Hello everybody here !!!

My name is Thomas, I am 37 years old and I´ve raised up to learn playing guitar - hope i´ll learn fast, so a dream of my younger days (but sure not even better or worser days) is becoming true.

I live here in Dresden now for about 7 years now, before I lived in Köln (Cologne) and had there a Tattoo & Arts Shop.
In the year 2000 i moved (because of a woman laugh.gif ) to Dresden - in the year 2001 i lost my new studio in the catastrophy when the Elbe was goin through Dresden. - And the woman was following the shop - no money - no girl...

I thought that nothing would heal this scar, but just 4 months later i met my new girlfriend Rita and we are still going strong now by 6 years...

Through the loss of the shop and all my money, I´ve just started it all new, but not in tattooing, i was creating & building tattoo machines. the machines sold well and so I´ve done it until 7 months ago.

Then i was struck down by a heart attck and I´ve gotta quit this job. I sold my experiences to a young guy and I am still training him now; but in a few weeks he will do it all on his own.
He has to, or my doctor will kill me ohmy.gif ...and if he´s doin´not, even my wife will do !!! laugh.gif laugh.gif

But only sitting at home and watch tv all the time is nothing for my fathers son, so I´ve grapped my wife and said to her: What shall I do now?
And she said : Make yourself a dream come true and learn to play the Rock guitar.

And so here I am, Guys and Girls...

If you got some questions, feel free to ask me everything you want.

Ifyou want to call me in ICQ - my Numbers in the personal Info.

I am also looking for some people for email-contacts to get my english a bit better... wink.gif
Best regards and Hail to Rock,
Thomas aka Grimjoura

Not the best picture of me, but better than nothing... cool.gif cool.gif cool.gif wink.gif

Welcome to GMC, sorry to hear about your string of bad luck. Playing the guitar(as long as you practice) will certainly get the ole juices flowing in the right direction. Every little gain on my part give me a great feeling. You will meet a lot of great people here at GMC, don't forget to ask when you have questions, the people here are great at answering them.


--------------------
You wish.
