Hi GMC!

I'm Chakie (aka Jan) from Finland and about 36 years old. I'm been "playing" for 1.5 years now but haven't really gotten anywhere yet. My playing is mostly on the level "can play 10 bad sounding chords per minute" and "wtf is a scale?". I don't really have anyone to play with nor anything to strive for that has so far motivated me to get better, so I hope to find some motivation here from GMC. laugh.gif

So far I must say that I love the lessons, they are by far the best ones I've seen on the 'net. Awesome work! Some way to get the backing tracks to my iPod would be nice though, I don't have a computer where I "play".

Couldn't agree more with Fran. smile.gif As far as the backings goes, they are copyrighted material so not meant to be downloaded. However, if you are working a a particular lesson and need the backing, most instructors will be more than happy to send them to you. Good luck and hope to see you around!

Heh, so am I. smile.gif I'm actually wearing a Turisas t-shirt today. Somehow this country produces a lot of weird metal bands. Personally I'm all metal too and listen to everything ranging from classic heavy metal to death and the various "scream metal" variants.

Now, if I could only learn to play some proper chugga-chugga-chugga I'd be happy. biggrin.gif
