Hello everyone I just wanted to take the time to introduce myself.
My name is Allen Larue and I am from West Virgina in the United States. I am 41 and have been playing guitar since I was 14. I haven't really had any formal training and had to teach myself being I live in rural area and there just weren't to many guitar teachers. I currently play in my metal band Stoning Judas.

The reason I joined GMC was to get some new insight on my solo and writing skills. I have found myself in a rut with my soloing and I need to learn some better techniques to push me to a new level of playing. One of the down falls of being self taught is I really don't how to put together my solos effectively. My solos sound good but I always think they are missing that bit of flare I would like to hear in them.

My influences range quite a bit from black metal to old school stuff. I have really been into the bands Arch Enemy and Children of Bodom and others that have that sound. I have tried to incorporate that into my playing with some success but I really don't know what I am doing with it.

I did check out Lian Gerbino's lesson in the style of Cradle of Filth and the A minor lick toward the end of the piece really inspired me. I played around with it for hours making my own licks it was so cool.
