Hello venerable GMC members!
I've been lurking on this site from something like 10 days, but because of a very important test on the university I forced myself not to register before passing it. Now to my surprise I have passed the above mentioned exam, and so rewarded myself with 3 month GMC subscription tongue.gif

Big thanks to Markus Siepen for having a blog! I had an idea to search for a Blind Guardian guitar pick on the net, and instead found Markus blog, where he mentioned GMC, and thanks to that I am here now.

I view myself as the "worst scenario" guitarist..
I have my guitar for few years, yet there are big gaps in this time between "longer playing periods".
I always was more of a chord player, that learned songs that could also be singed for the joy of the ladies wink.gif
Now I also played some more advanced stuff, solos also, yet I have NO idea about theory at all, I just learned from guitar pro/normal tabs/rarely when something was easy from hearing.

So I have some experience in playing the guitar, but the advantages can be overpowered by the sheer number of mistakes that I am used to. I think that I must start from the very basics in order to get rid of these habits, yet it isn't easy sad.gif

I hope that GMC will keep me motivated, help me to "break the circle".

I am looking forward to be a part of this great community also, of course:)

Marek "Gorim"


PS: if it comes to music, my most beloved bands are: Blind Guardian, Deamons & Wizards, Metallica ( will see them live on Wednesday ). Yet there are so many great bands that I like, that it would take to much time to type them here, and as my post is most probably 5x to long already, I shall do it another time;)

Welcome! I was in pretty much your exact same situation (almost) a year ago when I joined. I feel I've improved hugely since then, I think you will too! There were a lot of bad habits to overcome. Just don't push yourself, start out slow and you'll be doing great in no time smile.gif

Thanks guys!
Yeah I read few lessons written by Andrew already, few more times and I will remember something! wink.gif

I need to make myself a nice plan of lessons, as I am good at realizing those.. ( that's why I never do them )

Have a virtual ale on my virtual tab;)
