Sup fellow metal heads!?

Kristofer - this is a awesome site you have put together. I have been playing for about 10 years and my first lesson here was relearning the Pentatonic scale shapes. Your vids and explanations are super easy to follow. I can already see an improvement. THX!

Here's a little history:

Bought my first guitar (black Peavey Predator) in 1990 - I was 12 - and started taking lessons. Heard Metallica's ..And Justice For All record (still my fav) and instantly wanted to be like Kirk Hammett. Bought Kill 'Em All, Ride The Lightning and Master of Puppets and tried to learn every song (I'm still working on it BTW). From the Black album through Load, ReLoad, St. Anger - Metallica has been my biggest influence throughout this whole crazy ride!

Other influences include Randy Rhoads (RIP), Jimi Hendrix (RIP), Slash, Soundgarden, STP, Audioslave (yeah I am a huge Chris Cornell fan too), Shinedown, Buckcherry, Godsmack, Disturbed, System Of A Down...

I regrettably put the guitar down after high school - still can't remember why - but recently picked it up again about a year ago and can't put it down (I would wear it to work if I could)!

C-ya 'round!!!

Peace.

Thx guys. I knew pity would work tongue.gif The good thing about regret is that I have learned a lot from it. I promise never to put down my guitar again.
