Hello GMC, i´m a 40 year old guy from sweden who just bought a guitar and amplifier and i signed up to get some help and inspiration during my quest to learn to play that beautiful 6 string.. I am totally clueless when it comes to guitars, chords and scales, but i really love the electric guitar as a instrument and i really want to learn to play it.

My favourite guitarists include Gary Moore (he was my first guitar-hero) Yngwie Malmsteen, Jeff Waters, George Lynch, Dave Mustaine (really underrated guitarist/writer) and Eddie Van Halen.

Now you know roughly what kind of rockmusic i am inspired by, i am not aiming to be as good as the above mentioned ones, but i am going to try to become a descent rhythmguitar player that can write some own stuff.

See you all on the forums and prepare yourself for many questions smile.gif
