At a fairly young age I started playing the acoustic guitar. At the age of 16 my father also gave me an electric guitar set for my birthday. With that I could finally start playing the riffs of my favorite bands, using the necessary effects. That got the ball rolling. I owe most of my progress to my own efforts, so I can certainly call myself an autodidact. It is therefore my ultimate goal to save people who follow the same path a lot of time and effort.
Initially, chords in particular were quite frustrating to learn. I had a lot of pain in my fingers, some grips seemed almost unfeasible in the short term and many musical passages that I wanted to play but didn't succeed quickly enough.
Over the years, my taste in music has been subject to constant change – sometimes even from one extreme to the other. I often knew alternating periods of instrumental rest and new ones of non-stop dedication.
After my studies I decided to broaden my guitar playing even more. I practiced for many hours a day, on both acoustic and electric guitar, focusing on heavy metal, classical baroque pieces and the fingerpicking genre. I took some lessons to improve my music theory and also taught myself how to read music.
Shortly afterwards I played a nice role with various bands as a rhythm and lead guitarist.
