Hi there,

It's a great honour for me to present Marcus Siepen from German metal band Blind Guardian as an instructor at GMC!

Marcus discovered GMC some weeks ago more or less by accident. He was blown away by GMC and our instructors and immediately signed up for an account. Here is what he says in his blog:

QUOTE
Some weeks ago I discovered the site of Guitarmasterclass , an awesome webpage with tons of great lessons for guitarists. The lessons come in form of videos, with tabs and whatever else you might need to follow them and the variety is endless, from very simple things for beginners up to stuff that most likely I will only be able to play after 15 years of daily practice (and with some of the lessons I am not sure if those 15 years would be enough for me ;-) ) I immediately loved the idea, putting lessons from all kinds of teachers online in one webpage is just great and I thought it would be a great chance for me to also restart giving guitar lessons, and guess what, today I was accepted as a new teacher for GMC :-) So whoever is interested in learning new things, check out this page, there are awesome lessons online already and soon there will also be my first lessons.

Marcus quickly spotted topics which were lacking at GMC so - so stay tuned for his first lesson! biggrin.gif

On a personal note I am very happy Marcus found his way - because I no longer had any excuse not to dive into Blind Guardian's music. I am currently listening to "A Twist in the Myth" and I am blown away by the tight guitars and atmospheric songs! Best part is - I have a total of 11 (!!) albums to check out! biggrin.gif

So be sure to check out the Blind Guardian site - as well as Blind Guardian GMC reviews.

Welcome to GMC Marcus!

"Fact is, nothing in the world bores me more than gear...If I played thru your rig, I would still sound like me. Van Halen would sound like Van Halen. Brian May...etc. Very early in my career I decided to focus on creating music and not being a guitar tech. Being a good guitar tech is a very different and extremely difficult job, so why not leave it to a pro?"
