Hello to Everyone at GMC.

I am new to GMC, but am excited to finally be a part of an online guitar community such as this. I have spoken to Marcus before, many times and he assured me I would enjoy it. So now I sit with guitar in hand and must finish this introduction as quickly as I can to go and lose myself in the GMC Guitar Pool..... Its a pleasure to meet you all, and with all the instructor's help I hope to learn and improve all the time.

Hope to speak to you all soon,
Iain!

Ive been playing guitar for roughly 8 years, but for the first 3 i wasnt very serious about it. I enjoyed sitting learning chords and playing along with some songs. It wasnt until I heard Yngwie Malmsteen that I realised I wanted to practice and get as good as I could possibly be. I still love Malmsteen and strive to play Far Beyond The Sun perfectly....a feat I will achieve before I die, even if i have to get Marcus drunk and "borrow" his hands while he sleeps wink.gif

Nowadays I listen to anything that has good melody and is well written. I keep going back to the same guitarists:

Gus G, Yngwie Malmsteen, Reb Beach, Rob Marcello, Joe Satriani, Paul Gilbert, Andy Timmons, Dave Weiner, Edu Ardanuy, Kiko Loureiro, Vinnie Moore, Ted Nugent, Mark Knopfler and many others ranging from metal to jazz to blues.

When writing I try and use melody before anything else, I like the idea of someone humming a melody line from one of my songs days after hearing it. That is more important to me than blistering speed. Although some times its nice to cut loose wink.gif

Hopefully soon I can put some video's up demonstrating some stuff Ive learnt here at GMC and with the help of everyone here (not just the instructors!) I hope I can continue to improve and continue to learn and maybe one day become an Instructor myself.

Best wishes to all,
Iain!!
