Hello there. I am what's called a guitar 'noob' for the most part. I picked it up a few years ago but haven't taken it seriously until now (this recent year). Since I've been investing more time into it I can see myself improving and starting to head in the direction I want to go. This site with all its tablature and inspiration certainly helps.
I eventually want to play metal (I know, big ambitions right?) But I know I can get there -- hey we all started somewhere. I can confidently play some punk and acoustic folk stuff , some classic rock riffs etc. I study my favorite musicians (many of which are just regular folks on youtube like you guys!) So, I hope to eventually find some people to jam with and get some better gear, for now I'm having fun and learning which is both incredibly fun and frustrating as hell.
That's all for now. Slowly getting better, day by day.
