How long have you been playing?

I picked up the guitar for the first time when was 11 and i went to music school where my mom worked as a piano teacher! They had a really cool guy teaching guitar and he invited me to give it a shot! I finished that school in 5 years but unfortunately i didn't spend the time as i should have - i didn't practice at all!

At that time i never thought of playing electric guitar but around the age of 15 i started playing electric guitar and it was my first contact with a pick as till than i was only playing finger picking style and classical music only.

Now i am 19 (almost 20) and i've been playing guitar seriously for around 5 years.

How much do you practice?

A lot! Sometimes 5 and sometimes 7 to 8 hours a day! My all time top practice session is 13 hours long!

How do you practice?

I almost don't warm-up but jump on exercises immediately! I also don't jam along some songs or stuff. All i do is playing exercises which btw. i create myself so i don't use any instructionals or tabs. All i play i create myself. Also sometimes instead of practicing i compose my own songs which will be a material for my first CD.

Do you have CD?

Not yet! I'm working on it and hope to release something in 2-3 years!

Do you play in a band?

No! I used to play in a band which you can hear here - but the band was not working too hard and i decided to quit because of both players skills differences and musical tastes. I find it much more productive to work on songs/music at home on your own!

Do you have a website?

Yes! Pavel Denisjuk

It will soon be changed to a new domain name and i will notify you here!

Any suggestions on how to become a good player?

Set your goals and work hard to achieve them! Practice a few hours each day and do it with your mind fully concentrated on what you are doing!
