Hi,

I am Markus from Germany. Finally i am a member! I've been lurking around this site for like half a year now, and always wanted to join. So I created a paypal account only to notice i still can't joind without a valid credit card. now i even got me a credit card for guitarmasterclass ...
but i must say this is worth it! i've joined yesterday evening and have been playing guitar the whole night.

I am 23 years old and started playing guitar in 2002. Before that i had some keyboards to play on, but never had any lessons at all. so now i'm pretty good playing by ear but my technique lacks a lot (at least i think so).
At one point i stumbled across economy picking and thought this was the way to go. later i kind of felt it actually hindered me in developing speed and didn't quite sound as good as alternate picking.
when i first started to use a pick (i started with a classic guitar) i held it kind of like Lian Gerbino. a friend of mine said it was wrong so i changed the grip. seeing Lian play guitar i think i should have sticked with it.

some weeks ago someone joined complaining that his thumb was totally flexible. i have exactly the same problem. with such a thumb i think applying pressure on the back side of the neck needs a lot more muscles. that's why for a long time my hands got really tired even after playing only for some minutes.

oh and i've been reading many of the theory lessons and learned a lot of it. thanks for them!

so what i want to put a lot of energy in will be hand synchronization, finger independence, picking technique and i want to learn more jazz-stuff.

i'm happy to be here, so see you around!
- Markus

Welcome to GMC markus smile.gif

About the thumb. I was planning on visiting my doctor the coming week for something completely unrelated, but I'll also talk with him about the thumb issue and see what his advice is. I'll be sure to post it, because it might benefit everyone on the site with similar issues.
