Greets from Finland! I recently decided to pick up my guitar again after a ten year (give or take a year or two) break. Before that I used to play guitar in a punk/grunge band and bass in a death/thrash band, so my playing was somewhat straightforward fast blasts. I never got the hang of playing leads, either.

Now for my "second coming" I'm trying to start from the bottom and focus a lot more on the theory behind the instrument as well.

Anyways, thanks for what looks like a great site and some excellent lessons. I'm looking forward to actually practicing instead of just playing this time around!

Well, I did strum the occasional chord now and then, but I guess I just got frustrated because my playing didn't seem to progress anywhere. Which isn't a big surprise, since I didn't spend much time practicing anything new that might have helped. I plan to change this now.
