Hi Reda,

Nice to get a bit of background- welcome to the forum again!  ;)
I've seen most of your previous posts, but didn't connect the dots and realise they were the same person.
All I can say is your progress is incredible.
I'ts hard to believe you were able to produce that Karma Police cover with less than a year's experience.
You have a great feel for the music and great vocals/timing to boot.
This old-timer-newbie is well jealous, but generous enough to give vibes where vibes are due
Keep it up and the sky is the limit.

Do you play in a band or have you been playing in a band? No and I don't see it happens in the future

Why do you play guitar? Because it's a lot of fun!

What are your goals for the future? Improve my guitar skills and maybe try to writeand record something


Now I'm practicing with the Blues Lead course and also focusing on ear training and
rhythm and timing (my weak points at this stage).
I found out that I become quickly bored by practicing and I need to also focus on learning and playing actual songs. So I started my YouTube channel to keep me motivated, recording the songs I learn. Usually I love to cover songs using backing tracks instead of playing over the song. Its much more difficult because you don't have references and also you can't hide your errors behind the guitars on the CD.

Nickname: Simo
Real name: Simona
Age: 40
Habitat: UK Surrey (but not native)
Which guitar do you own: a cheap electroacoustic and an even cheaper 3/4 classic. I am planning to buy an electric but I am waiting to know a little bit more about them and me as a guitar player.
Which guitar do you currently play on: the acoustic one.
Which amp do you own?: A second hand Marshal that is currently living in the storage waiting for my future electric guitar.
How long have you been playing?: Seriously only a few weeks when I discovered Justin site.
Favourite music genre: Mostly rock, but I'll listen to anything that catches my fancy.
Which genre do you play on your guitar?: Anything fun enough to strum.
Favourite bands: Queen, AC/DC, Black Sabbath, Deep Purple, U2... Most of the old guys really, plus I am on a mission to find new indie rock bands worth listening to, so I am open for suggestions.
What inspired you to start playing guitar?: Boredom during a summer holiday at my parents. My dad bought a guitar because a friend of him was giving lessons and offered a student place, so one afternoon I picked it up and got to the last page of the booklet were there was the fretboard scheme, I picked the music sheet for Scarborough fair from my old schoolbook and started to work it out. Half an hour later I ended with a passable version and my dad decided I needed my own guitar. Then work and moving countries and a child happened and I only even did a little of it to relax. But I never learned to strum until I found Justin's course.
Why do you play guitar?: I am here for the fun. And it's a pleasurable way to relax and get the mind off work.
Goals for the future?: Guitar wise, have a good grasp of the basics and be able to play along my favourite music (and something my husband and child would like to sing along to).

Which guitar(s) do you own?
Let's see... A Fender Player Strat, Fender Acoustic Electric (Can't remember the model), Epiphone DR-100 Acoustic, Epiphone Les Paul Traditional Pro II, and a Epiphone Wildkat with Bigsby.

Which guitar do you currently play on?
My "number one" is my Player Strat.

Which amp(s) do you own?
Right now I just have a practice amp... a Fender Champion 100. I'm thinking about either getting a Hot Rod Deluxe, or since I'm playing just around the house right now and need a headphones option, I might go with a Line 6 Helix.

How long have you been playing guitar?
Over 20 years, although I had a stretch of 5 years when I wasn't playing at all, until I picked it back up 9 months ago.

Which is/are your favorite music genre(s)?
I pretty much like all music with a few exceptions, but I'm most drawn to Blues/Rock.

Which genre do you play on your guitar often?
Blues/Rock

Who are your favorite bands?
Too many to state, but I'll go with SRV, The Eagles, Van Halen, and U2 since that covers all the styles I enjoy.

What inspired you to start playing guitar?
My brother had dabbled with playing acoustic guitar but didn't stick with it. I kept fiddling with the guitar around the house, not knowing how to play. And I had always liked the look of the Strat. So I asked my dad if I could get an electric guitar. He said that if I learned how to play on the acoustic and really took to it, then he'd consider it. I learned how to play on that little acoustic, and after awhile got a Peavey Raptor and started my electric journey.

Do you play in a band or have you been playing in a band?
I played in a church band for 8 years. It was great musical experience. I played live 3 times per week, plus a 3 hour band practice each week. Often we would have to learn songs quickly and play them an hour later. There was some opportunity to improvise as well. I'll be honest, leaving this band was one of the reasons I stopped playing for 5 years. There was some drama behind the scenes, left the band and left the church, and then for years every time I picked up a guitar it was just bad memories. Enough time finally went by that I realized no drama is worth giving up something you love.

Why do you play guitar?
I don't know how to answer this one. To me, it's like asking "Why do you breathe?" I just do. I love it.

What are your goals for the future?
I'm a decent player, but not disciplined with my practice. I want to see how much I can improve if I just take it very seriously.

Hello there,
nice to be here on this forum  :)

I'm middle aged guy who got himself a guitar on Tuesday. It's my first guitar, an acoustic Sigma. Well technically it's my second guitar but the story of the first one is so ... typical to what can happen in real life that I don't count that as the first guitar.

I like rock, especially fond of 60s and 70s music, psychedelia and all.

I try to keep up a daily practice, but this beginning is pretty hard: lots of sweat little results.

However, I have time. Not in a hurry. Trying to enjoy the journey!

Edit: My goal is to learn to play *and sing* Wish you were here. May take a while. Don't hold your breath.
