Hello everyone! I’m Santosh Subramanian from Thane, India. I’m 36 years old and I’ve been playing the guitar on-and-off for about a decade now. I’ve always been a party player - strumming chords and singing. I finally found the time now to improve my guitar playing skills and music theory knowledge and just started with the PMT course.
I like rock, prog rock and metal; Pink Floyd, Porcupine Tree, Coldplay, Led Zeppelin, AC/DC, GnR, System of a Down. I also listen to a lot of prog house, deep house and trance when I’m working.
My guitar heroes growing up have been David Gilmour, John Petrucci, Joe Satriani, Jimmy Page, Slash, Angus Young, Jan Akkerman, Mark Knopfler and recently, Guthrie Govan. I hope I get to meet these legends some day.
It’s great to be here among this wonderful community and I’m looking forward to connecting with you guys and learning more about guitars.
Welcome to the forum Santosh
Welcome to the community, Santosh!
That’s quite a list of guitar heroes you put down there, amazing stuff to learn from them and their playing. Wish you lots of fun on your journey!
Cheers - Lisa
Welcome Santosh! Well, you have a decade of practice over me; I’ve just started learning. I hope you find Justin Guitar and the community as welcoming as I have. Enjoy!
Hello Santosh, Welcome aboard. I am doing the theory course as well and have just struggled through the triad theory part and had a massive moment of clarity at the end of it. well worth struggling through it.
Hey Santosh, welcome to the community. Worked with many Indians over the years and made some great friends amongst them. Good to meet another one
Hi Santosh and welcome to the community! All the best with your guitar journey (and with meeting your guitar heroes!)
Hello Santosh and welcome to our community.
They do say, it’s never a good thing to meet your hero’s.
Welcome to the forum Santosh. Your name is easy to remember because I work with a guy who lives in Bangalore with the same name. India sure has some smart people with great attention to detail based on my experience. Good luck on the guitar journey. I like some of the same guitarists. Enjoy the journey. Check out our videos on the record yourself and progress section my last video was by the offspring and will be performing that song Saturday for our open mic here.

Thank you for all your kind words and having me here guys. I’m now in module 4.2 of PMT and this course has transformed the way I see the guitar. Its been an awesome month!
I still have a long way to go before I learn all the notes on the fretboard though, but I’m getting there
The Open Mic meetups look great! I’ll have to plan something like that my peers from Mumbai if there are any here.
