Im Tucker Green, 33 years old, and a beginner on guitar. I'm from Sundown TX, grew up in a ranching family, which is why in about a year and a half I will graduate with an MBA in Accounting. Thus, casterating calves and tagging bore goats will no longer be included in the scope of my job duties. I look forward to placement with an accounting firm where I will begin a fulfilling journey everyday staring out of an office cubicle in long intervals, watching people walk by and wondering why I'm not Indiana jones searching for lost relics in far a way lands. smile.gif

What I want to accomplish: At 20, to play like SRV. At 25, I knew 3 chords, and Satriani was who I would become. At 30, I pawned my guitar. NOW: To play power chords hard and fast in ultra power metal rhythmic fashion, and chilling grooves - over and over repetatively at extremely high volume, with the most devistatingly wicked drum machine thumping the walls to the point of structural weakness, here and there stream off on some kind of whippin' lead, then right back to the fantastically insane power chord riffs comming off so fast and hard, that at some point the atomic molecules of my guitar burst out from within! biggrin.gif

I love this site, So glad to have a guitar again, and complete forum that offers a sense of community, support, and fantastic opportunity to learn! biggrin.gif

Gear...

Guitar: Jet Black Ibanez EZ Pawn edition (the EZ Pawn sticker is fused over the name of the model ?)

Amp: Crate amp w/distortion knob, 3 spliced wires from screw hole feature

Hey Tucker, welcome to GMC - loved the intro !!

I must admit that you're previous ranching life sounds pretty cool !! smile.gif

If you're beginning your steps on learning some metallic power chords may I recommend having a look at some of Lian Gerbino's work. He's done a lot of varied metal based lessons which are intended to be manageable and not insane !

https://www.guitarmasterclass.net/instructor/Lian-Gerbino/

I've got an ongoing weekly course running called Guitar Bushido, with 3 levels of difficulty..

I give a new Task each week for people to learn and record their own version and share their takes and their experiences whilst learning it. There's a cool metal rhythm lesson which we're doing at the moment here https://www.guitarmasterclass.net/guitar_fo...showtopic=43171

Feel free to jump in !

Hi Tucker!! Welcome to GMC! I'm working on Power Metal lessons... you can already find the Helloween Style lesson and there are more lessons on the way! It would be really good if you can record yourself in the near future. It will allow us to help you with some feedback!
I'm also giving Vchat lessons every Fridat at 19 hs at the Chat Forum.

Enjoy GMC! smile.gif

Will and patience, backed by the dynamic strength of the instructors here, has in just 2 weeks absolutely revitalized my motivation, and increased my confidence in the highest degree. Thank you Sinisa, most people wouldn't admit it, but having a positive support network even if it is not often tapped, plays a paramount role in a person's ability to continue the charge into any endeavour that readily offers challenges and discouraging blows to the stomach. biggrin.gif Call me a wimp, but the good old corny "you can do it!" at the right moment gets me fired up! Haha smile.gif

That's the spirit biggrin.gif !! "You can do it" phrase, no matter how corny it looks - always works ! You see,I have a lot of students (in private), many of them have that "CAN'T DO IT" attitude from the very beginning,even when it comes to trivial things !!! They are my favorite, really smile.gif . Do you know how long I need to convince them otherwise? No more than 10 minutes,practically. I'm not a wizard, but if you put a thing to the right place you will realise that everything is possible. I'm always pissed of by the "line of least resistance" or
'Giving Up' phrase. So,"You can do it" works as much as you're willing to put yourself in it wink.gif !

Gosh Sinisa, This may offer some gratification, I very much hope it does; I used to be a very "can't do it" person, which spelled the end to so many opportunities to grow and enrich my scope as a human being. Well, thanks to the patience and fortitude of one special person, during a difficult set of events, that attitude was stripped away from me, and I am so grateful to that person and always will be! You sir, are planting seeds and quite possibly changing the lives of many "can't do it" students, who are encouraged by your encouragement, and then see they can do it! smile.gif Ah man, more motivators would be good for the world, for real haha! biggrin.gif

Hopefully for you. I spent about the same time studying but can't say it improved my ability to fund a shopping spree.

I know what you mean Tucker smile.gif . Weird bit for me is I have an MBA and a PhD amongst other things but earn less now than when I only had a BSc.
