Hi There,

I decided to join GMC.

I stared playing 19 years ago when I was about 16 years old.
I played and had lessons for about 6 years. But then I stopped playing.

I got a girlfriend, moved out of the house, got a busy job and eventually got married.

Now I'm 36 And something has changed. My nephew (he is 8 years old) wanted to learn to play guitar and asked if I could teach him.

So I started teaching him, and found out what I have been missing all these years. Playing my Guitar.

My Wife decided to give me a new guitar she bought me a Ibanez RG350DXZ
Ibanez RG350DXZ

And now I'm rocking again. I Joined GMC because I wanted to learn new rifs and songs. And It gives me a lot of inspiration.

Thank you for this great site :-)

Welcome to the forum! We are glad you could join us. What genre(s) of music do you listen to?

I listen to a wide range of music, Not one specific Genre. here are some examples :-)

Linkin Park, Metalica, Queen, Marillion, Slash, Steve vai But also Some Clasical Guitar romance de amor is one of my favorites.
And top 40 Music.

I think it's important that music evokes an emotion.
Numb from Linkin Park is for me a good example of evoking an emotion :-)

Welcome to GMC, vdcraats! You're story is kind of similar to mine. (Although, my wife didn't get me an RG 350, & I want one sooooo bad, but she & the fam are very supportive of my new habit! btw...your wife rocks!) You were smarter & joined earlier than I did (I'm 48). You will reach your goals here at GMC! Everyone is so supportive...instructors & students. Everything you need is here! Hope to see you in the chats & forum!

I'm glad she liked the comment. smile.gif

I have an Aria LP copy that my Mom got for me from a music store she worked in back in the early 70's. Probably not a great guitar but since she got it for me it means a lot & I would never get rid of it. Kind of funny, actually. She had to order it & to me it seemed like months for it to get shipped to their store, but was probably just a few weeks. We had a terrible snow storm the night it finally arrived (we lived in Virginia at the time) & she almost got in a wreck from the bad weather. Being a typical teen, I was pretty frustrated she took so long to get home that night & she was so stressed by the time she got home. We laugh about it now, of course.

From Todd's video chats, he has me pretty hungry for an RG. But I think a Strat would be nice, too.
