    Hey, What an honor. I’ve played guitar forever but never really tried to get a better handle on really playing it until I started knocking out some ideas and posting on MacJams. Then Mcboy graciously took me under his wing and started to push me to become a better musician. Yeah I put in some hard work but I also tried to play something better and push myself when I knew it was going to be placed in a Mcboy track. So to you my friend, I thank you.

    Been making infrequent checks on the blog and am pleased to see Z293 is a real being, not just guitar slinging alien being. Though the way he rips on the guitar it still makes me wonder…. Rock on!
