      My name is John Amherst and as a child i had always wanted to learn how to play guitar. Other children wanted to be a fireman or a policeman...not me, i wanted to be a rock star! But for some reason, i never took lessons and just kept putting it off. Recently i took advantage of an extended holiday from work and decided to dedicate myself to learn how to play guitar. Now i am playing in a local band every weekend and loving life!
