I'm Stefan from Sweden. I recently signed up again after a break from GMC (and guitarplaying). I got the motivation back and I really find many lessons here quite good. I've set myself the goal to learn at least a few lessons around the 7-9 level... I especially like Emir Hot's and Muris lessons.
I've played many years but never really practiced seriously. So I guess you could say I've played effeciently for about the equilant of someone who played 5 years.
Nowadays I only play at home, with this gear:
Peavey Vandenberg Custrom Quilt
Peavey Vandenberg 2nd Edition
Ztevie Signature from REK Guitars, Poland
Here's a family photo of the electrics:
Here's a short video of a Student Lesson I did here at GMC a long time ago, recorded with the "Ztevie" guitar:
And here's a recent recording I did for a competition I found on YouTube. Sloppy and flaws everywhere, but I only had a few hours to record before deadline. I just came up with a basic melody and filled in the rest with improvised stuff. Guitar used is the Vandenberg Custom:

Well, I haven't been very active the last 6 months or something, my guitarplaying's been in a kind of sleeping state lately...
Anyway, my favorite parts always been the Competition section, but I see nothing much happening there lately? How come? Also there seem to be a slowdown in the Collaboration area...
I hope it's a temporary setback?

So I got a new addition to my small collection of geetars today.
Packed well enough:
Looks like a Peavey of some sort?
Ouch! red!? Girlie color...
A Peavey Vandenberg 2nd edition. The guy said it was mint, and I don't disagree. Not a ding or scratch, and no fretwear that I can see... Everything looks in tiptop shape, no rust on the hardware and the neck is straight as an arrow... Some pick swirls can be seen in the right light though.
Incredible shape for a 20 year old piece of wood...
Needs some polishing, and a string change. I will also swap the pots and the switch, there is some noise going on when switching, a problem my old one also got in the end.
I made a mistake seeling a black 1st edition a few years ago, so I've been looking for another one since.
There's a Full Shred in the bridge but the guy also sent the stock pup. I will try a few other pups in there to find the optimal tone, but other than that, this is a plug and play shredder machine!

So me and a singer friend just recorded two acoustic songs.
Please feel free to listen and critizise, both good and bad feedback are welcome.
See the Light: Was a song I did several years ago. It has extremely cheesy/ridiculous lyrics, but my excuse is I was very young, I did it under the influence of swedish vodka, and it was finished in 10 minutes. It was kind of a joke song to start with, therefore the clichee lyrics, but people seem to like it for some reason, so...
The Suffering: Is of course a acoustic cover of the well known band Coheed And Cambria, altough we shortened it some and threw the verses and choruses around a bit.
I recorded 2 layers of acoustic, with some differences between them in a few places. On the first one there are also some acoustic soling going on here and there... If you listen very carefully you can hear my sweet voice in the background in a few spots, luckily my friend is a better singer than me, haha...

I gave Big Harry a tip via PM, but thought I'd put it here too, so others can check it out. Might be useful for some of you?
"Just checked my other pc. I use LamedropXPd, it's very small and does the job perfectly... It's only a few hundreds of kB, so it's a better option if you just wanna convert wav to mp3.
Just click here: http://www.brothersoft.com/d.php?soft_id=1...d3.0-3.98.2.zip
UNzip the file, and save this exe-file anywhere you like. Then put a shortcut on your desktop.
When you want to convert a file, just click this shortcut and a very small window will open. Right click this and do your settings for mp3-quality and any other setting you like.. Where you want to save the mp3files. I chose to always put the mp3 where the wavfile is...
THen when you have a wav-file somewhere, simply drag the wav and drop it on this small window, and it will produce a mp3-file in seconds"

hallo dar, I have student collab in the practice forum, it's the rhythm part to game of thrones theme that requires a melody, you should post a take :)
I like the youtube recording, very tasteful playing.
