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.

What inspired you to start playing guitar? I always loved music and going to some live events inspired me to star learning guitar

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.
