Hello all,

My name is Mike I live on an Island in the Torres Strait North of Queensland Australia called Thursday Island. I have been playing guitar for 36 years. I have recently dedicated myself back to the instrument after a 1.5 year hiatus. I originally lived in Chicago IL, in the U.S. and played in bands and wrote a lot of original material. I still write material however I can't sight read or basically read notes at all. However i am not here for that. I am here to increase my knowledge of playing and continue to grow on the instrument. I am also here to improve my right hand technique, yes I want to able to shred. biggrin.gif
I also want to improve my chord knowledge and theory as well. I played a lot of hard rock and metal even experimented with some avant garde Jazzier things. Anyways I am rambling, I am pleased to be here let the learning begin.

Peace Mike

Let the shredding begin.

"Think of a guitar solo as a paragraph. You need a clear beginning, a middle, and an end. Look at musical phrases like sentences, and make sure you break them up using punctuation—or space. You pause naturally when conversing, right? If you don't, you'll bore the listener. The same thing will happen with your audience if your solo is one dimensional. You'll wear them out and lose their attention." —Tom Principato

Thanks everyone I am very excited to find this place. I spent some time yesterday just browsing around and there are some incredible players here. I warmed up with Danilo Capezutto's hand synchronization exercises and I noticed a difference immediately. I have always wanted to dedicate myself totally to my instrument and now I have that opportunty, waiting for my residency in Oz so I can work. What better way to spend the time then attaining the skill level I have wanted all of these years?
