Location: Greenford, UK
Date of Birth: 23rd Feb 1978
Been playing guitar since: 1983
I was born on 23.FEB.1978. in Tuzla - Bosnia and Herzegovina. My first contact with the instrument was at the age of 5. After finishing classical music school I started playing in very sucessful metal bands "Neon Knights" and "Southern Storm". In 2004 I moved to London where I enrolled "The Guitar Institute" and graduated in 2007. In 2005 I won the competition "Guitar Hero UK 2005" at Wembley Conference Centre and got gear worth over £2000. In 2008 I got a record deal with famous metal label "Lion Music" from Finland and released my first album as a solo artist called "Sevdah Metal". Now I am working on the next one which is what I love to do - play, compose and arrange music.
Playing and Influences
My biggest influences are rock bands from 70's and 80's. I learned most of what I know from legends like Led Zeppelin, Black Sabbath, Deep Purple, Rainbow, Whitesnake etc... For solo guitarists I like more technically developed players like Vinnie Moore, Yngwie Malmsteen, Paul Gilbert ... I also enjoy blues and R&B but sometimes I listen to classical music for relaxation.
This place gave me the opportunity to do what I love. GMC is the best guitar community that you can possibly find on the internet. Here we feel like a big family in a very friendly environment, sharing experience, learning from everybody, getting advice and having great fun. When I started playing the Internet didn't exist. I had to rely on what was available at that time. I was learning songs by ear and many times didn't get things right. Now you have the opportunity to easily talk to instructors, get advice, play literally any style of music that you can think of and enjoy a great friendly atmosphere which will give you huge motivation to play and practice guitar.
