Hey guys, well im Ben, some of my friends call me Benis (self explanatory nick name, haha) and im from NZ (Auckland to be exact). Hehe, anyone know where New Zealand is? or even live here themselves? I registered on this site a few days ago however i have not made any posts on the forum yet, been too busy checking out the great lessons rolleyes.gif

I have been playing for 2 to 3 years now and i have learnt so much thanks to my current and previous guitar teachers teachers and the internet. I have a basic theory knowledge, i can see how and why most lessons are written. I can even play some of them! ohmy.gif

The way i learned about this site was from the great videos kris put up on www.ultimate-guitar.com (THANKS KRIS!!)

Well, at the moment i pretty much only listen to all the sub genres of metal (Not complaining!! though hopefully this site will help me like other genres just as much)

Currently im in a sort of rock styled band with 3 other members at around the same level as me. We rock hehehe.

My goal at the moment is to play really really fast! cool.gif
Oh! and all the feely stuff too. tongue.gif
I hope to learn MANY different techniques on this site, so then i can spice up the songs that i write. YUM, SPICE.

I do not have anything to record with so i unfortunately not participate in collaborations or anything sad.gif
Though i predict i will be posting on the form quite reguraly till you are all sick of me!! laugh.gif

I also hope this thread does not start any crazy "Tell all the New Zealand jokes you know" hahaha.

Welcome to GMC Benis smile.gif

As for recording, maybe you could get a Toneport GX, they are quite cheap and sound really good, really good stuff for their price, check them out!

Sounds fancy, though i am not in need of any recording equipment at the moment. In this point of time i would prefer to save up for a brand new guitar, hehe.

PS: Thanks for the welcomes! laugh.gif
