I started playing in Sept '08. I would consider myself pretty decent, not good enough to put up any audio yet though. :-P I practice for a little over an hour a day, and I play for around a half hour a day. I've been learning a lot on the forums. it's a cool place to to learn/share knowledge, i like it. I live in a small town in New York, theres barely enough people for a band. I take music theory classes, private guitar lessons, and will probably do something with music as a career (not sure yet)
