Hello All,

Just signed up last night. 41 yrs old, been playing since I was 16. I have always learned songs from tab and have a very small understanding of theory. I cannot improvise to save my life. Been playing with a group of people and realized how limited I am and decided to put the time in to learn theory and technique that I never did.

I listen to Metal, Old School Punk, Rockabilly, Prog Rock, anything with a guitar and a good beat really.

Guitar is a Epiphone Les Paul Custom (2001 Korea). Sound is through a Digitech RP255.

Looking forward to digging in to some of these lessons (starting with Pentatonic lessons) and posting my first REC video.

Thanks,
Brian S.

Thanks all for the Welcome. I am a little overwhelmed by the lessons here, gotta pick one to start with.

My Epiphone is black.

Here is where I am starting at today, can only get better right?

Welcome aboard man! smile.gif If you have any questions regarding lessons, let me know.

I advise you check out my Pentatonic Workshop Series Level 1. It's a very good lesson for learning pentatonic scale.

If you need a lesson plan, let me know as well! smile.gif

BTW what is that YT video, is that you playing?

I think my work might have a problem if I join your chat session on Thursday. It looks like it is at 10:30 AM my time :-)

Favorite Players, that changes but right now I would include: Hendrix, Satriani, Slash, Mike Ness, and Jay Mascis.
