I joined this forum for two primary reasons and a third not so important reason.
The first reason was to hopefully learn more about playing a seven string guitar in the conventional manner instead of the way I currently use it, which feels like for lack or a simpler explanation feels as if I am limiting myself and my guitar's capabilities.
The second reason is to hopefully meet as nicer bunch of individuals who all share the same passion and interests as myself, who don't expect me to know everything about how computers and the internet and how it's software works, who accuse people who ask simple questions to be trolls and trolling - I had to google what that was and meant.
The third reason I joined was to improve my knowledge and skills with the computer, especially when it comes to using the internet, and online activities in general, I spend far more time with a guitar in my hands than I do sitting in front of and using a computer.
So let me introduce myself a bit better, I'm not primarily a metal guitarist, though I do play guitar in a hard rock and blues based six piece band, I'm not the lead guitarist, nor am I the rhythm guitarist we switch about, there are some songs that I play the lead for, there are some songs that I play the rhythm for, we find it helps keep things interesting for us as guitarists if we switch things about and don't have a rigid I'm lead and your rhythm setting. I play a lot of different genres everything from metal, to rock 'n' roll, classical. folk, progressive, jazz, the odd bit of country and western, basically everything except rap and hip hop.
I also teach guitar for a living, though I primarily teach classical guitar using the Trinity School of Music, and The London College of Music syllabus. I also teach electric guitar, but right now I have far more classical students than I do electric students, and most of my students are on the London School of Music syllabus.
Anyway I hope to find this place a lot friendlier and more welcoming than the last forum that I joined.
Welcome aboard, sir!
