Hi everone,

I stumbled accross GMC by accident looking for some help to on teaching my son play guitar (he's only 8). After looking at things I decided to sign up and boy am I glad.

I'm 35 now and played in various bands over the years & always thought I could shred out a few things or two but I've probably learned more from this site in the last week than I have ever.

I've always played by ear which helped in some respects but never learned even the basics of the theory (too keen to learn the killer shreds from the guitar tabs in mags cool.gif ). I'm still guilty of this as I need to know the basics to help me know what and why I'm actually playing. But the guys are soo damn good at GMC I can't help going to those advanced sweepig lessons. I could never get it right but in just a week I actally sweeping!!!!!!!! YEEEESSSSS.

Im feeling refreshed again after not playing for 4 years. Is anyone else in the same position as me as I can play some advanced stuff but on the other hand cant play some of the basics (sounds strange?).

I need to be more strict with myself but need to taylor a training regime to learn the basics of theory as well as unleahing some of the more fun stuff. HELP PLEASE.

My guitars I have are a Jackson soloist custom ltd edition lighting (built in 1987) and a garish desert yellow Ibanez Jem from the early 90's. None of them are playable at the moment and in the process of repair so I'm playing on my sons cheap (but reasonable) Yamaha ERG 121C. I play this though my Marshall JCM 2000 Dual Super Lead along with my Zoom GFX 707 effects pedal.

Cheers guys, glad to be a member of the GMC family
