    Exclamation Welcome Two New SWAT Team Members

    Hey everybody, we would like to announce that we have two new members of the SWAT Team. It's actually two forum members who have been super active here and while there are a lot of really active members, these two guys have always come up when we've discussed getting new people involved with the SWAT Team. These guys have a great desire to become better guitarists and like Beboy, Wolfboy and the rest of the team - Rgalvez and JimiClaptonCarl think the journey to becoming a better guitarist works better by helping and encouraging other folks who are taking the same journey. We've all found Truefire and individually discovered how great the learning materials are and how awesome the people of Truefire really are. This forum itself is a testimony to how much Brad, Brad, Ren, Red and the rest of the Truefire family care about their customers. Thank you Truefire and thank you Rgalvez and JimiClaptonCarl for accepting!
    Enjoy Your Karma, after all you earned it.

    Hey Guys! what a nice way to start the day!!
    As some know I was not part of the orignal SWAT team by accident, but I always loved the atmosphere here and it's really cool to help each other as Gadlaw describes so good. I won't dissapoint and I found out that Jimi is the piece we need here since he's a young fuel we really need to work hard and have fun with the instrument.

    Thanks a lot for thinking about me and let's work!

    Welcome aboard fellow Swatters, good to have you on board.

    Roberto - I do recall that you were almost part of the original Swat team... It's been a long time coming and finally here you are. Congrats on your arrival.

    JCC - a hearty welcome and congrats to you as well.

    Stay tuned

    I am thrilled to have you two onboard. RG has been around since SWAT started and Jimi brings some youth to us moldy oldies
    Anyway this is the first time we have added SWAT members in about a year I guess. Several other folks have been mentioned as well so in the future there will probably be more added. For those of you new, when Brad first conceived of this idea it took quite a while to get enough people onboard even with all the freebies Truefire bribed us with....Now they are handing out free course and straps left and right, on pace for 3-4 free guitars a year...amazing!!!

    Well welcome again you two

    Actually, the Truefire gang is at the NAMM in Nashville, he approved it before he left, Rgalvez got his email to Brad and a reply back with Brad saying he'll do his magic when he gets back. You were at school and doing that important school stuff so we couldn't find you before then. So you're like in the waiting room, waiting.

    Don't forget to pick up your keys to the Swat team private restroom and make sure you practice the secret handshake. There's a test.

    I'm still practicing my hammer ons and pull offs for the moment! ;)
    Yes as Gadlaw commented I already received Brad's mail. He commented that he would adjust everything after returning from NAMM (or maybe he meant from 'nam ? ) . Let's wait for a while and then we will erase spammers as crazy !!

    Hang in there, I just spoke to Brad and he said he would get to this as soon as possible. He is very busy but I'm sure he'll get to it soon.

    LOL Rgalvez I am very sorry to let you know that there are no more spammers... they have all been banned already. Well maybe there will still be a few straggling by now and then but ... Thank God, we have been very quiet here lately - regarding spammers anyway.

    Even without spammers I think you will enjoy being a 'Swatter'. [
