Hey everyone, just picked up my first guitar a couple of days ago and am starting to make my way through Justin's course. Starting to work on my one minute changes but whilst my fingers toughen up I've been learning the opening riff to: seven nation army, can't hardly wait by the replacements and bastards of young by the replacements. Hopefully I'll be around for a while whilst I learn :)

Real (full) name: Brandyn Snyder

Age: 27

Habitat: NoVA, USA

Which guitar(s) do you own?
Too many:

PRS S2 Custom 24 30th Anniversary
PRS SE 245 signed by Chevelle and Mr. Paul Reed Smith himself
PRS Tremonti SE
PRS Mike Mushok Baritone
LTD EC-1000
LTD BB-600B
Ibanez RG7321

Which guitar do you currently play on?
The S2 or the EC-1000 for practice. The BB-600B or the Tremonti for general jamming.

Which amp(s) do you own?
Vox Night Train 15
Orange Crush Pro 120
Mesa Boogie Dual Rectifier

How long have you been playing guitar?
I don't the exact amount of time but I guess it'd be about 13-14 years now.

Which is/are your favorite music genre(s)?
Mostly different types of rock (classic, hard, etc). I sometimes dabble into the realm of metal/metalcore.

Which genre do you play on your guitar often?
Same as above.

Who are your favorite bands?
Top 3 bands would be Breaking Benjamin, Chevelle, and Shinedown.

What inspired you to start playing guitar?
Initially, it was because I was a dumb teenager and thought, "I can woo girls with this."

Do you play in a band or have you been playing in a band?
Nah. I'm not good enough yet.

Why do you play guitar?
In contrast to my "inspiration" to play, I play because as I listen to music throughout the day, I like to imagine myself as the one up on stage jamming away on the guitar and it sounds/feels like it'd be a blast.

What are your goals for the future?
Currently, I'd like to improve my understanding of the fretboard (scales, how to connect notes, etc) and music theory. I'd eventually like to get into song writing and possibly starting a band.

Why do you play guitar? I loved it and I miss it

What are your goals for the future? To be able to play again and better than then.

Quick Note:  I remember listening to my Dad play when I was 6 and 7 years old.  He bought me my first acoustic guitar when I was 12 and I played until he and my mother split.  I then turned to piano and took music theory as well until I joined the military.  I then bought a used guitar and played until both my guitars were stolen while I was recovering from a back injury.  Ship board life wasn't conducive to keeping guitars back then so I didn't replace them when they were gone.  Now 26 years later I find myself with more than enough time to learn again and I miss it.  I've been looking at used guitars but haven't found the one I want.  My Dad just died Thanksgiving morning and dammit I'm going to play again.
