It's been 8 years since Monica joined the site.

I have been trying to find a good way to describe Monica's progress, but... I would like to show you instead. Start with this early Monica video:


(taken from her youtube channel)

Now I invite you check out her latest composition:


(as presented in this thread)

To me, Monica's extreme attention to details - coupled with her pace of progress, is unique! She nails every little detail.

On top of this - she does it in an instrumental composition of her own - which to me sounds like a modern version Marty Friedman meets Andy Timmons ballad. You can check out more details of Monica's journey by browsing her topics.

So Monica - I think you are one of the most inspiring students we have ever had. For many of us, seeing your progress is a huge catalyst to practice harder.

There is so much we can learn from you. As an example you are always extremely thoughtful in your critique/feedback. Through your analysis, we can clearly tell you did not end up mastering all those subtle (and super tasty!) micro techniques by accident. No, your journey is a laser focused quest to master the instrument at every level.

Possibly - even towards a level no one has seen before, because I know you are hard at work with Darius Wave - and I am honestly a bit scared to see where this will take you 🤩

But all of this wouldn't be worth celebrating, if it weren't for the fact you are also a strong force of positivity at GMC. Whenever I see you have posted, I know that it will either brighten my day, or teach me something new - but most of the time both.

I know you have been going through some tough times recently - but rest assured that you will always have a community ready to support you in GMC ❤️

YOU ROCK!

First of all, Kris thank you so much for this post (it was an unexpected and very emotional surprise), for your awesome words and your constant support. smile.gif

Reading what you all wrote, it impressed me to tears. I usually talk and write too much but this time you guys made me remain without words.
When Darius brought me to GMC, I never believed that I will meet such amazing people and my life will change in a positive way.
After 8 years of being daily present in GMC, I can say that beside a huge amount of stuffs that I have learned from lessons, from the instructors feedback and from all of you, I won amazing friends. smile.gif

As for my journey....this continues because I still have so many things to learn, to do and show.
At this moment I work at a new composition. Will be different than the first one because Darius requirements grows with each new step that I make. biggrin.gif But this is what I love and what makes me have a constant ambitious to finish things that at a first view I believe them impossible.
This it's my favorite workshop and I dreamed at it from the first moment when I started playing at guitar. smile.gif

To give you something from the "house", my new composition will be based on much more developed ideas, even more subtle details, new additions in techniques and some parts where will be a harmonization between two guitars. I hardly wait to have this finished and share with you.



So.....guys thanks from my heart for all your support and for the fact that all these years you kept staying with me in my journey. I love you all. smile.gif

Thank you so much Manu!!! You also have a killer playing and I always hardly wait to see a new take from you. smile.gif
I was really sad to read about your elbow. I hope the therapy works good and your pains will go soon. I wish you a fast recovery. smile.gif

Ben, thank you very much for your awesome words. It means a lot to me. smile.gif

BTW, I remember that the moment when I became a fan of your playing was somewhere in 2013, in the day when I listened your take for our "Less is more" competition. Then I was fascinated by your melodic sense. smile.gif
I tried to find your take but apparently that topic seems to be playing hide-and-seek with me. biggrin.gif

It was a competition not a collab (somewhere in December 2013). wink.gif Yes, I'm sure this was the name because I have this wrote on my take from YT.
We had even a V-chat made by Darius named "Less is more" competition:
