I’ve actually never had any kind of music lessons whatsoever.
I own a Boss BR–1600 recorder and an Epiphone Les Paul I replaced the pickups on (besides my computer, these are literally my only worldly possessions).

Any support will help! I’d love to be able to pay for decent music lessons, or even take courses in audio engineering; and I’ve wanted to buy an oud and a tabla for a long time.
