Did you take guitar lessons ? What was your practice protocol like and how much time did you practice per day ?? You are a real inspiration man. - Minas Kouroglou
When I was starting out I did take beginner lessons just to get going but after that I’m mainly self taught. I’ve never had a practice routine, I’ve been more about teaching myself songs by ear. Learning other people’s songs has always been a good way for me to get better and progress. And as a result I think I’ve become a better writer than player. I’m not a technical player at all, I have so many flaws that I don’t work on because to be honest that’s not why I’m playing guitar. I don’t strive to be a better guitar player. The guitar is more of a tool for me to make music really. I admire guitar writers more than technical guitar players. That doesn’t mean I don’t like shredders. I’m just a bigger fan of composition
Then there are people that have a combo of both qualities. People like Per Nilsson and John Petrucci. I admire those guys a lot!!!
