Hello all members of this GMC forum smile.gif.

With this I like to take the opportunity to introduce myself propperly to y'all.

My name is Robert Smit and I'm from a small city (its actually a village since I hasn't got the right to be a city, but its big enough to be one) called Emmen which is in the North-East of the Netherlands. So far I've lived to see 18 springs, with my 19th birthday comming right up in september. What more to tell? Hmm, well I'm going to study Internatiol Hospitality Management next year, which I hope to compleet in 4 years and after that, well, I'll just see ^^.

I have no idea how I reached this site in the first place (I think it was because of youtube though, via Kris's mad 'Chicken Pickin' lesson tongue.gif), but so far I've been around the site for almost a year mostly checking the licks of the day and the free section (which I can't seem to find anymore...). A few months ago I gave up real guitar lessons because I wouldn't have time for them anymore with my new study, but decided that I didn't want to give up guitar playing, so I subscribed to GMC. The first thing I want to say about the site and its content is;

Whoa!

The quality and originality of the lessons is amazing, and so far I've enjoyed every attempt at playing whatever I saw. Especially Pavels Rock 'n Rythm lessons are classical, all verry nice to learn, allthough I might not even be able to play ghehe.

My musical preferences go out to all that rocks, some blues and most metal genre's (I'm not that charmed with death/black metal, or those extreems).

Well, that's about everything you need to know about me (well actually, I wouldn't be surprised if you din't gave a s***, but whatever haha tongue.gif).

Regards, MerV

LOL, woops I should have read your post more carefully laugh.gif

A lil bit Dutch:

Zo, je komt dus uit Drenthe ergens in de buurt?
Emmen, daar ben ik weleens geweest volgens mij.
Ken je het "Beloofde Land" dat is een camping.
Daar ben ik op vakantie geweest.
Ik kom uit Waddinxveen in Zuid Holland.

tot gitaars!
BTW, heb jij Marcel Coenen weleens ontmoet?
ik niet sad.gif

enjoy your stay!

Nee heb ik niet, zou ik wel willen though ;P. Verder ben ik niet bekend met die camping, hoewel ik moet zeggen dat mijn regionaal bewust zijn hier in drenthe wel ophoud bij de grenzen van Emmen ghehe.

(No I haven't, I'd like to though. I'm not familiar with the campsite you are refering to, although I have to confess that my regional knowledge off drenthe ends at the boundaries of emmen.).

Cheers.
