Then,after a while , i bay a cheap guitar,i simple learning book ,and me records from ,DEEP PURPLE ,BLACK SABBATH,LED ZEPPELIN !
No PC,wasn't there !!
So ,no one say HOW you have to hold your hand's ,the plectrum,to set your fingers ,i DIT IT LIKE IT COMES !!!
Then ,with a couple friends ,we got to look for a teacher,and we found one !!! laugh.gif
The day from us first lesson,we wait and wait,!damn ,where is he ?
Then the bell whas sounding ,we open the door and there whas a POLICE officer!!..noooooo tongue.gif it whas the teacher!!ha ha
We where young ,so he try to imprest us by his uniform i ghues !!
After a lot of bla bla,we get our lesson !..the intro from SMOKE ON THE WATER !!
Wen we practise that with NO direction ,he whas sitting by our wives!..THAT whas HIS intrest mad.gif
After a couple times we fired him !! the punk !!..and we seperated our ways ,me mates gived up,and i messed on for YEARS!!
Played in a couple band's who where al beginners like me ,and try just to impress!Whaa ha ha ! stupid now ,but yeah !
There whas no way i get sommething nice out me guitar,so it HAS to be the equipment,whas i saying to meself! laugh.gif
So,makes things chorter!..i bay COMPRESSERS,DISTORTION pedals,and EVERYTHING that whas helped me to get i little smooth sound!
But ,NOTHING whas helped ,!! mad.gif even verry expensive giutars,MALMSTEEN fender,Gilberd ibanez,Nuno,no4

Hi Guy, I can totally understand the way you feel. I can't believe that guitar instructor, dressing like a policeman and then spending more time chatting to your wives... ohmy.gif

Often, when we feel that we're not getting good at something we look outside at other factors: It must be the amp, it must be the guitar, it must be the exercises... but the most important part is the one thing that we are always avoiding. Just do it. Sit down and play. And play and play.

It is a shame that nobody was there to teach you some basic chords. After learning a few basic chords, you would be free to just develop rhythm and listen to songs and try to figure them out with those chords shapes you knew.

However, everything happens for a reason and sometimes we have to just be at the right place at the right time to learn certain lessons and you're obviously in the right place now. In fact, we could even look upon learning at a later age as being more beneficial because now you are more determined and have more focus. This means you are less likely to waste time and you will put more effort in because it means more to you. smile.gif

You've already shown me how much improvement you've made with vibrato.. some people go a lifetime without ever developing this.

I'm glad you found GMC and even happier that we are able to help you. Let us know what you're working on next if you need any guidance ok ? smile.gif
