Thanks to Gr8scott for passing the torch this way.

My name is Tom Williams, and I'm originally from Galax, Virginia. It's about 40 minutes North of Scott's place in Mt Airy.

Born 1970 in a hospital that has since become a drug rehab center.

Started playing guitar in high school at age 13, and bought my first guitar for five bucks.

Moved to Co in 2000, and met my wife in 2001. Had a daughter in 2006. Cook for a living at an outdoor ed center in the mountains.

Anyhoo, fire away and let's see if this will go more than two pages
