I've been playing guitar with very little discipline since about 1999! Decided in 2009 that lessons might actually be a wise move....
My playing has improved quite drastically since actually applying some structure to my learning and forcing myself to concentrate on the difficult bits, rather than giving up and finding something easy!
Very much into power metal, thrash metal and anything along those lines, as well as good ol' classic rock and loads of other stuff.
I live in Manchester in the UK, and would love to meet up with any other like minded people to jam, get drunk with or whatever.
