Hi there!

Beware: This post may contain many errors or typos smile.gif

I am 25 years old and live in germany. I started playing the guitar at the age of twelve or somewhere around that. I began with some classical stuff on a western guitar, had lessons for about a year or two. Then i stopped playing for a few months and restarted with a half-year course in some school near by. After that, again, i stopped playing for a while.

When i was 16 i had some luck (i think it was luck smile.gif ) and could trade my old western guitar for an 80s Charvel E-guitar.

From that on i was eager to learn to play again. But with school and everything it was at the level of an hour a week.

3 years ago, i again got motivated to learn some more stuff. I spend a lot of money to fix up my stuff and even bought a book. smile.gif From there on i am at about 5-6 hours of practise a week. This is practically where i am stuck. I never played in a band, i can play two or three whole songs but i cant improvise or jam very good. A year ago i decided to put some pressure onto myself by regulary buying some expensive equipment (you bought that stuff, you have to use it wink.gif ). So today i can play better than most beginners but i still miss the whole improvising, jam-along stuff , soloing etc.

Thats why i came to gmc. I hope to find people who can help me get better and understand my guitar-related problems.

Now i wrote a lot of stuff about me, if you want to know more, just ask. smile.gif

EDIT: Omg, im so stupid... forgot some of the most important infos. My preferred musical style is somewhere in the metal direction. Personal favorites are Gammar Ray, Helloween and stuff like Iron Savior, additional influences: Iron Maiden, Hammerfall, Edguy, DIe Apokalyptischen Reiter and many more. Besides that i sometimes like the acoustic metal stuff like Blind Guardians "Bards Song"...

Hi and welcome! Hope you still got the 80's Charvel guitar, good quality back then at almost no cost at all.

Welcome to the site man!. I've seen you like all Kai Hansen projects. I love him too!. He gives a different and special touch to everything that he does. It's amazing, but, when you hear something not knowing that is something from him, you instantly know that it's him!. Hope to see you soon in chat wink.gif

You totaly got it, i am a huge Hansen fan. He is my alltime favorite guitar player and does an amazing work in all of his projects. So its some sort of goal for me to play a lot of his stuff. Especially gamma ray and iron saviour stuff, or the early helloween songs he wrote.
