hi guys and girls i signed up today and im glad i did as the interactive content is what i need.
i have been playing guitar for about 10 years but have the skills of a 2yo player sad.gif

i had one on one lessons for the first two years then i went through a phase where i only wanted to learn songs i liked not what was a good step forward for me to learn.
so i wasted about 6 years playing metal and got "good" at what i thought were great riffs but i stopped progressing because the hard stuff became to hard and i wasnt dedicated to learn.
stopped playing for a few years but never let the dream die completely.

now i have completely broadened my music tastes (even to country) and i love dream theatre so hearing john petrucci made me want to play again. i have been trying to learn as much theory as possible in the last 6 months but i am much better at learning how things are developed rather than just remembering how things are.

anyway sorry for the super long intro i would classify myself as a beginner i terms of these lessons but i find some of the intermediate stuff ok.
i have a little issue with getting bored playing easy stuff so i try to jump ahead, i know this has been my undoing in the past so i am aware and trying to avoid this, i like the guitar bushido idea because the pressure would make me learn the easy stuff and show you how good i could do it

Cheers for reading my novel. biggrin.gif

Its not very good but this is the first thing i have learnt from this site. thanks Trond Vold!

Hey Wish & welcome to GMC! smile.gif I think you have come to the perfect guitar site. You can manage your practice routine on your own terms. Just be careful not to lose that passion of wanting to play. Nearly all the instructors have mentoring programs if you wish to join one (or two or three as quite a few have done biggrin.gif ). I highly recommend you check out the video chats if you have not already done so. Hope to see you in the chats & forum!

Welcome to GMC!

You chose a great lesson with Trond's rock solo, it's one of my favourite and it's one of the harder "easy" lessons biggrin.gif

See you on the forum and hopefully in the chatroom!
