    Awww have to rely on other people's quote to fight your own fight? And I am supposed to be scared of you... right

    Are you looking down on something said by Synyster Gates? Ooh, I think you are in the wrong place, then. Go to the Johnny Christ School. Wait a minute... there's no such thing, because nobody really wanna know how to play bass!

    The thing about bass is that you don't choose the bass, the bass chooses you. That way it filters out to leave only the very best to truly master the instrument, which is why you probably haven't been chosen. I dont need to go to the Johnny Christ school because Johnny Christ has been in my heart all along.

    I tried not to, but I laughed at the last sentence, because it actually sounded very cute 😂 awwww 🥰

    Here are some things I expect I'm able to do by the end of 2021:
    ★ Play either Fade to Black or The Unforgiven by Metallica, or Buried Alive by Avenged Sevenfold
    ★ Play and sing at the same time
    So these are the two goals I wrote on my post at the end of January!

    Speaking about the first goal, I started working on The Unforgiven on the last weeks (looking forward to post a video soon 🤔). I'm still working on the intro, but I'm liking the results so far! Let's see if I can get the full song till december.
    Decided to pick this one instead of the other two (Fade to Black and Buried Alive) because it's a very special song to me: it's the song that made me a fan of Metallica and the song that got me into metal, so I want it to be the first solo I learn because it just feels right. It also looks a little easier than the other two (hope I'm not mistaken 🤣). The plan is to get both Kirk's and James' parts, but since time is my weakness, if I see I can't handle both til the end of the year, I'll stick with Kirk's parts only.

    Now about my second goal, I achieved it and also don't 🤣 I mean, I was able to sing and play the acoustic part of Tonight The World Dies, and I'm already happy for achieving this on this year, but I can't play and sing EVERY song I want to, so I feel this is an ability that still needs improvement. For example, if I achieve my first goal, I would like to sing The Unforgiven too but I don't know if I can. I can't even think about myself singing and playing a song like Battery one day. But James do it, so it shouldn't be impossible even though it looks for me now 🤣 So overall I'm already happy with what I accomplished with my second goal, but I still want to go further so I'll keep working on it 🧐
