Hi Guys and Girls.

I forgot to appear when I joined on GMC almost 2 years ago.

I have difficulty to speak English. My introducing has duration 1:30 hour of writing rolleyes.gif

Country : France
Name : Manu
Years : 45
Married - 3 sons 18 / 16 and 13 years old

1985 :
I began to play guitar 14/15 years old, I don't remember exactly.
My father taught me some easy major / minor chords. I play alone in my room with classic guitar.
Beattles : yesterday | The animals : the house of the rising sun | Led Zeplin : Stairway to heaven
My practice was not serious, I played when I wanted.

1988 :
My parents offered me an electric guitar : Hohner Lespaul Gold
It was magnificent and it was so heavy, it hurt my shoulders when I played for a long time up
I listen audio K7, I try to play, so much hours for play two notes... It's very difficult but I keep working

1990 :
With friends, we train a bend : name "peachy Cobler"
We play standard of rock : Sympathy for the devil, Johnny B Goode and some awfull compositions
All this was not very serious, my friends came to drink of the acool and smoke canabis..

1992 :
I am in the armed forces in Germany, Evening, I play classic guitar with friend.
They like when I play.... I play always the same things but I play them well...

I continue to play alone during serveral years - I learn with some professors - I learn some new things

1995 :
I get married, I still play little with my rhythm box but I loses the motivation.
My Job, the house -- I leave the guitar in the attic and I leave it a few years.

2003
My sons was 3 and 5 years old -- I go to the attic I take the guitar
I play in their room.. They listen to and they fall asleep

2003 - 2012 :
I play 5/10 mn per day.... always the same
I teach guitar has my children......

- Quentin is left-handed, difficult for me to learn...
He like music - I registered him on the music school - He play saxophone since 5 years

2012 October :
I was 41 years Old.... I decide to resume seriously the electric guitar...
I find out Native instrument Guitar Rig - I buy a line6 tone port GX - I Download some blues Backingtrack...
Youtube how to play hey joe, Little wing,... yeeeeeessssss.... Playing guitar it became easy

I'm bad but I'm happy to play licks

Was awesome to read your introduction and also I really enjoyed the video with your son Hugo. I'm sure he will be a good player as his father wink.gif

I'm very happy that you found GMC. You are an amazing player and from my point of view you already are one of the best students. I always enjoy your amazing REC takes and I love the fact that you pay attention to the details from lessons (this thing puts you among my favorite players from GMC). I truly admire your playing and I'm always very happy to see you receiving huge grades in REC smile.gif

BTW from what I see both we have the same objective for next years smile.gif

Oh...I forgot....Welcome to GMC! smile.gif

Hi MisterM! This is an awesome thread! smile.gif

Your musical / life journey looks really cool and inspiring. I'm very happy of being part of it. I always enjoy checking your videos.

It's really impressive to check your 2014 and your 2016 videos. Your playing was good in 2014, but I'm amazed of how much your overall playing has improved, and mostly regarding tone and expressing elements.

Keep on rocking!!

Your advices, your constructive criticisms make me progress smile.gif

I still have some old videos to be added.
They are hideous. I shall post them this week

It's a pity, I have nothing before 2012

Nice story, guitar is a good life-long companion. As I already wrote in a youtube comment, your REC takes are really great. When listening to them you know that you "know the lesson by heart". In the great guitar book "Zen Guitar" that once was advertised by Ben and Cosmin it would be described as having "kokoro no ire" - inclusion of the heart spirit. It basically means that you express yourself in the take and because of that the experience is full, nothing is missing smile.gif

Keep it up \m/

Always great to see your progress and your REC videos. Also really cool to read about your playing history, seeing passion for the guitar is such a wonderful thing and i'm sure all of us here share the same love for guitar and music.
