Hello there, Bala from Auburn, AL

Hello all. Some of you already know me from the old community forum. I’m known by my first name Bala. I’m 29 years old. I’m a guitarist and a singer. I’ve been playing guitar seriously for the past 3 years or so but have been playing around with it for about 10 years now. I’m currently in 2 bands and have also collaborated with other bands/ people. I have also had the opportunity to collaborate with some really amazing people from this community. I do write some originals every now and then but we mostly do covers. I’m currently also learning to play the piano and have played around with the harmonica and bass too.

I’m really happy that we have a new forum and I really thank Lieven, Close and Justin and everybody else who made this happen. I was a little inconsistent posting in the old forum in the last year or so and this gives me a chance to start fresh. Let’s do this! \m/


Welcome to the new community Bala.

Yes Richard! Although I ran out of available replies for my first day. There’s so much to catch up on. I’m starting by to like the new forum more and more however. Thank you. :slight_smile:

I read the reply there too. Thank you Adrian :blush:

Life as a married man is hardly any different with my wife since we’ve been together for so long. The new house is good but strangely enough I’ve been jamming a lot lesser than I had hope to. Piano is surprisingly difficult. A lot of people said if you can play one instrument, you can easily learn to play another. But the piano is definitely a whole new beast. I’m working h

Thank you so much! :blush:
