Hey everyone. I am a 16 year-old aspiring metal guitarist.
I've been playing a few years, but only lately have I been playing a lot like I used to. I've been in a few bands, but have only played two actual shows.
Anyway, I listen to a lot of music, and I collect CD's and stuff. I have over 50GB of music on my computer and 100's of Cd's. My guitar playing reflects that, I think. While it's mostly metal, anything interesting and creative I like.
Some of my favorite bands are Arsis, Persefone, Shaolin Death Squad, Aeon of Horus, Cynic, BtBaM, and Trivium. (Couldn't possibly name them all)

I work a lot, but am homeschooled, so I have plenty of time in the day to play guitar. I would like to make myself a practice schedule or something. I really want to become a great musician. Any tips would be greatly appreciated. I also love to talk about music and gear.

I'm not a social person really, so I don't know what else to say. Ask about anything else!

Haha, just finished watching Super Troopers, and the shenanigans scene cracked me up.
So, what is the best way to get started here? Just pick a lesson and go to town or what?

I don't think I have seen that movie but I know of it. I also like Tom foolery and Hijinxs.

As far as picking a lesson and going to town? That is what I do but it is not what most will recommend. It really depends on your playing level. Pick a lesson that looks doable and post up a vid if you can. Someone here will home school ya.

Hi and welcome to GMC!
Pick a lesson and get started, that's what I did and still do. Just go to the guitar lessons and have a look at the metal section, I think you'll be happy and quite busy for some time with that.
