Hey GMC smile.gif

It has been a while since I was here last. Some of you know me some of you don't. I have been here at GMC for a few years now and it has helped me a lot with my guitar playing path. Now for those who don't know me, I am not in a band or anything, just play for me... and the occasional house party smile.gif I have come a long way since I first picked up the guitar 8 or so years ago but I am no where near where I should be... or want to be.

I have stuck mostly to the acoustic the last few years as most people want you to play sing a long songs at parties and stuff but I find myself once again wanting to learn more on my electric. I want to do more than just chord songs!! I've started and stopped this part of my guitar playing so many times now I have lost count but I am going to give it another go. I usually get really frustrated and go back to what I know but I really want to challenge myself. I've set a couple goals for myself actually and a 6 month time table (my birthday is in a little over 6 months so figured it's a good goal time smile.gif ) Some of my goals are to make sure I practice everyday, work on my alternate picking and also my picking speed, learn another scale other than pentatonic wink.gif work on theory knowledge and also learn a new song including solos by my birthday, keep a guitar journal of my progress.

Small goals, but achievable. I have renewed my subscription as well so will be doing a couple videos... just gotta figure out which ones to start with now smile.gif So watch out GMC... Rok is back!!!! cool.gif

Thanks guys it feels good to be back smile.gif

@ Hajduk hello from the east coast! Yes always good to see a fellow Canuck on here biggrin.gif

@ Doug Lane thanks man. As I said it feels good to be back. Practiced for about 1.5 hrs last night. Still trying to figure out what song I want to learn... keep going back to acoustic stuff LOL!!

@ Cosmin that looks great man! I started in with Bear's beginner corner last night, more as a refresher however as I went through the videos I noticed there is some stuff there that I think is going to be very helpful to me. I'm not an absolute beginner but I still have a lot to learn LOL!! I will get to answering your questions later today and send you a PM. Thanks for taking the time to help me out smile.gif

@ Slavenko LOL!! No ice yet however it won't be long now. Calling for some snow later today. Bring it on I say!!! I have a new snowmobile this year biggrin.gif

@ Caelumamittendum Thanks and yes it is nice to see some of the old crowd still here. Made some great friends on this site I gotta say.

welcome back!!!!! smile.gif Picking up guitar takes practice, and repetition. You can pick it up, and put it down, and pick it back up, etc. as many times as you like. We will still be here for ya!!
