I play guitar and sing in a dream pop band that sounds like Beach House kinda.
My guitar is a Fender Jazzmaster and I play through a Classic 50 with a bunch of boutique pedals (just bought a Hungry Robot Stargazer last month and dig it to heck). I get told my voice sounds like Rachel Goswell a lot.
I play the banjo (clawhammer style) kinda ok. I've been learning guitar for the last few years, but I still fucking suck.
I spend most of my free time practicing, but shit doesn't come easy when you're well past you're prime learning years. One of my biggest regrets is not starting when I was a kid.
