Hey guys!

Firstly, I'd like to point out that I am not 80 years old, and I have never starred in a James Bond movie tongue.gif I recently signed up to Guitar Master Class around last week on Saturday, just in time for Todd's live video chat. Man, I was really impressed at what I saw. It was good fun and really informative. In the past week I have been able to attend two of Todd's live video chats as well as one by Ivan Milenkovic - both, I thought were really great. I have been looking up through the various lessons on GMC and it has really opened my eyes and shown me how much I have to learn. It's going to be great! biggrin.gif

As for my history and influences, I have been playing the guitar for around 4 years. I have never had a formal lesson (no time/money sad.gif) so at points I disregarded my playing and have gaps in my knowledge. However, for the past year or two I have been really motivated and I have been playing everyday. I am a big fan of metal music. Listening to this and seeing the creativity that it involved really influenced me to pick up the guitar and start playing it. As I started playing more and more guitar I started to appreciate other types of guitar playing more, and now I am really interested in classical guitar, jazz, blues and fusion playing. I would say that my biggest influence would be Guthrie Govan as he is such a diverse player and can play about any style with perfection, and the fact that you can see he really has a passion for what he does. I am also really influenced by and enjoy players such as Josh Middleton (Sylosis) for his technicality and energy when playing, Olve Eikemo (Immortal) who isn't really the best guitar player but can add so much atmosphere within his songs, and players that I see on YouTube that are just normal people who love guitar.

I look forward to spending time here at GMC, thanks! biggrin.gif

Hey and welcome to GMC smile.gif

Yes, I did enjoy a giggle when I saw your username.. I didn't think the ex 007 was actually here to brush up on his sweep picking but you never know... wink.gif

That's cool that you've caught Todd's chats - they're brilliant !

I've actually just started a thread which is going to be an angoing course with weekly assignments if you're interested ?

https://www.guitarmasterclass.net/guitar_fo...mp;#entry565208

Along with the video lessons and chats here, it may really give you loads of things to help improve your playing smile.gif

Hi friend!! Welcome to the site!! It's great to know that you have been checking the Vchat sessions here... they are always very useful and you will always learn something interesting there.
Let me invite you to my Intensive Technique Course that I'm also giving via Video Chat Sessions every week. You can check the front page schedule to know when the next sessions will take place. You can also find the lesson notes for the previous sessions in my personal board entering HERE.

You can also join my new collaboration called "Power Metal Solo" where you can download a backing track and record a take over it and then post it at the thread to let me mix a full song with everybody's takes and give some feedback.

Enjoy GMC!

Welcome to GMC mate! Take a little bit of time to explore and while you;re at it biggrin.gif I think I got something for you, as you said you are into Guthrie Govan - https://www.guitarmasterclass.net/ls/Guthri...tyle-Arpeggios/

aside from that I am also hosting a special workshop where you can learn a new lick each week as well as interesting ways to apply it, check it out at Cosmin's Licks Workshop

We are here to help, so don't shy away from asking anything you'd like to know wink.gif

cheers

Cosmin
