Hello everyone,

I am Ayan.I am from India.Although I donot come from a musically inclined family,but my liking for music started probably with bands like Backstreet Boys,Ensync,WestlifLinkin Park,singers like Enrique,Ricky martin.And then one day I heard Hotel California being performed by my school band.nd I was like wow!wat a guitar piece is being played.....and that was the time my eyes were upon this beautiful instrument.With time I started searching guitar pieces in scorpions,bryan admas,lionel richie....and then I heard Smokes on the water,songs of Guns N Roses and I was blown away.But my interest of learning the instrument started after I was shown a video of Dream Theater and John Petrucci was doing some uncanny,fast,sensuous,insane solo playing and I was glued.Although I heard metallica,ac/dc,iron maiden earlier but i was inspired by Petrucci like hell.I bought the Rock Discipline DVD and started practicing,but lost my interest when I couldnot play the exercises.But I didnot stopped learning.And then I found GMC where I started learning from the level I was in.I interacted with the instructors and they helped me to figure out how to move further with learning levelwise.And I think I have improved a lot.And besides Petrucci,I was also inspired by Marty Friedman,Steve Vai,Eddie Van Halen.Jeff Loomis,Alex Skolnick,Alexi Laiho etc etc to name a few.Also Al di Meola was also a great inspiration.Same for blues king BBKing,Eric Clapton,Buddy Guy etc etc.My goal in guitar playing is to be a dynamic player.....not just a random shredder or a rythm player but to have a allround knowledge and Satriani,Vai....hehe!!!Am I getting too ambitious????

Thanks and regards,
