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 tim I need on completing.

Anyway, my life basically circles around music, listening, playing but mostly writing. 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.

I make my living through putting up with 6-12 year olds five days a week (which is brilliant, I bloody love kids!) at fritids. Fritids is directly translated into "spare time" and is a sort of daycare thingy which works parallel with school. I put some extra effort into teaching the kids english, a few basic guitar riffs (smoke on the water etc) and everything sweet there is to know about rock music.

So to end the essay I'm just gonna go ahead and namedrop a FEW of my favourite bands.
Thrice, 36 Crazyfists, Cult of Luna, Misery Signals, Boysetsfire, Taproot, The Perishers, Lackarmé (and aaaall the other ones I could spend hours writing down but no one would ever read anyway.) biggrin.gif

Hey. Welcome.

I've been here for a short time, but I am quite sure GMC will fit you.

Just remember that "the boring" stuff is actually the fastest shortcut to ultra-cool stuff wink.gif . I remind myself about this from time to time.
