Hi All!

My name is Marshall, I'm 25 and from San Francisco, California. I've been playing guitar for a long time but I plateaued in high school and haven't progressed much since then. For the past 3 years I have been mainly playing acoustic fingerstyle guitar because it is both technical and challenging. The problem though is that I do not listen to that type of music in my day to day so I was very prone to burnouts fairly often. I don't jump in my car ready to listen to the soothing sounds of John Fahey, hehe. Basically, I want to ROCK.

I've made a decision to start playing metal and my first step was to purchase a metal axe. Attached is a photo of a guitar I received today: A Schecter Hellraiser C1 w/ Floyd Rose. I can't describe in words how excited I am right now to get home and plug it in (to my podxt and headphones hehe). Living in an apartment in SF means you cannot have an amplifier in the house.

I am putting myself on a one year plan, with GMC as the centerpiece. My focus is going to be on theory and technique and practice practice practice with a metronome metronome metronome. From initial browsing from a stylistic and skill perspective I am going to start on Lian's lessons. I will be recording my progress and I am excited to see where I am on November 18, 2009.

In terms of musical taste, I do listen to a lot of different genres but the unifying factor is that everything I listen to is genuinely good music by genuinely good musicians. From artists such as Sam Cooke, Roy Orbison and Stevie Wonder to Necrophagist, My Bloody Valentine and Shudder to Think, I can sincerely say that I love music of all types. My inspiration as a guitarist includes Muhammed Suicmez, Johnny Mar of the Smiths and Lindsey Buckingham from Fleetwood Mac.

I am very happy to be apart of this community. After checking out multiple guitar sites on the internet, I can say that GMC unequivocally contains the most polite, mature and skilled guitarists on the internet. I look forward to my interactions with you all in the future.

The picture is crappy, but alas I am proud.
