Welcome to all the new folks. Got here myself Dec 17th. Get 5 posts in and get the security stuff on the site outta the way.

I picked up and put down the guitar a dozen times in the last 45 years - Justin's stuff works! Start at the beginning even if you've played before. Grade 1 calibrates you to Justin's style and it's all about playing songs. Learn the lessons but focus on the song playing - that was my failure in the past. I learned chords and scales not songs.

Have fun and make some noise!

Habitat: Vermont, USA

Schecter C-1 Blackjack w/ Duncan Distortion & Duncan 59
Epiphone Hummingbird Pro

Which guitar do you currently play on?
Epiphone

Which amp(s) do you own?
Peavey Valveking 112

For how long have you been playing guitar?
Hmmm.. Started around 2001. On and off for about 20 years I guess.

Which is/are your favorite music genre(s)?
Rock, Metal and Acoustic

Which genre do you play on your guitar often?
Lately I've been working a ton on my acoustic and fingerstyle skills. My background is mostly rock and metal with some blues. However I've made a goal to only play acoustic this year and see where I'm at by years end since its my most neglected genre.

Who are your favorite bands?
Lately Beartooth has been a big one. Also Mike Dawes and Kaki King, more one-person-bands but super awesome fingerstyle guitarists. Kind of all over the place. Also love Of Mice & Men, Fit For a King, Unwritten Law, The Anchor, Pantera..


What inspired you to start playing guitar?
My step father gave me his old Les Paul knock off to play when I was a kid. I dabbled but it was massive and I was tiny so it didn't go far. Then I started listening to Linkin Park for a couple years.. Then a few years later I was introduced to Metallica, Slipknot and Limp Bizkit (yeah, I know, I know) and I bought myself an RG321 and that's pretty much where it all began. The first time I heard the Cemetery Gates riff is whe I knew this is what I was going to be doing for the rest of my life.


Do you play in a band or have you been playing in a band?
Not at the moment. I've jammed with other musicians but never actually been in a band.


Why do you play guitar?
It's one of my few escapes. The feeling you get when you play something that just sounds good is one that never gets old for me. I also love teaching guitar and have been doing so for about 10 years now. And if I plan to teach, I've gotta keep learning!

What are your goals for the future?
- Complete the Mike Dawes Master course on JamPlay
- Complete the Kaki King Master Course on JamPlay
- Record an acoustic song
- Write my own fingerstyle song
- Stop sucking at singing (I know the exercises, just don't wanna do em lol)
- Teach as many people to play guitar, or at least get them to start, as possible.

Also, on a side note, was anyone else hella confused by the key captcha the first time they saw it? lol. That thing had me messed up for a second there.

Welcome aboard - you've found a great community...

The captcha goes away after 5 posts.  There is a thread somewhere in the welcome section where folks just knock 5 posts out to get over it...
