    Don’t really bother with tabs, tend to figure them out by ear.

    Do have the ultimate guitar app on my phone which I’ve used now and again but haven’t paid for it.

    That is a steal, there are pedals cost as much if not more than that.

    I'm amazed at huge amounts of money people have spent on Gear here. Some deep pockets.
    of course I would have done the same if I'd had the funds lol.

    I learnt in my late teens, then stopped, started again in 20's then stopped, and sold everything when babies arrived.
    Recently as one of the kids too an interest in guitar so I've bought a beat up old 90s Pacifica just noodle on.
    They just got a mini strat, and so I bought and amp for us both.
    I don't remember any music I used to know. But the fingers still remember how to move around the fretboard. Its great as stress relief.

    Nice :) The most expensive guitar thing I have is my Fender Strat... American Pro and I bought it for myself as a 30th Birthday Present (on 0% Finance for 2 years!) as up until that I had never really splashed out on a proper full price guitar...

    How have I missed this thread!

    I've been playing since I was 20. Over the years more guitars have passed through my hands than I care to remember. My current gear:

    Ibanez S1070PBZ
    Gibson Les Paul Studio
    Fender Graham Coxon Telecaster
    Fender Richie Sambora Stratocaster CAR
    Blackstar Series 1 2x12 45W combo
    Boss Katana 100 1x12
    Jim Dunlop Crybaby
    TC Electronics HOF
    TC Electronics Flashback
    Marshall Edward The Compressor
    Marshall Supervibe Chorus
    Juan Solo FX Triangle 71 Fuzz

    Ibanez SR300E bass
    Fender Rumble 100 combo

    Gone but not forgotten:
    Gibson Les Paul Standard
    Fender MIA Deluxe Stratocaster
    Fender Richie Sambora Stratocaster LPB
    Taylor 810CE
    Marshall TSL100H & 1960A

    A whole bunch of other gear has been and gone, but for one reason or another has been entirely forgettable :D

    Indeed you can! The GA-FC switch is a life saver though, wouldn't be without it. So much easier than ******* around with buttons on the amp. Which raises a point, I've yet to install BTS on the PC I've just built.

    @OspreyO yup there is silly money spending on gear in here. I am certainly one of the worst offenders being such a bedroom noodler - but, ya know. GUITARS \m/,

    Equipment has been out of the house so will probably collect next weekend and get some noise going.

    How do you read certain tabs? Examples:

    -7--
    ---
    ---
    ---
    ---
    -0-

    Does this one mean I need to pluck the first and last string at the same time? So either plucking the first with pick and finger plucking the last open?

    Also What about this:

    ---
    ---
    -(0)-
    ---
    --2
    ---

    I guess it would be the same above but what's with the brackets around 0?

    Yeah first and last string at the same time.

    The note in brackets is like an optional note. it sounds in the recording but shouldn't really be there. I think it can mean a mistake as well.

    The notes in brackets tend to be from terrible text file tab. I have always understood it to crudely mean to that the note is sustained from a previously played note.

    So in the above example, the open G string (an “0”) is played somewhere earlier in the tab. Then the second fret A string is played with the g string still ringing out.

    Otherwise, it’s an optional note as had been said.

    Just get guitar pro and be done with it :p

    My Kemper Remote has arrived and I'm stuck in work... argh. Finally got around to getting it to help utilise more functionality within the Kemper, shame it won't improve the playing :D

    Sure have. There are some iffy ones in there, but also some great ones. The Rockerverb clone is pretty tasty, as are the high gain Marshall tones.
