I´m so excited about the beginning of this challenging training. So, as I´m not a great speaker and I don´t see the necessity of it now, I´ll start with the main things.
After 10 or 11 unmusical years of life, I started playing the guitar. My teacher allowed me to skip some study years as I progressed pretty fast. For Christmas 2005 (or 2006, I don´t remember), I got my first electric guitar. I practised a lot and was inspired by my idol Carlos Santana. Then, for my 17th birthday I got my lovely JEM and practised the whole day during the holidays. This hasn´t changed until now. Until those wonderful time with my instrument, I knew that music plays and will play a big role in my life. But I wasn´t sure about the jobs. I was told that I was difficult to live from music, so I studied intensively mathematics at school which I like, too. After the summer holiday 2008 in Igalo where I met you, you convinced me to focus on music. Well, I changed school and have no serious problems there. At the moment, I am the best in music in my class ( ) and I know that I won´t have problems with living from music. Ideally, I´d like to travel around the globe and play my music for people. If this won´t be possible, I still have my classical guitar diploma, so I can be a guitar teacher.
-improvising (you´ve seen me improvising, so you have an idea of the chaos that I´m talking about )
-finishing ideas (I started a lot of projects and never finished one)
-sometimes, I don´t feel that I have control over my hands
-being that versatile/good to live from music later on
-apply my theoretical knowledge (which is pretty good) in praxis
-to have a certain charisma on stage since I´m performing more and more frequently (I think that only a few tips should be ok which I could try to apply)
-expand my fretboard knowledge (I know what note is on which fret, but when improvising, I am not fast enough)
Bohemian Rhapsody Solo
I think that my vibrato improved, but it isn´t very confident here. Also my tone control could be better. The good thing were the bends.
For the Love of God
In general, I´m satisfied with the playing. There were a few sloppy notes, timing and whammy bar problems.

Currently working on:
Emir Hot - Turkish March
I have problems with the fast AP part, but it will be better in a few weeks. I have to get used to the melody/fingering.
Muris Varajic - E minor Melodic Solo
I started practising this first-class melody in order to develop my vibrato, bends and composing skills. I think that I can play it pretty good now, it only needs some small corrections.
Muris Varajic - Alternate Picking
Now, this lesson is killing me. I can´t go further than 90 bpm. And even at that point, it´s not very clean.
Sometimes, I practise Mojo Oro.
Could you give me the bt´s of the two middle lessons, please? Both at 90 bpm.
Well, that´s it I think.
