It's time to introduce myself ;)

My name is André, i'm 23 years old and i'm from the south of Germany (Bavaria, yay^^).

I started playing the guitar, mostly fingerstyle, at the age of 7 and took private lessons until the age of 14/15.
The reason i stopped playing was that at this time i really hated the guitar.
My teacher's batshit insane finger excercise drillings and parents who forced you to take the lessons, since they paid a lot of money, was too much for the naive kid i was.
In retrospect i think i missed a great opportunity there.

Anyway, 5 month ago my girlfriend breaked up with me after 4 years and i was some kind of depressed. And what do you do if you're depressed? Right, playing the guitar ;)
And i really sucked^^
Eight years without real practice isn't good for your skill at all. And i almost stopped playing again since i was far away from that what i was able to play back then and that fact was almost as depressing as the break up^^
By a fluke however, a friend of me showed me a video of Sungha Jung playing "Dune" by Bob Evans. And, damn, the song "Dune" is one of the best songs i've ever heard and i really wanted to learn it.
If you don't know it, here it is: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BRyEr16bsGs
So i started again with basic right and left hand excercises and some of my teacher's "drillings" i remembered, and after three months i was finally able to play "Dune".
What a nice feeling it was :)
The passion was back, and now i'm playing all day long and i think i'm really in love with my two guitars (An Ovation Std Elite, and an Aria nylon string) =D
I'm still not even half as good as i was with 13 but the skill is slowly coming back^^

And here i am, because playing old school RPGs on the SNES is my second passion ;)

I've already submitted two fingerstyle arrangements i made:

http://www.gametabs.net/legend-of-zelda-ocarina-of-time/kotake-and-koume...

feel free to criticise. I'm still an arrangement noob ;)

And if you have some spare time check out my "band". It's mostly electronica with some rock and classical influences.

Welcome to gametabs, cyan.
There's no need to be that modest; Those are pretty decent arrangements for a noob (tho, I prefer the terms "rookie" or "newbie") although your Twinrova theme could use some tweaking. Same with your English ... I couldn't find any major mistakes, just those lower case "I"s and "breaked" which of course would be "broke" in the past term.
Well, so much about me being a smart-ass. Once again, welcome to gametabs. ^_^

I think this is a serious cause for depression. I've been in the same situation and I understand how you had to, man.

I understand you, it's not only you who feel depressed because of the situation. I also know this feeling. Calmerry helps me to deal with this. I don’t know what I would do on my own, because online therapy is great support for me and that helps me regain faith in myself.

Well to have the games
