Hi,
my name is Pedro and im 25 years old.
I play guitar for about 7 years but until now it was just a thing without any goals
and i decided to change that, because music for me always was a world language for feelings.
Every one understands it. I have no special music direction. The only thing which is important to me is that it needs to be real. Ok... there is music i dont like.. Techno for example. So what realy is important to me is the message in the music.
But of course there are some guitar gurus i realy respect and i look up to.
for example Joe Satriani, Steve Vai, Slash, Kirk Hammet, Jimi Hendrix (Not his technique but his improvisation talent), Van Halen,... and new to me is.. a very special guy.. which im allready thankful for his lessons.. Muris Varajic,....
In 2 days i enveloped more then in many months. And not only because of that.. his style and feeling is realy great wink.gif.

Ok maybe i introduce my guitar as well tongue.gif im realy proud of it. I have a Fender Stratocaster which is more then 20 years old and the tone is wow.. realy.. it was 10 years in the case and when i started to play i couldnt believe it.. it was perfectly in tune.. it has a non-interchangeable blues sound.. So thats what i did i just played 1 blues scale over and over again.
You cant imagine how much variations there are to play only 1 scale.. lol i tried some realy dificult things but i was not realy motivated i started some songs and ended up in finding new ones i would like to play. So Guitar playing for me was sadly only a 5 minutes escape from reality day by day. Now it changed i realy like playing hours on it.. but not only that.. i train.. i never did.. but now that i see it works.. if you go the right path you realy can get much better. Its only the path which matters.

So GMC is perfect for me. I can pick up what i need. Maybe i dont pefectly know what i need, but i found the right direction. Thanks to the GMC team.


PS: I often sleep with my guitar too tongue.gif

Greetz to all
Pedro

Im only honest. There are many good technique based guitarists. But it is realy rare to find guitarists which put there focus on feeling the music that good as you do. So im the one to thank you because you do your best to make the musicians live easier and beauty. I think it is this combination which motivates me. Not only envelope technique but doing it without having the fear to lose the focus on what real matters, feeling the music! smile.gif
