Hey everyone,

My name is Matt and I am 21.. (I know..'too young to play the blues'). I go to college in the mountains of Virginia, and will be finishing with a B.S. in Civil Engineering next spring. I have always been a huge fan of the blues and recently started getting more serious about learning to play and learning the history of it. I have been taking a few online lessons to try and get me started. (I'm still in the baby stages and struggling with keeping a steady 1/4 note tempo with alt. bass). I plan on playing as far into my life as I am physically able to, and want to get better at bottleneck, take up the blues harmonica, and learn to play dobro/lap steel.

Last summer I converted my old 1940's Sears/Roebuck catalog special into a resonator.. its very crude, but works suprisingly well. Its pretty loud and clear! 8)

I have never been good at 'About Me' posts though, so if anyone wants to know anything else about me just ask!

This looks like an awesome forum and I hope I can be cleared by the mods to join!
