My Name is Kevin, I am 29 Years old and live in Hannover (Germany). I started with music as a Child, when I got Violin lessons. It really wasn’t that much fun, but I stuck with it quite some time. After that I had an off-and-on-relationship with guitar for about 10 years, and then stopped playing music all along for a couple of years.
But then - Covid! Suddenly I had a loooooot of spare time and started making music again! I found JustinGuitar pretty quick and loved it! I started with Modul 1, Lesson 1 and did every lesson, until Modul 5 over the last two years. It was great, because I could finally fill in the blanks that I had.
Right now I am playing a lot of Fingerstile stuff, like Jazz arrangements, and already posted one video here in the forum. Really thankful for your great feedback I am super curious for the Jazz Lessons in Module 6, but I promised myself to not skip lessons, so I think ill stuck in module 5 for a while still (It is great content anyway! )
So… In a pretty chaotic world (I know, very dramatic), with my guitar I finally have something that would depend on anything else but the work I put into the instrument. That really helped me a lot, and I am super grateful to Justin and his wonderful team for this gift that got me through the last 2,5 years So, thanks a lot to everybody involved - I couldn’t have done it without you!
A big hug from Germany,
Hey Kevin, welcome along!
That’s some musical background you have there, I think many of us relate only to well to Covid being a kickstart either into or back into music. Sounds like you have a pretty diverse skillset as you’ve already shown in your AVOYP post.
Terrific to have you with us, no doubt you’ll take alot from Justin’s courses
Without any doubt, Justin is the best!
Welcome! I saw your first post and you sound great, looking forward to hearing more stuff from you.
Ein wunderschöner irischer Name, den du hast, Kevin
Welcome to the Community-
I hope you enjoy your participation
Hey Kevin, welcome to the community. My family is originally from Germany. Glad to hear you are enjoying the guitar.
Weil, thanks a lot to all of you for your warm welcome!
Quick question, how can I add a video directly to a topic? Everybody else does it, I only managed to add a youtube link
Hello Kevin and welcome to the community.
It’s great to hear that you rediscovered guitar again. It bring so much happiness to life.
Yes, happiness in life for me… but also, it annoys my wife.
Thanks for adding and Intro and sharing some of your background, Kevin. I look forward to your continued participation and continued sharing of jazz standards.
Hello Kevin, welcome to the community.
If you paste a youtube link on the same line as something you have typed it will only show as a clickable link. If you paste it following a ‘Return’ on your keyboard, on a brand new line, it will embed the video.
example 1 … [ if you paste a Youtube link here, it will show just the link ]
example 2 … if you paste a Youtube link
it will show as a video pane and can be played within the topic.
A big, rather hot, hug from England Kevin.
Hallo Kevin, wie geht’s?
Have fun and enjoy.
