So, it's been four years since I registered here for the first time.
I dug up my old intro in the vintage section. Some of it still fits, some of it doesn't.

I stopped using GMC cause I just didn't feel it helped me. To be honest it gave me absolutely shit.
However, I've developed my creative skills A LOT since last time around. Both bands I mentioned in my old intro are now "dead"(-ish) and kinda developed into two new projects. I even toured with my hardcore band last summer!

I'm still lacking in skills/technique/orwhateveryouwantocallit (which in, my opinion, this site can really help you improve).
I still don't want to be a shredder or the best/fastest/coolest player ever. But I really want my guitaring to improve (faster). And hopefully the one-year subscribtion I just signed will help me with that. And this time around I think I'm more ready to use the tools this site offers (and will be able to offer people around me a lot more too!)

See you in the forums!

Well well, I just registered and started surfing around checking out all the different lessons.
My names Sean, 20 years old, part swedish (swedish mom) and part english (english dad). I've lived in Sweden all my life so I basically consider myself swedish even though I'm very proud of my internationally ringing name and my english blood (my god what a self-obsessed dude I sound like).

I've been playing guitar for about 4 years but I've always skipped "the boring" stuff. Such as scales and technique excercises and so on. If you ask me I'm a bloody good songwriter but a useless guitarplayer. I catch myself coming up with brilliant ideas but every so often not being able to use them since I've been too lazy when it comes to "the boring stuff". I've never taken any lessons since I'm too lazy for it but I found this site and thougt it would fit me well. It's got lots of interesting lessons which I can acces any time I want and I can take any time I need on completing.

I've got two bands going at the moment. A punkband (myspace.com/grabenpunk) and a more experimental rock-ish one (myspace.com/nowwerun), I do vocals and guitar in both.

Then there followed a part covering what I do for a living. In short, I (still) work at a school and I still bloody love kids!
And I ended with some standard namedropping (of bands I still really enjoy):

Welcome to the site! This is a great place for whatever you want to work on.I recognized Taproot but not the others. I will have to check them out. I highly suggest finding a mentor, or two that will help you on what you want to learn. It sounds like you want to sharpen your music writing with the guitar a bit. The more specific you are in what you want to achieve the better an instructor can help come up with how to improve. Good luck.
