Got my 7VSBL on the 18th of may, just over a month now... feels longer.
I have been playing for 3.5 years now, and would say I'm an intermediate player, but improving swiftly. Since september I have felt my playing increase tenfold. I started taking the music AS course, have an amazing teacher (theory, composition) and a good guitar coach, who has inspired me into different playing styles.
The music I listen to has changed a lot, moving towards areas such as instrumental, world music, trance, dance, everything I can get my hands on. When people ask me what I listen to now I have a great problem answering! I usually reply, anything that's good, and anything with interesting guitar playing.
Getting my JEM, (and not to mention talking on JEMSITE, using the internet, and talking to the guy I bought my guitar from) has inspired me to practice more, and given me more things to practice.
There has been a downfall to my huge increase in playing... my piano playing has suffered, but I'm looking to improve that aswell.
God what an essay.
