Hey all at GMC! After having a quick look round, I just had to join- the accumulation of talent on this one site is spectacular. Special thanks go to Muris for finally luring me in with his neoclassical alternate picking excercise biggrin.gif

I am FAR too reliant on economy picking, my alternate picking is terrible- so I will learn that if it kills me (and it probably will, by the looks of things tongue.gif ) To be honest, that level of playing is so far above mine I can barely see it though the clouds, but i'll start off slowly, see how i get on.

A little bit about me- I'm 22, from Yorkshire, England, and have been playing the guitar for around 5 years now. I hope to get good enough in the next couple of years to teach (working through exams now), so I can do that enough to make a living, and be able to stay at home and write the rest of the time (my other passion).

Well, I don't want to bore anyone too much, so I'll get off. Nice to meet you all, I hope to be around a while smile.gif

Welcome Matt! Yes, alternate picking is extremely useful! I'm not very good at it, and I love it already! tongue.gif

This is a really cool place for any musician so i think you will like it.You said ''To be honest, that level of playing is so far above mine I can barely see it though the clouds, but i'll start off slowly, see how i get on.
'' Trust me the instructor's playing is well above just about everyone here thats why there the instructor's tongue.gif biggrin.gif .Its always been a dream for me to teach music aswell,so study hard and hope it works out for you.
