About Adam James- “Hey Everyone”
Hey guys, Adam here! I’m from a town in the sunny and tropical Northwest of England.
My Upbringing Around Music and Intruments
I grew up around a family that played and deeply loved music. It is a family trait I well and truly inherited.
My Dad is a drummer and a typical ‘music advocate.’ Fun Fact – he always hitchhiked his way to Glastonbury Festival back in the 70s. When my Dad was young, He chased the typical rockstar dream, playing in tons of bands, trying to ‘make it.’ My Mum also loves her music to this day. She constantly bashes out her 80s classics from her era.
This is the reason why I love music and everything to do with music creation. I have passionately played the guitar for over 16 years with thanks to my musical upbringing.
I love everything about the journey and being creative with music and learning about guitar gear. I have acquired a ton of knowledge and experience over the years about guitar gear and common guitar related-topics.
When Did My Guitar Journey Begin?
When I was 12, my Dad took me to one of his band’s weekly practice sessions.
Strangely, I was more in awe of the lead guitarist laying out sweet ‘Clapton licks’ on his beautiful Black Gibson Les Paul. More so than my Dad just bashing away at his drums in the background (sorry Dad.)
The look, sound, and energy of the guitar in person instantly struck a chord with me. Also, being so interested in music, learning the guitar just made sense it was purely a natural thing to gravitate towards.
I remember I got my first guitar in my first year of secondary school. It was a cheap nylon string guitar that costly roughly £30.
It was ready for the bin. However, I was in love with it. I learned all the basics and got a few guitar lessons in school. Before I knew it, the guitar became my absolute obsession.
