Hi,

I'm Sammy, 21 years old and living in Belgium.
I just bought my first guitar. It's a lovely Gibson Les Paul Standard Cayenne. She sounds superb, has a nice attack and has the looks I've dreamt off.

Because I had other things going on in my life that didn't allow me to pick up a guitar and start practicing seriously, I had to delay my guitar adventure.
Now the time is right and I'm very motivated to improve gradually and raise my guitarskills. :wink:

I've purchased both Freelicks.net DVD's. I have to say that there's alot covered on those DVD's that I need :wink: So thank you again Kris.

There's so much ahead of me. Once I got my amp I'll be able to start practicing seriously. I'm going to test some amps in a few stores, most likely a Marshall DSL401, TSL601, Line6 Spider II 30w, Vox AC30 and some others.

I have no guitar experience at all, so for me it's quite a challenge to start playing guitar at age 21.

My goal is: improve my guitartechnique and practicing chords, picking, vibrato, bends hammerons and pulloffs so I can start looking at the freelicks licks. For that, I need to work on the basics first.

Favourite music: ZZTOP, Guns N' Roses, Slash, The Eagles, Pink Floyd, Slash's Snakepit, Yngwie, Vai and much more.

Kind regards,

Sammy

You're right Kris.
It's not that I feel too old. It's just that I wish I could have started earlier :wink:

I think starting earlier has advantages, but starting at my age has too. Over the years you learn to be more patient. Especially when things don't always go your way. Perseverance is a better word I think. At least, that's how I feel about it.

I know it will be fun and hard at the same time. But that's something I've always liked.

You can expect reviews of the DVD's in the next weeks.

I really like the looks, otherwise it wouldn't be mine right now :wink:

Making pictures of guitars is always hard as depending on your camera and the amount of (sun)light you can get totally different colours...but the same guitar smile.gif
