I'm a 16 (17 on friday) year old guitar player living in the UK. I'm in the middle of getting my A-levels.

I first picked up a guitar about 5 years ago, and after about a year of playing and lack of serious progress i gave up for a good 2 and a half years. About 18 months ago i started playing again and in the past 6 months i've been getting serious! laugh.gif

the shred masterclass lessons on UG along with kris's amazing abilities motivated me to go to freelicks.net and i found my way here. Just payed and now signed up to the forum.

i downloaded your band artifex's album and its cool btw.

i look forward to being able to speak to the master. your an inspiration and i like how you make difficult solos easy to learn and practice.

hello everyone smile.gif

well its not quite as much as steve vai (8+ hours come on!) but im rather happy with the progress i have made since you released those UG lessons. i have probably doubled my skill in a month

out of interest how long do you spend practicing? i mean i know you spend a lot of your time making lessons and performing with artifex, but as far as just sitting down and playing goes, how much?

Welome DanielM The forum is full of usfull info so enjoy!

As for the game i was soo close to posting on here seeing as Kris id the only Swedish person i know (except Sven!) To remind him how victorious we were.

How wrong was i sad.gif SOOO SSOOOO bad at set pieces we threw it way yet the first half we had it.
Kris England will beat the Swedes aprently its 30 odd years since we did! Which means i was 4!
NIGHTMARE

Well you have got a point there, I'm currently not too much into football - even though I used to enjoy things like the world cup...

I guess the guitar has completely consumed me. >:<

Daniel is right!!!

ALL the guys do is kick some balls! Im not saying that gyuitar involves more skill (although it does laugh.gif )..but seriously...the men that play football are a bit too old to be dribbiling around everywhere... Ok...you got me....The World Cup is taking away precious practising time away from me...

(GO BRAZIL!!!!) :mad >:<

why thank you:)

while i enjoy watching the occasional match during the world cup, it confuses me how everyone gets worked up and excited to such an extent, and why fights break out, all because of a ball being kicked about over some grass.

P.S sorry if im ranting today really is not a good day.

I´ve been playing football about 7 years, but when i got 2 injuries i decided to stop football and I found a new friend a "Fender squire stratocaster" :>
Btw I watch nearly every match in the world cup.
