Well this is exciting! I'm probably one of the younger people to join this forum (19). I say that because reading through the posts, it seems like many of you are pretty accomplished musicians, and I don't know many people my age who can say that about themselves... Or maybe I just don't want to admit I'm getting old
But anyway, right now, I'm studying to be a nurse, which is pretty awesome. You get to like, save lives!
I don't have a job right now, so in my spare time, I'm a guitarist! Well, for about three years now. I'll listen to anything really. And the type of music that I play reflects that. I play rock oriented worship songs for my church, and that's really all I play live. Everything else I play for my own enjoyment, and the styles vary from metal, to classic rock, to acoustic stuff, etc. I've been getting into jazz recently, and I've taken a liking to jazzy fusiony type stuff. John Petrucci is one of my most enjoyable guitarists to listen to, and until recently, he *was* my favorite. However, about a week ago, I discovered Guthrie Govan, and it turned my world upside down. He rocks!!
And one last thing, I've been trying to improve on my improv chops as of late (which were practically nonexistent about a month ago). It's slow progress, but listening to good music keeps me motivated to keep at it!
So anyway, sorry if this was really long, I like to be thorough. Oh, and just fyi, I'm a dude. In case the nurse thing threw you off...lol
