    Being as it may be, not liking the idea of being served a dog biscuit, everytime I f*ck up, I thought that I'd add some books to my friends lessons...

    Would these be any good, cheap and cheerful as they are... :lol:

    Hopefully, my granddad, who, while he was still among us, built his own guitars and so on, so with a bit of luck, some talant (I wish) found its way down through my dad... :lol:

    Now, need to find a way round this bl**dy dog biscuit thing! :lol:

    Nice axe there, Jan. The paint scheme screams rockabilly, but hollow body electric guitars are pretty versatile. Learn the chords and some fingering styles and you'll be well on your way. Have fun with it!

    It's gotta be fun, or why do it? :) Building the calluses is kinda painful, but a good kind of pain. For the styles you want to play, the Gretsch will serve you well.

    Yup, love the guitar. It will suit almost all styles. Even Malcom Young (AC/DC) palyed one of these once. Go for it Jan!

    I'm pretty excited over the thought of a Swettish Rock-god. Go for it! I wish I had any musical talent, I learned the piano and the banjo when I was a kid, but I have no rhythm so it sounds like crap.

    No, ABBA doesn't count. Although maybe Jan will put together a Rockabilly version of Dancing Queen:shock: Noooooooooooooo!!!

    Actually, "Waterloo" would probably be good, (or is it "gud"?) in a rock-a-billy style!

    ...a more suitable Abba-song would be "Does Your Mother Know". ;)
    Great Galland, Jan is going to learn to play the guitar! o.0
    Now we all know why we can hear a faint howling noise coming from up north - it's Jan howling, because his fingers feels like they're about to fall off from all that playing! ;)
    Hals- und beinbruch, Jan - und viel SpaƟ, mein freund. ;)
