My name is Stepan (or Steve in English) I am beginer guitar player - sort of. I always wanted to play electric guitar - to play classic rock and metal, but after few weeks with accoustic guitar when I was young and few tries with guitars of my friends than I gived up. I couldnt figure out how to play with pick, which is somehow essential. I was too scared to learn it.
So I played a bass guitar at university (I still have it - but dont play it much nowdays) - since you can play that with fingers and there is usualy fewer strings.
Fast forward to now, when I am bit old to learn new tricks at 34 years old when I finally decided that I will buy my own six string electric guitar to try to play it. I risked and bought my first guitar used and online - but I think I hit solid piecefor that price - circa 2000s Korean made B.C. Rich Assassin neck-thru. (I did not wanted a tremolo on guitar, but…)
But the best thing is that thanks to JutinGuitar I can play it! Its Marvelous! I am very glad that I started again with playing - the courses are wonderfull! Many many thanks!
Well, the thing is most songs I like are played on electric guitar. Acoustic is por sure fine, but I always had problem with strumming patterns - when I tried to learn by myself I was lost and wasnt able to figure that out. Now with these lessons I think I will be able to play somehow Johny Cash songs. Funny enough I do not find using a pick that hard now.
Hmmm depends on the place where you live. Czech beers are very traditional Pilsner style lagers mostly - funny thing is that most big names Czech beers available abroad are the brands I would not touch with 10 yard pole Except for Pilsner Urquel and Budweiser Budvar these are OK. I will recommand Bernard beers. Lately small breweries with more experimental types emerged - “Pivovar Matuška” will be my choice of the best. Regarding the hops I am afraid I dont know.
Thanks! I could talk brewing all day. Rest assured that I have some ales with Saaz that are bottle conditioning as we speak. It’s a wonderful hop. Lagers and Pilsners are not in my headspace at the moment. I’m mostly doing American Pale Ale and American Brown Ale. Here’s a track that I recorded celebrating my first home brew which was an American Brown Ale clone named Caribou Slobber
Nice - I have had my litlle “lost in translation moment” because I was thinking that Saaz hops is some new think, where its our most known hops named after the town/region where they are from. I never thinked there is non-Czech name for it.
Meanwhile I bougt another guitar - another Korean made Epiphone LP custom…it was a bargain.
