At home jammer. Never trained. Just get yourself a guitar, turn off the TV and play until until the sounds & notes made by the strings are so well integrated into your ear/brain/hand system that you can just "sing along" with them.
Do intermittent live (mostly improvised) shows with friend's band and enjoy "jams" (when the music has songs with the right "hooks" beyond somewhat boring 12 bar R&B)
"Bluesy" players with great feel (Jeff Beck for example)
Various amps, guitars and midi gear. Main rig is Roland VGA 7 amp (13 pin), AXE-FX Ultra using my home-made Strat.
Invented new tremolo system because existing systems just didn't do it for me and I constantly broke my strings and went out of tune using those Will be available to the public soon, but presently only in a few very special hands. Patent issued January 2006. Lots more info and some cool links on my home page at:
