Hello Gentlemen. I am happy to be aboard. I have only been playing since March 8 but I've been told that what I've accomplished in such a short time boggles the mind. Sometimes I practice for 6 or 7 hrs without a break. I've never really had a lesson, I am self taught. I started out doing some pretty heavy stuff like Steve Harris but I haven't mastered many songs yet. I am a work in progress but would like to commit to a "work in progress" band. I hope to learn a lot on this site.
