Hey there all :)

I'm Anomaly, or at least, that's my name is on this forum. 8) I'm thirteen years old and live in the Netherlands.
As a lot of people here, I just started playing the guitar, maybe a month or two/three ago. My dad is a guitar teacher, so there was a big chance I'd be caught by the guitar-virus sometime. Well it has happened now, and although I was already lurking around these forums for some time, I just decided to register about 5 minutes ago.

I'm using a Squier Strat and a small Squier amp, borrowed them from my dad :).

As for my repertoire:
I don't really know whole songs, just intros and stuff like that. Most of the time the things get pretty hard in the middle. However, I can play Old Yellow Bricks by the Arctic Monkeys Anyway, now I'm working on Californication by the Red Hot Chili Peppers and Holiday by Green Day. I've got the Californication intro pretty much down now :wink:

I've already learned a lot about all kinds of things on these forums. Keep on going like this, guys!

Welcome, Anomoly
If you ever get a video camera, video your guitar playing
and post it on the Hear Here board on the Beginner's Video thread.
It will be something you can look back at periodically to see
your progress.

Enjoy the journey,

It's the rock that gives the stream its music . . . and the stream that gives the rock its roll.

Hi there, Anomaly, and welcome to GN! If you make as much progress over the next few years as our resident Dutch genius, Ingar Hillstrom, you'll be well satisfied!

Sigh - wish I'd started to play guitar when I was 13.......sigh.........

:D :D :D

I think we scared him away.
He hasn't been back.
What did you do, Spides?!

Fine to hear/read such nice replies. I hadn't checked back here in a while because of internet issues, so you haven't scared me away. :D Anyway, I'm planning to go play some random songs with a friend of mine. He plays bass-guitar, so that's cool!
