O' boy! I can see there's some strong feelings here! smile.gif

I just want to say that everyone is entitled to their own opinion of course.

But even if you don't like the Yngwie stuff I'd still recommend you give it a little attention because there are certain advantages with that kind of musical approach, which you could apply to your own style.

For example the "playing by ear-technique" lets you play in tune, even if your guitar goes out of tune.
I believe that's valuable to all guitarists.

If you're referring to me, my conclusion was that even though I'm not into yngwie and all that, I'm really looking forward to your lessons because of your way of approaching music in general. (and the "playing by ear-technique" seems especially great). So, just to make it clear, I'm really looking forward to your lessons laugh.gif

Ryan, I have not planned any classical lessons. But if there are requests for it I’ll take it into consideration for sure! smile.gif

my mother introduced several musical instruments to me, mainly the piano since she was a piano teacher at the music academy. I learned how to really listen to the notes and developed “relative pitch”, which basically means you could figure out how to play a solo just by listening to it.


Hey Marcus! My mom also worked as a piano teacher in a music academy until we moved to another country. Now she teaches piano in a music school!
I was in music since the age of 2 (at least as a listener). As soon as i learned how to walk my parents were taking me to theater a few times each week! My elder brother finished the music academy for clarinet so i always listened to him practicing for many hours each day hehe Later i started playing piano but was not too interested. My father is symphonic orchestra conductor and has a perfect pitch so i guess i got it from him!! It helps hell of a lot in my playing! I am glad there are more of music families around!

Welcome again!! smile.gif
