What you could do now is get some lessons from a good teacher and use the new knowledge to improve slowly and then you will see a big difference if you practise like the teacher shows you!  8)

Been thinking about that recently, Johnny.  

I feel like I know a lot in my head but very little in my hands, and I never know what I should do to focus in the right direction.  I've even gone right back to basics a few times ("hold the plectrum between thumb and forefinger"), but it gets boring very quickly.

Anyone know any good teachers in the London area?


Yes I do Philly Q! I put this info up i the past and two, how shall we say, uneducated ego trippers shot it down, or tried too!

The mans name is John Mizarolli. He has a website www.guitarguru.co.uk

Don't be put off by the hippy nature of this site! Music is more spiritual than most would like to admit.

He turned me around as i was just like you.

He will asses you and then put you through the mangle. But it works and you will improve if you practise what he teaches you.

He is jaw dropping good.He can improvise in any scale or mode, in any style.

Do it Philly Q!!   8)

my friend borrowed the best of van halen out of the library (this was about 6 or 7 years ago) because he remembered jump was good. of course, the first track on it was eruption...

that was it for me. the minute I heard eruption, i wanted to play the guitar. I had always known guitar was cool etc., but at that time, there wasn't very much guitar-heavy music out. stuff like oasis, etc.

I used to be able to play the tapping part of eruption pretty much bang on. i've not tried for years as I stopped the tapping habit, but can still do it now and again. It became uncool! Well some said it was but i think it still is! (cool i mean!)

I can play a few Oasis songs as they go down well at house partys, well they used to anayway!  :lol:

Ignition: a few high points

Brian may and Queen - because obsessed when Crazy little thing came out (1979) and fell in love with their back catalogue. Although seemed pretty complex to a 14 year old

Def Leppard - Let It Go /High and Dry LP (1980)  what great riffs!!!

Kiss Alive - that album with its simplicity but geat energy
I wanted a flying V after that - ended up with a classical with high action :(

MSG (1982) - OMG!! Schenker just had it all as far as i was concerned
Blizzard of Ozz - Randy was simply awesome
Motley Crue - too fast for love (original Leathur version - not Elecktra)
Ratt - first EP and Out of the cellar

1984 - Dokken Tooth and Nail - Lynch became my idol - more so than EVH
www.felineguitars.com - repairs & custom built
Great fretwork!

:D Blimey this is difficult !

We had to learn an instrument at school, I liked guitar so i picked that. It became obviuos that i had a "musical ear" so i stuck with it. I ended up learning Beatles songs & realised that you didn`t just have to play all that old S**t that you had to learn when i was a kid. "Lay Down Your Head Tom Dooley" "Swing Low Sweet Chariot" etc etc. ignition point was

AC/DC "Highway To Hell" album Motorhead "Bomber"  & the "Metal For Muthas" album [ yes i`m that old i was there for NWOBHM ]

Later it was MSG & the single "Armed & Ready" Ozzy BoOz "Crazy Train" & EVH Oh & Purple.

 :D  8)
God I could do with a Gin & Tonic !

For you young`ns.......When people my age started playing the music industry hadn`t worked out yet that we all wanted to play Johnny`B`goode so they wouldn`t release the songs we actually wanted to play because of copy write law. So we all had to learn old blues based hymns & such.  :roll:

You lot with your Tab dont no your born !!  :wink:

hahah the majority of tabs on the internet seem to be cr@p anyway, I try to work out as much as I can with my ears but sometimes I just cant find the right note so use tabs for a bit of guidance. The other guy in the band I'm in relys on tabs for EVERYTHING. I had to work out and tab out the rhythm guitar bits for Mr Brownstone for him because he found it too hard   :roll:
