    Hi all, first, thanks to tone1 for pointing me here. Also, started on this forum because i wanted to sell a brand new SA2200. Didn't go over very well, i think.


    Q1:  Where did you username come from?

    That's my name, mates. I'm ethnically Chinese, which explains my name. People in UK address me by Kai.

    Q2:  Where in the world/country are you?

    I'm a student from Singapore studying in London. Usually hop between these two countries, currently in Singapore and gonna be back in London in 3 days.

    Q3:  What's your main musical ambition?

    I've been playing for awhile - this year's the 8th year - but never really improved beyond improvising with pentatonic scales. I usually play an acoustic, so i really hope to improve on fingerstyle and reach Sungha Jung level. (what, you don't know who's Sungha Jung? c'mon, do a search on youtube. That kid's cray.)

    Q4:  Your "best" bit of gear - just the one?

    Maestro Custom Series, Victoria  - made in Singapore!

    Q5:  Your #1 ever track - again, just the one?

    This one probably changes every couple of weeks..... currently it's Superstition by Stevie Wonder... i think

    Hello! I'm Paul and I have been playing guitar, badly, for 20 years or something like that. Currently in a couple of bands and play around the London area for awesome-super-fun-times(tm).

    Q1:  Where did you username come from?

    It's my second name with a "Y" at the end. I am quite amazingly creative like that. You should hear my music!

    Q2:  Where in the world/country are you?

    London. However, originally from South Shields. Lived in London for around 25 years. I am very old.

    Q3:  What's your main musical ambition?

    Awesome-super-fun-times(tm). Just love playing gigs and doing songs with other people. No particular ambition other than to have fun.

    Q4:  Your "best" bit of gear - just the one?

    Hard one. Probably my Gibson LP. It's 2012 Studio so nothing special. It's battered and gets repaired more often than played but you know, I kind of have a love hate relationship with it.

    Q5:  Your #1 ever track - again, just the one?

    Impossible. Who wrote these questions, a sadist? Really hard to single out. However, I am going to go with March of the Black Queen. By Queen. On "Queen II". Because it just about represents every bit of music in the world because they where a bit mad back then.
