Hi GMC,

yesterday, I signed up here after watching the canon video lesson by Trond.

I'm from Switzerland, playing guitar for about 6 months now. I'm what some people might call a "gear freak" (=I can't play but at least the stuff I can't play with looks good). Reason is I like fine craftsmanship and engineering, so I wander the music store admiring all the nice things they have. Also, I can't blame the equipment for my mistakes that way. smile.gif

Music style isn't set in stone yet. I listen to (almost) all kinds of music, so I don't want to limit myself to one genre.
While I'm no expert on music genres, what I like is roughly:
- Metal ("old school metal" mostly, but also some more modern stuff. Don't like shouting/grunting)
- Rock
- Pop
- Country
- Bluegrass

Just for completeness, I also like some electronic music you can't play with guitars, like house, trance, industrial.

Now to get started, I'm browsing the beginner lessons, learning the "Jumping around - beginner" at the moment.
If someone knows a good song to learn around this level (marked 2), please let me know. The problem with tabs from various sources is that I always reach a point I can't play (too slow or can't fret correctly), so I'd appreciate a song I can play to the end. Electric or acoustic guitar is both fine.

So long

Welcome Sargal!!!
My current Project is some Trance/Ambient based stuff with some Blues style Guitar over the top!!! I've played live with DJ's before now and would say that you certainly CAN play that way with a Guitar!!!!!

Haha, one hotel registered me as coming from Swaziland...not directly next door from here. biggrin.gif

I suspect all the Sw... countries are next to each other in the list and a simple misclick puts you across Europe or even the world. I'm not from Sweden but I understand you completely.
