Hi,
my name is Florian, i´m 16 years old (since 1th May ) , from Germany.

I´ve been playing guitar now for a year and i got really addicted to it.

I play 5-6 hours a day (after school) , sometimes in one piece or
sometimes with breaks (Meeting Friends, Doing Stuff outside...).
I realized early when doing regular guitar lessons (Me with Teacher),
that I needed more, I bought guitar magazines, read websites and
finally found GMC. At the time I registered here i wasnt really
able to use the website i had no knowledge of what to learn now
an where to go. I started also with a German Guitar Book and
since then i never came back to GMC. So... the Guitar Book
was done, a regular lesson was still not enough and i came back to
GMC.

I read here everything every Day i check out Andrews Theory Lessons
they´re awesome! I learned so much and did some playing lessons
for Rhythmn and Stuff. One day i went to Andrews Lesson about the
Scales and Stuff, I decided to learn major and minor pentatonic (incl. blue) scales.

So i nailed down Pentatonic after 2 Weeks (I really forced myself to!) and then
another thing showed how great GMC is.

I found the Pentatonic Workshop and i do every exercise (workshop 1 and 2 (going on 3 soon))
twice a day (after school / before sleeping) and it really improves my playing and timing.

I´m also addicted to the Appregiated - I Got Rhythm Guitar lessons (starting lesson 3 soon).

Its just a great place to be and the forum is really helpfull.

Now for everyone who has made it this far some nice pictures of my gear

I started with a crappy strat copy and a sort of cheep chinese amp

last years summer i bought a Epiphone Les Paul Custom an a Marshall JCM 900 (50W valves).


(clickable)

I wasted some time playing World of Warcraft and sold my account to a friend that brought me 450 Euros,
i also kept my christmas money (150€), i earned some money working (100€) and i was given 300€ for
my Birthday from everyone in the Family smile.gif!

It only took a second to think what to do with this much money, i wanted something i would keep forever as mine,
something personal and something amazing... a great guitar. (the epiphone really got used and not the good way of used wink.gif))

So i went to a big guitar Store in Cologne and fell in Love with

THIS ONE

Fender American Stratocaster Deluxe HSS


(clickable)

( i got very much black light in my room and these stars on the pictures a fluorescent)

So thank you for reading, hope you enjoyed and sorry for my bad school english laugh.gif .

Germany is very nice in the summer even the last winter was horrible.

My favourite music is (reggae/ska/punk/rock/(old german hip hop not this gangsta n stuff))

I got kind of a Band our Bass Guy has never took a single lesson and is now working
his self through a book and our Singer is more our Entertainer than singer biggrin.gif!

Thank you for the nice greetings if you have any questions
