how many people are going to read this??? Man I am getting nervous.... maybe later...
NO... it has to be now or never.....

HI EVERYONE...

The name's Igorrr (actually Andreas but everybody calls me Igorrr or Shabba these days... long story ... no time....)

I'm 28 years old, German but living in Brazil since I fell in love and got married to a hot brazilian chic... cool.gif

I started playing the guitar with 13 and since then always had the dream of becoming a rock musician... I had the talent BUT....

IMPORTANT MESSAGE TO EVERYONE:
I read how Kris told the story about him not having talent and how work brought him to where he is now... Well I can tell you kind of the other side of the story.
When I started to play guitar everything came so easily. After 5 months I already had a band and started gigging. I already played solo in that short time. I was deemed the best guitarist of the school when I was 15...
BUT I AM LAZY... since then I never really got better. I had an extremely fast start due to being "talented", but not having the discipline to really learn and move onward I kind of got stuck... that much actually that I lost interest, although never loosing the passion for music, but feeling frustrated that I have found my limits and not the guts to finally work on them....

HOW DID I FIND GMC:
I actually don't know... I found Workshop Live faster. When I turned 28 last december I kind of reflected to where I am now and where I always wanted to be. I realized if I want to become a great guitarist I have to do something. The same as with quitting to smoke it's better to do it sooner than later if you want to reap the benefits.
To keep it short since working a lot overtime I am not really able to dedicate to a fixed schedule with a real teacher so I searched the internet. I found and I liked Workshop Live, but I never really found it into their community and the lessons all seemed more like in a dictionary.
When I found GMC (aside from being way cheaper ;-)) I also saw how organic it is. Instead of having just one lesson that teaches sweeping there are many lick lessons that use it. Making it much more interesting for me since who likes practising half a year the exactly the same thing....

TODAY (one month with GMC)... Well I always wanted to learn sweeping... I started off last month I was playing the 16th sweeps at 80bpm and today I reached 126bpm. This by only practising them 20 minutes every day. Work does pay off....

I am getting excited to play the guitar again and GMC did not play a small part in it. So thank you already...
