Hello Everyone,

I'm Andreas and I come from germany (hope you excuse my once a while bad english unsure.gif )
I joined this site very spontaneous a few days ago - and, by the way, I'm very glad that I did so.

I play guitar for something about 6 years now. I startet at the primary school where my music teacher offered guitar lessons. There I learned the first chords (anyone know the smashing song "The Cock Is Dead"? I nailed it! wink.gif )
I played for about 1 year. Well, then I unfortunately put the guitar away for several years.

With about 16 I suddenly discovered the electric guitar, and it hit me very hard wink.gif I still knew the chords from the primary school and started to play again. I took lessons from 2 different private teachers, learned something about theory (not much), and something about technique (also not much I think).

I canceled the private lessons completly, unless I wasn't satisfied with my technique, and the teachers I had couldn't teach me something like that, well at least I had that kind of feeling.
So I started to read books about this topic. But, unless I doubt really quick (kind of..."well, am I doing it right this kind?"), I didn't reach my goal with this way.
I also tried an online course, but it just offered cheap interaction. In fact it also didn't took me higher.

So, to come to an end, I'm already a bit frustrated, and don't really think that I can become a fast picking guitar player. But, and there it comes, after a few days as a member of this really great community, I'm motivated again.

So - Hello to you all! smile.gif

best regards
Andreas

Hi Andreas ,

great to have you here with us. I'm sure you'll be able to reach your goals and trust me - anyone can play fast with some practice.
Just make sure you use all the GMC resources like video chat, REC program, collaborations and ask as many questions as you wish in the forum.

See you round,
Bogdan

Herzlich Willkommen Andreas!
As I said in the chat yesterday, GMC took my playing (especially my picking) to another level, it just takes ptactice. Bogdan is right, when you use all of GMCs resources, especially Rec takes, you'll get better real soon.
By the way, your english is pretty good, so no worries about that wink.gif
Viele Grüße und bis bald
Christian

Willkommen Andreas !

You've come to the right place smile.gif Your English is fine.. much better than my German ! laugh.gif

Also, as the other guys have said.. anybody can develop speed. However, there are much more important things to work on before that as well and GMC will help you in all these aspects.

Ben

Hey Andreas, welcome!

I know what that frustration linked to not being able to play fast enough feels like, completely get you there man. Just take it slowly and try to forget about speed, otherwise the frustration will build. Speed will come with accuracy, be patient smile.gif

Hope you find what you want here.
