    I just make up riffs, string them together, and call them songs. When I find the time.

    I am a middle school PE teacher and a Coach for a number of sports... both high school and middle school...

    I also have the pleasure of teaching a high school guitar 101 class.

    During the summers I usually work concrete or painter to supplement my crappy income.

    there are some things in the works and some great ideas for the future that we have not really worked on yet... not sure how much I should say. More choices basically. But right now we are working mostly on setting up operations on a new machine.

    I'm hunched in front of a computer drawing pretty pictures of buildings. Occasionally, I get out of my chair to visit a construction site and yell at incompetent guys who are unable to understand the stuff that I put on paper.

    Yes, I'm an architect, and no, it's not as glamorous as it sounds.

    I'm a gay porn actor. The job blows and can be a real pain in the ass.

    For the most part, I play whisky soaked heavy rock with a groove.

    So, you dig dikks for a living? And drink Dikkel?

    I must have misunderstood you.
    If you play guitar chest-high, you play from your heart.

    If you play guitar waist-high, you play from your guts.

    If you play guitar low, you play from your huevos.

    I am living ??

    I am an unemployed court jester/ minstrel/ troubador. I wander from town to town, composing songs on my lute as i walk through the fields so that i can take the news from the previous town to the next town via my witty verse.

    My style is progressive 13th century medieval with some older influences. I'm not at all keen on this new 'rennaisance' style that the kids today are listening to.

    Work is scarce here and i may be forced to relocate to a kingdom to find further employment. Denmark is looking good .... does anyone know whether they are still free from the black death ?
    Lumbering dinosaur (what's a master volume control?)

    STALKER, NO STALKING !!!

    I'm a professional musician, and my main employer for the past 12 years is a singer named Daryl Braithwaite, who is somewhat iconic in this country, having had a very successful band as far back as the 70s, and a very successful solo career in the late 80s and early 90s. I've played guitar professionally for 30 years, and in that time I've had signed original bands, a few publishing deals, played in countless cover bands, television pit bands, and for the past 15 years, I've been a sideman for several popular Australian artists. I also do the occasional session and production work, producing demos for other artists. My touring career has taken me around Australia more times than I can remember, and also through Europe, England, China, Malaysia, Indonesia, Singapore, New Zealand, a few Pacific Islands, and most recently the Middle East (Abu Dhabi). The vast majority of my work these days is within Australia, and we do around 120 shows per year in the various cities, towns and rural areas. I've worked hard, but I've been blessed, too.

    I play pretty much everything other than metal, jazz, country and polka. My main styles would include, rock, classic and otherwise, pop, funk, blues, soul, old school R&B, reggae and ska. In truth I am a self taught blues based hack with a good ear for parts and a good musical memory.

    I've been a journalist for the last 6 years, and I'm burnout as hell so I'm trying my hand at something completely different;
    currently learning to operate heavy machinery and then I'll probably fly to Canada by the end of this year,
    to specialize further in the subject and return to Chile as an instructor in the mining field.

    I also play guitar in a pop/rock project with a few friends of mine.
    Ibanez SZ320 / A2 Pro neck, Screamin' Demon bridge.
    AllParts Strat / Toneriders Pure Vintage set
    Partscaster #2 / JB-8 bridge.

    Egnater Tweaker 15 + DIY 1x12 cab + Eminence Wizard / Roland Cube 60
    Zvex Super Duper, EHX Memory Toy, Keeley BD2, Boss GE-7, CE-2, DD-5, Marshall Jackhammer,
    EHX Metal Muff TB.

    Agriculture. I heard flocks of teenagers who are being raised so that the test data we force them to produce can be harvested, processed, refined, further processed, and finally converted into grant money. I also harvest crops of checkboxes that are exchanged internally for grant money, and externally for immunity against lawsuits. 100% organic, of course.


    I play sloppy, noisy rock/metal/punk on electric guitar and snoozetastic, fingerpicked 12-string acoustic ballad-wank.
