular Sound Beat Buddy (metronome that simulates a Drummer sort of). I REALLY wish I would have started with these (Tuner and Looper first, then metronome, then whatever pedal came up) and saved myself a ton of money (to put into Guitars until I found the "One" for that week LOL). To save money up front DianeB is right, all you need is a Tuner you like and a Ditto looper (which I also have on my home board for a clean loop set, after compression and distortions/drivers, the other looper is later after mods). My home pedal board is too big, but it sure was fun trying out new ones over the years, and I'm sure I'll continue to experiment. Brian
  2. @Nutty 1 We meet monthly and have a guest performer, then do an hour of lessons together on a topic, but every now and then we do an Open Mic Night where we have jammed together. I haven't really met any of them outside of GL Nights to Jam per se
  3. Hello Everyone, I'm new to your site, and planning on coming to the 2019 Guitar Gathering in June. I'm not sure what to say beyond what I put in my profile. I puttered around with learning Guitar since 2007 (mostly online like YouTube stuff), then dove head first into it after my Wife passed away in 2015. I have joined a local group of people that enjoy playing/listening to Guitar Music (called Guitar League) here in Southern Wisconsin. I'm at a stage where I've done about 2 years of Music Theory (Chords - Open, CAGED, starting alternate fingerings), Scales (CAGED/Box and 3NPS, Starting Modes) Riffs to practice techniques (too many to list LOL), and just starting to sing (Campfire style) while playing. I guess I do mainly Classic Rock, Blues, and am just starting on the Jazz Standards (but I'm sure I have missed a TON of things along my path of learning Guitar). My end goal for playing Guitar is not actually to perform on stage or record, but to Jam with good people and to enjoy all types of music while learning to add a little Beauty to the World.
  4. Another one coming your way. I registered and got a dorm yesterday, just waiting for it to process then I'm confirmed coming your way this summer. I'm new to your Site and this will be my first Gathering. Brian
