Well, I am not sure if I am where I should be, playing wise, after 2 years of being a member here, but today is my number 2 anniversary.

WOW that was fast. huh.gif


24 months ago, I figured I just needed to polish up some areas, since I had been playing for two decades before. Bringing in that many years of experience must mean things will go pretty fast. Boy, was I wrong. sad.gif The first thing I figured out was everything I had been doing was wrong. 80% of it. Tough thought to process right there, my friends. I felt like a beginner, and maybe I was.

“Thinking I would be shredding in 6 months” turned into, “It is going to take months to go even a little faster.”


It has been a fun two years and I can say I have learned 4 facts I did not know before GMC. No one had every told me these important things. wink.gif

1. Nothing matters but technique and feel. The rest is easy.
2. If you do not make playing fun, your time will be wasted.
3. Speed comes only from accuracy.
4. GMC can do what I need it to do. ( Well, I guess Kris did say that) laugh.gif


Anyway good luck to everyone and a very special thanks to the instructors as they are all changing peoples lives through music. smile.gif
