Syn’s Tips

Welcome everyone! We are really excited to hang out with you guys as we take this deep musical journey together. The main thing to focus on is that We Are All Here to Help Each Other! We need to spend equal amounts of time learning from one another in the Comments Section Above as we do alone when we are practicing.

Everyone Has Something to Contribute! I don't care if you've never picked up a guitar before, or you are the best player in the world, we should all Listen to Each Other because the one thing that I've found to be true, is that everyone has something to offer!

When I listen to beginners about their learning process, their discoveries, or their favorite bands, at the very least, I learn how to be a better teacher because everyone learns differently. Most of the time, they've discovered something unique that I can apply to my own playing even after all of these years. Even better is that I may benefit from all of that, PLUS, I may discover new music that changes my life for the better, foREVer!

So don't waste any time, head to the "Lesson Comments" section below, or the "Community Forums" and introduce yourselves! You can even upload videos of you playing or demonstrating issues you may be having with a particular lesson. I'm keeping an eye out for those of you who participate the most to reward and recruit for my army of trusted educators!
Help Wanted!

Last but not least, Help Each Other! Answer questions and make comments. We can all acquire multiple lifetimes worth of invaluable information in this glorious age of technology because we can all communicate with each other on a global scale! That My Friends, Is Priceless!

Kylie Sepulveda Hey everyone! I'm going to introduce myself! Online I'm going by W1CK3DWEST which I know is a weird name to look at. It's simply pronounced "Wicked West" a name I've come up with based on a variety of things that influence me. Just like a lot of you here, I have been an A7X super fan for years upon years. I actually want to learn drums and have wanted this since I first discovered Avenged Sevenfold and The Rev in highschool (RIP foREVer.) Some years ago I purchased an electric guitar for theraputic reasons. I suffer from anxiety and depression and simply feeling the vibrations of the guitar really comforted those feelings. I used to write lyrics about some of my traumas and strum a few strings. I don't feel like a guitarist, nor do I feel like the little fingers and strings I put together we're worthy enough to be called songs and that's ok with me. Like I said I bought it to help me feel better and it did. That being said, thank you Synyster for opening this opportunity for all of us novices and those who are already experienced guitarists. I would very much like to actually learn how to play properly but don't have the money for lessons, and definitely can't seem to grasp guitar on my own. I want to play songs to sooth me, and be able to add music for the stories I want to write. I'm a bundle of ideas and feel like this will help me turn those ideas into something tangible!
