Introduce yourself
« on: March 13, 2007, 08:29:40 pm »
Harpmaker and I found it a good idea to make a topic where you can introduce yourself so we all know who we're talking to! :D

So I made a simple questionlist for everyone to answer if they like to! :D

So here it is (with my answers):


Nickname: Lucos

Who are your favorite bands?
Linkin Park, because I find them very artistic, mainstream or not. And I really like The Offspring aswell.

What inspired you to start playing guitar?
Actually because of MTV. I know, it sounds stupid. But everytime I checked out 'Rockzone' on MTV and saw all those rock and metal bands playing I was like: "God I wish I could do that!" And later I thought: "What the heck, I'm going to buy myself a guitar and get some lessons to become just as good!"

No. I hope to be able to play in a band in the future though!

Age and birthday:
born on the 6th of july 1982; that makes me 24

Habitat:
Mechelen; a (way too noisy city) in Belgium. I grew up the quiet part of Willebroek; a commune between fields and woods. My parents house had practically no neighbours and the yard with the "terrace" was a great "cottonfield" atmosphere for jammin... Now I'm forced to play the guitar in our bedroom. (our bedroom: I have a girlfriend named Kim Huysmans (Huysmans could be translated as "from the house")

Which guitar(s) do you own?

Fender Standard Strat Left (made in Mexico; cuz theyonly make that model in left there  ..they say)

Which amp(s) do you own?

How long have you been playing guitar?

at first I played left on a righthanded startocaster copy for a year and a half
then I bought my "real" guitar  that was ermmm end of 2002
played some tunes but since I found Justins site; I try a bit more of a structured approach

Which is/are your favorite music genre(s)?
I like soo much; except for the too commercial crap and R&B (mumbling bling bling shaait)
I most like classical, oldies, (hard) rock, blues and that thing Orbital does :D
I also like the moviethemse of Danny Elfman (mostly works together with the director Tim Burton (edward scirrhands, charlie & the chocolate factory etc)
most of all I like his version for "Batman" (and by that I DON't mean the little 'nananananananan batman' tune)

Which genre do you play on your guitar often?
rock and blues; but I like to play funny tunes too like baby elephant walk; showtunes; old 'folksongs'

Who are your favorite bands?
like harpmaker, I'm more of a song based man. Sometimes I like 10 songs of a group; sometimes just 2 or 3.
I enjoy :
the smashing pumpkins (what they used to play; I have NO IDEA what they do now)
prokofiev, wagner,boudewijn de groot, the stones, Guns n Roses, aahh too much to mention all

What inspired you to start playing guitar?

- the ability to bring melody AND rythm
- the versitality (is that even a word?)
- but most of all the sound(effects)
- it's my escape from reality! whoop whoop!

Do you play in a band or have you been playing in a band?

nope, perhaps one day... at least I need a car :p

Why do you play guitar?

- to chill form a hard day at work
- the challenge of constant learning; everytime these cool discoveries
- expressing myself

What are your goals for the future? :x
guitar related:
-constant learning and exploring,
-maintaining the right ratio in inspiration, frustration and results :D = keeping it fun but challenging
-of course everybody as a little or big ego; mine asks a bit but not much:be recognized as a guitarp layer. not as being famous but more in like someone answering (without hesitating) with my name if someone asks "which person you know plays quite a bit of guitar?"

non-guitar related:
A house in the fields; an average of 1.2 children in a usual happy family situation
good health for me; future wife and possible kids
balance in rational thinking in business en expression in music :p
perhaps once owning my own little firm in (web)design/solutions/consulting
DOING THE RIGHT THING, DOING THE THING RIGHT

I don't wish for world peace or end of hunger
I moslty focus on different parties UNDERSTANDING each other; greasing up the rusty communications; creating pragmatic models to delegate projects to specialists in their fields.  in short; working on the glasses to see the "big picture" as clear as possible
my band: fb: Point Fifty | Instagram: Point Fifty

Favourite electric guitarist...James Marshal Hendrix,to quote Lemmy(Motorhead),who used to be a roadie for the Experience(which seems to have had lasting effect):"...the best guitarist ever to walk on the face of this planet"...and who knows what experiences from his real or imagined(it matters not)astral journeyings to other realms have influenced his work...a far too brief though lasting legacy...what collaboration's could have occurred : Miles Davis,Carlos Santana,Sun Ra to name a few I would have loved him to play with...


          Favourite acoustic guitarist...Davey Graham,I only discovered him recently through a BBC4 doc. on British folk(which I have also only recently become interested in, previously only really listening to American)...another lasting legacy,and unrealised potential perhaps but an amazing and inspirational guitarist nonetheless...

Who is your favorite guitarist?
There are so many depending on genre.

The ones that make my jaw drop are Andy McKee and Tommy Emmanuel.
