I've been playing guitar off and on for 5 years now and i have decided to seriously start learning how to play well.
i don't tend to try and learn other bands material, i just pick up the guitar and start playing. i have made some sweet riffs of my own but i feel very restricted at the moment ie: staying around the same part of the fret board...its kinda like a habit. i do break away from it every now and then and it feels good but sure enough, the next time i pick the guitar up i tend to stay in one area.
im by no means a 'good' player and i don't pretend to be.i enjoy playing and im not trying to join a band or show off my skills ( although maybe one day i will be good enough too ) its purely for my enjoyment.
my guitar is tuned to drop c and yup, you probs guessed that i play a lot of 1 finger chords and not so much lead....but i am trying.
to give you all a sense of what 'level' im at, i will make a recording of my current skills and hopefully i can get some tips/hints.
Welcome aboard, dude!
