Hey Alex thx for taking care of me xD.
First of I need to clarify that Im right-handed sorry for the confusion there.

Allright as I said my weakness is definitely coordination between hands. I also seem to rush things when in fact I might not be rdy to go on ( For instance when training with a metronome I tend to go up quite fast not noticing any mistakes I might have made on slower tempos. In general my one big weakness is my dedication to achive a certain level of mastering this Instrument. Its the only thing I kept doing over the years and I hated myself for not being more disciplined when i started playing. I sometimes tend to push myself into frustration to the point where I dont like to play anymore.
That is somehow a strong point too because I am generally motivated to push my limits.

For my goals:

I want to be able to grasp my fretboard and to play musically and free on the guitar.
Id like to be able to play at decent speed and Improvise over a variety of musical styles
I want to learn about Songwriting and chord changes especially in regard to the modes. I know quite a few but I dont know how to make a mode specific song.

My favorite Guitarists and Musicians are:

ACDC for being an amazing Rockband with very impressive rhythm playing.
Steve Vai for beeing just insanely versed on the guitar. I dont necessarily like all his music but he still is a master.
BB King well I started with Blues and played to his Songs a lot.
Almost everything from 80s Hairmetal its just such a powerful music and I love the style and feel of it very much ( The band Im forming will be a Glam Rock / Hair Metal band ).

All right, so much for a short answer xD.

regards Lixxx

PS:

A Dark Souls Blues

Its something I recorded on a JM4 2 or 3 years ago. It has some serious timing flaws and I completely forgot how to play it xD.
Just so you get an Impression of my playing. I have a video of me doing canon rock as well but I dont have a youtube account yet.
