Hello everyone!

I'm Richard Kovacs, an 18 yrs old guitar player (well, mostly a wannabe yet) from Budapest, Hungary. I've been playing for about 4 years now and I'm absolutely self-taught from the very beginning. I'll write a few things about my playing and style, so that you'll know me better smile.gif. Since I've broken free from my power chord-era (that happened after half a year of playing, luckily for me) I'm trying hard to look into and learn from every styles and genres of guitar-oriented music (from jazz through rock to the darkest, heaviest metal). The styles I like the most are blues-rock and progressive rock from the 70ties (Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd) and instrumental rock from today virtuosos (Satch, Vai, Yngwie), but I'm totally open for less common and not so standard things as well. If I look at my weaknesses I always realize that I have many, many problems with my theory knowledge and playing technics (most of these problems come from the fact that I never went to a teacher) and these are the main things I'd like to improve at, but I'm also in a great need of inspiration to get my improvising ability better and my playing a lot more colorful.

A funny thing about how I got to know GMC - I was a member of the online forum of Yngwie Malmsteen, and I was lucky enough to get to know Marcus Lavendell from there, who is also on my MSN list since then and we're in contact. He told me once that he's an instructor at this site, and I felt like I really should be a member there as I always loved his style and approach. While browsing the site I was like "oh my god, these guys are probably amongst the world's best guitarists and guitar teachers". Sadly, I had no chance to register for a long period of time but finally, I've managed to join your amazing community, with world-class guitar players and tons of thoughtful and helpful people smile.gif

Thanks for reading through my long introduction (yeah, I tend to talk or write too much sometimes, sorry biggrin.gif)! I'm really happy to be part of GMC now smile.gif

"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
