My name is Anthony, and I've been learning from this site for over a year now, but I was never able to be as active or involved as I wanted.
To sum it up, I didn't have a computer, so I had to use my phone to watch lessons and I had a lot of trouble with missing backing tracks on lessons and being able to post videos. Now I have a laptop, and I'm able to load lessons and interact with the site a lot more fluently, so, hell yeah!

When I was first learning I was self-taught, and picked up a lot of bad habits. I relied on YouTube and random people who claimed to know guitar, when they really didn't. I used to have literal daydreams of Syn being my teacher, showing me how much of a dumbass I was at playing guitar, and helping me become a fucking shred-master. So once this site launched, I was ecstatic. Granted, I had to unlearn a lot of ingrained improper technique, but it was well-worth the struggle. I had a friend I met at the college I'm attending help me out (he's a Jazz Studies Major!), so I'm forever grateful to him, as well as @Jak Angelescu for being such an inspiration and amazing help. I would annoy her with videos of me playing and questions about guitar, and she'd give me genuinely helpful feedback- not to mention she's an absolute beast at guitar. Thank you so much, Jak!

Alright, this post is getting long enough, sorry. Here's to the next generation of epic guitarists!
Thank you so much Syn and Papa Gates!

    It's awesome to hear that you enjoy the school so much man! It's certainly a fantastic way to learn guitar and an even better place to chat with nice and knowledgeable people.

    Welcome to the family Anthony. As someone who also recently got back to studying guitar, I know how you feel, even though my reasons for not being involved were different than yours.

    You're gonna love it here and there is so much to learn :D.
