My name is Alex and I'm from Romania.

I'm 20 and have started guitar a few months back. I've always loved it , I've always believed in music and what it can do for people, and for some reason I just snapped , grabbed a 40 year-old cheap local-built unplayable acoustic guitar and started to fret and pick my first sounds biggrin.gif ....... the enthuziasm that grew in me then and has been till now can't honestly be described to the fullest.

I've started getting guitar lessons from a teacher - an amazing < old , if I may say > guy that keeps on enlightening me even more. He's told me that I have a serious dose of natural 'talent' or ease of play with the guitar , or at least it's very comfortable / strangely familiar with me. That doesn't mean much at this point.

I'm loving every second of practice, play or fooling around with the guitar. I've got it in my hands every other minute. I guess I don't LITERALLY PRACTICE hours on end every day , but as for playing it in one way or another - it's definitely a lot of hours / day in my hands. I feel like I've never done anything as rewarding as playing guitar - and simultaneously making music in my life.

I liked Kris when I first stumbled upon GMC , he's a friendly , honest guy as it seems , a very nice guitar player and after also seeing how much people appreciate the instructors here - I joined GMC and plan on sticking here indefinitely smile.gif .

I respect you all, I hope I'll find the help I might need here at times and I also hope with the little I experience I've sumed up until now - that I may be able to help others in some ways.

About my tastes in music - I listen to Manowar firstly for that surge of power , energy , sense of unity among men [and women hopefuly] and the epic courage and glory they inspire - makes me feel all the more honorable. THIS is heavy metal with balls and irrespective of what many will say I am pretty much convinced of why Manowar are so special. Furthermore , among guitarists I LoVe Santana for his simply breathtaking subtleness [resulting in sheer beauty] in playing guitar , Steve Vai for his equally crazy level of emotion and his wacky innovative style, and so on - probably adding more power & heavy metal to this list.
But generally speaking I love music that can take me places. Most of you will have an idea about this silly statement smile.gif

I'm at college at the moment - two in fact - law and economy , with an obvious secret desire to excel in playing guitar and creating music.


HAIL and rock on everyone and don't be bothered by any slightly emo comments I've made in this presentation - they're all from the soul , mon and written down to prove a point ..... cheers !
