Hey everyone, Shawn here.. Well let me see, I been playing guitar off and on ever since I was 7. I spent most of my time playing and practicing wrong, now I am working twice as hard to break the bad habits out. I am bound and determined to master this guitar and not let it master me.

I like all styles of music, as of late I have been leaning more towards learning to play jazz/blues.

Hi Shawn, welcome to GMC! smile.gif This is the place to be to rid you of those pesky bad habits. The instructors & so many members are incredibly knowledgeable. I'm a huge fan of the video chats & hope you can make some of those. The resources here are plentiful. Seems like there has been quite an interest in Jazz lately (I'm excited about that!), check out the Jazz Licks in the "Lick of the Day". Make sure you click the ">> More" next to "Featured Content" on the GMC main front page for loads of stuff. See you in the forum!

Which lessons have you started working on?

Oh, & that's some good looking gear you've got there.

Gary

Hey Shawn, welcome to GMC!

What were exactly your bad practicing habits? I can see the determination in your sentences, so I'm sure that you'll be able to get rid of those habits. Good luck!

Hi mate! Welcome to GMC! Nice guitars! I love the pink Ibanez! smile.gif
It's important for you to be sure that you are doing the things right now! You can join my Vchat sessions and stream with your webcam, so I can see what you are playing and give you some feedback. I do it every Friday at 7 PM London Time.
Enjoy the site and let us know if you need some help.

Cheers,
