Hi everyone, my name is Rick. I'm 36, and have been playing guitar since I was 11. I am completely self taught, learned by ear trying to mimic the sounds on old van halen records when I was a kid. I just joined because I have hit a plateau, and have been on it for the past 10 years. I just can't figure out how to get past this rut. I just can't improve on my own. I need some guidance, and a teacher. So I figured I would give this site a shot.
