Hello everybody,

Better late than never, as we say...
I am on GMC since October 2012, and I didn't present myself. I KNOW, I AM A JERK. First of all I would like to sincerly apologize for that, it got out of my mind totally!

Ok, there...
I am Arthur, I live in Paris, France. I am 23 year old, and currently working.
I have been playing the guitar for... it will be my 7th year in September. Oh god how time is going fast!!

Ok let me introduce how I started guitar. I want to share it because I love that story smile.gif
One day I was at my cousin's, and we got to one of his friend's house. There were two guys, with electric guitars. First time in my life I saw an electric guitar. Before that, it was science fiction for me! They were really of a nice level. And by chance, they played one of my favorite band songs at the time, Children of Bodom. I was littelarly amazed by the performance. Dat sound, dat power. I was astounded by the ability to PRODUCE music. However, I never thinked of starting playing the guitar, because I wasn't felling capable of at all...I wasn't very self confident at that time.
It was a period I started to think about myself a lot, and question my life. It appeared that I hadn't done anything particular in my life. I sucked at school, it didn't interest me. I didn't have any hobby. I was a geek, playing hours a day of massive multiplaying games. All the year long...
One day, maybe after some weeks or months, I had a dream. That dream. In this dream I found a 5€ bill. With it I decided to buy a guitar. I bought one, and it was AWESOME. I can't remember the dream because it was quite a long time ago. However I remember the intensity of the feeling and emotions I had upon awakening. I hadn't thinked of buying a guitar before this dream. When I woke up, I was decided to buy a guitar. My choice was instantaneous upon waking up.
Then in sold my account on that game I was playing, and I could afford a guitar.

This dream and as a consequence my choice of starting playing music has a strong meaning for me. Nothing in life happen randomly to me. I am so glad I took decision. I love music and I love guitar. It has littelarly changed me. I gained a lot of self confidence, I even started working hard at school...

So it's been 7 years, and I am as grateful as before, or even more. I love music more and more. The work/result, the creativity, the uniqueness of ones skill/music is what makes music a drug for me. I think it will be an important part of my life, for the rest of it!

Sorry for the long story but I like it a lot smile.gif


More concretely, I am a huge fan of metal. I love melodical and technical stuff. My main influences or favorite bands are Veil of Maya, Jeff Loomis, gorod, daath, gojira, obscura, opeth, symphony X, periphery... To name a few.
I like also other styles like jazz, fusion, which I love combined with metal.

My playing is quite oriented exclusively metal. I try to reach a certain level of shred. I am happy with my current level, however I have much improvement to make, and I am super-motivated.

I planned objectives, and I try to stick to them, and practice methodically. I am very happy to be part of that community. First there is a very complete set of exercice/licks in every style/technique I will ever need, which is really helpful. Then I like the fact that it is not an impersonnal kind of courses. There is a kind of familly relationship between instructor and student which I appreciate much. You instructors are really here to help and happy to do it, it is a pleasure to come and ask questions. Sincerly.

I started a "private custom course" with Cosmin, and I am very happy with it. Altough it is only the beginning, it helps me keeping my motivation at the highest, and having customed advice is very efficient. Let's keep on ! I'm here bro!


I have had a youtube channel for a while. I like to learn and cover solos. Making videos makes me focus on mastering enough the part to show it to others. It makes me focus on practicing enough, I don't like half-nailed-half-shity cover!
Here it is : https://www.youtube.com/user/Unleech89?feature=vmdshb

I am also into composition for a year. I don't do it a lot since I prefer practicing, in order to reach a level where I'll be able to create what I like. I have composed several songs with a friend of mine, pianist.
Here is our first song: https://www.dropbox.com/s/3cdj5455nn2ah61/X...20master%29.mp3
It am quite happy with it, but it was recorded with my old stuff. Digital amp simulation... which sound pretty noisy.

And that one : https://www.dropbox.com/s/ls4zqgtkkd0jwz1/0513%205.mp3
It is only a draft, don't judge the quality of the playing or the sound... I recorded it quickly.

So, there is my "little" presentation.

I am really glad to be part of that community.

Arthur

Hi Unleech! Nice "late" introduction! It's a very cool story and it's also good to know your thoughts about events and decisions in your life. I also think that there are not too many random events in life. You have a good guitar level based on the videos that I could see in your youtube channel. Keep on the good job and let me know if any time you need help from me! wink.gif

Enjoyed reading your introduction - welcome to the community! smile.gif

Love how you had a dream about buying a guitar that motivated you to start playing.
Dreams are powerful, I really like when I have music dreams smile.gif I remember once playing Twist and Shout by the Beatles with a band (not sure which, it might have been THE Beatles hehh). I was playing guitar in my dream and pretty good on it, even though I don't know how to play that song (I'm usually just a bass player). I knew in my dream that I don't know it, but I managed to play it full by ear... It was years ago, still remember it smile.gif

Hehe yeah I know that feeling of playing guitar during a dream. It is awesome. When it happened I feeled very happy.
I was into lucid dreaming also, the art of controling dreams. So I know the importance of dreams now smile.gif
