I played seriously from ages 11 to 18....fell into a rut of just jamming along to songs I already knew...coupled with long time financial troubles...and I just fell out of it...just recently picked it back up (and thanks to a lot of guitar hero...my finger muscles are still intact) and I feel close to where I was at my best as a teenager. I love most types of metal...most that do not include a cookie monster singer.
