Hi GMC People,

My name is Lixxx ( well thats obviously a nick though it would be awesome if it was not tongue.gif )

I started playing guitar when I was bout 16 years old and for the following 3 years I was playing almost every minute of the day.
Since I liked the Bluesbrothers Movie ( oddly enough I saw the 2nd one first) especially the ending, where all the guys got together to jam.
I thought thats what I want to. Generally folks in my area played Nirvana and that like, so I had a rly hard time finding a blues band and by hard time I mean I failed to find one xD.

So I took lessons from a friend.

Unfortunately I lost some ( or most infact ) of my discipline when I didnt find ppl to play with.
A few years ago I decided to go at it again and this time for real.
So I started practicing again (secretly cursing my former lack of patience XD )

The thing with learning by yourself that I found VEEERY frustrating is, WHAT THE HELL SHOULD I LEARN sad.gif sad.gif .

Luckily I recently found this site. Im absolutly stunned by its content ( there are a few rotten eggs out there on the net as we all know)
Now Im back to playing everyday every free minute that I have ( well gotta earn money at some point in the day )

Im here mainly to enhance my playing and have a nice chat here and there.

ATM I play heavy stuff like Hardrock Metal but also some blues here and there.

Ok I think thats enuff Info for know ( or forever )

See yall around and keep rockin

Lixxx

First of, thx to all for the warm welcome.

Actually Im already tackling your lesson on inside/outside picking and that is quite a challenge especially the outside picking since Im not used to start with upstrokes apparently. In general I enjoy tapping and sweeping which there are a ton of lessons here. overall I try to put musicality over speed when it comes to soloing so I rly would like some input in that direction ( prolly already a lesson here I have yet to find).

If any of you has got a tip for a sweeping lesson that deals with the synchronization part a little more in depth ( or maybe the secret is to play REALLY slow and practice REALLY long. xD )

Since I neglected rhythm guitar for far too long Im also interested in lessons on riffs chords and the songwriting process in general.

Allright see yall around glad to be part of this community
