Welcome Marcus, its funny, i first found out about BG on this very site, but i was back a good 9 months now i think. I think your music is great, but this also opens up opportunities for GMC. It allows for your bands songs to be learned, which is a big plus, and it also may attract other professional famous guitarists to the site

Im really looking forward to some of your lessons, but, please, buy an ibanez tongue.gif

Edit: By the way, when's the next tour happening, and is there any chance at all of you coming to Scotland.
And when i say Scotland, i mean Edinburgh, not Glasgow, becuase they get all the good gigs...


We just finished an 18 months worldtour in November so don't expect us to go on tour anytime soon, first we have to come up with a new album. And about Ibanez... rolleyes.gif I guess I will stay with my Gibsons wink.gif

Welcome Marcus! Not too familiar with Blind Guardian but I snagged a few songs off of Zune marketplace [CDs take weeks sometimes to get overseas] and I must say you guys are pretty incredible. I liked the warm-up lesson and look forward to more!

Lol, we played some Festivals last year together with Dream Theater but somehow I can't remember him crawling at my feet... wink.gif

@ John: Our style? It depends on who you talk too, I read threads in Forums already where people described us as Speedmetal, Powermetal, Progressivemetal, Heavymetal, Epicmetal... I would call us metal :-)

Good question, I would pick Ronnie James Dio and Tony Iommi, Dio has always been my fave singer and Iommi was my biggest influence when I started to play guitar, so it was pretty special to meet them.

Welcome Marcus smile.gif I watched your first lesson and I really like the exercises in there. Think I'll put at least one of them in my warming up routine. I hope you enjoy the teaching and the learning yourself and that you'll make lessons suitable for beginner and intermediate level guitarist too wink.gif I love your rhythm parts on BG records and I think I can learn alot from lessons that tackle the basic techniques (and beyond tongue.gif)

Have a nice stay/day!

Hello Marcus! Welcome to GMC! I'm very glad that you are doing lessons here. I still remember when I listened "Imaginations... for the first time in my walkman and it blow my mind. It would be awesome if you do lessons telling how do you work at the studio and also how you work your guitar arrangements and duets.
I saw Blind Guardian in Argentina during the "Nightfall in the midle-earth" tour and I was surprised of the presicion of the whole band.

It's a pleassure to have you here. smile.gif
