Hey everyone, Im Jim. Im 29 and live in Manchester in the UK
Have been a member for a week or so but have been so busy practicing that I haven’t had time to post
I used to play a bit like 10 years ago but with life I put the guitar down and didn’t touch it for a very long time, I got the bug again and was browsing the web when I came across GMC and had to join
My first guitar was a cheap Encore strat copy which is battered not much use anymore so I’ve treated myself to a new Jackson DKMG in forest green and a Valve Junior amp.
I’m finding the larger frets a bit of a pain to be honest but im sure ill get there, I’m really trying not to push too hard on the strings as ive been told this is they way to play with jumbo frets
Have been practicing my alternate picking using Kris's and Pavel's lessons and although I’ve got no speed at all im getting nice clean notes and getting used to using the metronome Wish Id knew about the metronome 10 years ago
Music wise I love almost everything but The Foo fighters are probably my Fav band (going to see them next week) But my ipod is full of everything from Metallica, System of a down, Radiohead to the smiths. The Pigeon detectives - "Wait for me" is the album of the moment
Will try and keep posting but I work with a dog rescue in my spare time so time is precious And my dogs would rather im playing with them than my guitar.
Nice to meet you all
