Hi there, how's everyone going? My name is Jordan and I'm from Australia. I am just picking the guitar back up after almost 10yrs away from it....horrible i know. I had a major accident at work one day and sliced up my 3 main fingers on my left hand and needed plastic surgery to repair them and after 2 years they started coming good again. After that I had to sell my original guitar due toi financial issues and only now have i come into a bit of money and the first thing i did was buy my dream guitar, Washburn N4 (Nuno Bettencourt Sig Model).
I am a bit rusty of course but its coming back to me quickly. I am currently learning the guitar vs piano piece. My aim is to be a solid lead guitarist, be able to improvise and construct solo's. My music tastes are Nuno Bettencourt, Dream Theatre, Avenged Sevenfold.....anything Rock or Metal, but uses emotion through guitar.
I think this site is great, the lessons i have briefly seen are exciting and I can't wait till i can really sink my teeth into the more difficult stuff.
Hope everyone is well....
Hello from australia, Cheers! laugh.gif

Hi Cosmin, thanks for the suggestion, i will put that on my list of lessons to get too...List keps getting bigger and bigger....
Fav Extreme album would be 3 Sides to every story...i just love the phrasing and tone of his guitar, he is an amazing player. Have u heard Mourning Widows, one of the bands he formed after Extreme? He does some amazing stuff on guitar in their first album.
I am wrapped with the N4 i have, its perfect size fretboard for my hands and great tone.

Thanks and Cheers! tongue.gif

Hey Mate, sorry to hear about your work accident. That surely is a nightmare for any guitarist.
Hope it's all healing well. And it's good that you're back on track with the right frame of mind.
All the best !! smile.gif

Just saw your question on scales:
I'd say major scale (3 notes per string) and minor pentatonic are your best buds to get those fingers the much needed workout smile.gif
