About riaki1998

I'm 15 years old. I came to England at the age of five and was enrolled into the second year of primary school to begin to learn English, a skill which took a large majority of my primary education to master yet now seems like second nature to me in my final year of secondary. More so that I now aspire to one day become a writer, perhaps even a lyricist.

I got my first guitar at the age of nine or ten (Herald HL34 Acoustic Guitar) and started having lessons at my primary school. The teacher was a complete waist of money and I soon didn't want to attend his lessons. I put away my guitar with suppressed dreams of rock stardom.

On Friday 28th June 2013, by chance my family had decided to watch Glastonbury. On the Pyramid Stage, Arctic Monkeys came and headlined the festival, dreams of rock stardom reignited, I retrieved my old acoustic from the attic and began learning to play once again.

About a month, three weeks and a few blisters later my first electric guitar arrives (Stagg S250-BK/ S300-BK?). Second hand and only £30, it was in bad condition, reeking of tobacco and plastered with yellowing stickers. After two days, I'd managed to peel and scrub the stickers off and rid of the scent 'til sitting on its stand, it looked a whole new guitar: My early 15th Birthday present and I love it to bits.

I joined the UG community on the 11th August this year following my dreams and one day I hope I can follow Alex Turner (frontman of Arctic Monkeys) in his footsteps and travel the world with my own music.
