Been lurking awhile, figured I'd introduce myself. My name is Scott and I reside in Richmond, VA. I hit the big 40 next month and made the decision to do something productive with my life, so I picked up the guitar again in Jan. 2009 and the uke for the first time not long thereafter.

Currently, have a Taylor 314CE and a Lanakai S-TEQ uke. I also have a little Martin LX-1E that I play while kicking back on the couch.

I have two children (boys--7 and 3) and my hope is to get them into music so they can jam with me. I have a pretty large basement that has a pool table and doubles as my music room where I have a small PA set up. As you can imagine, it gets a lot of use on the weekends when friends come over.

I would love to play in front of people sometime, that is a lifelong dream. However, right now I'm navigating my way around both instruments. I'm finding the uke a little easier to pick up and have made the decision to learn as many holiday tunes as I can so I can perhaps play a few at a party or two--albeit after a couple of drinks of liquid courage.

I'm glad I came across this site. I've learned a lot by just reading. Perhaps once day, I'll have enough guts to post a video or two.

If anyone from central VA is on here, shoot me a note. I've would love someone to jam with.

Thanks all and happy strumming.

Welcome Welcome...

The movie will be starting shortly, the snack bar is that way and the bathrooms are down the hall!

Enjoy your stay!

Welcome! I live up near Washington but get down to the Richmond area once in awhile. If there's ever a jam down that way, I might make the trip.
