    Hey everyone! My name is Yash. I am 23 years old. I am a student of medicine during the morning, an English teacher by the evening, and a guitarist at night! I am from India, but I've been living in Russia for the past five and a half years. That's roughly the same amount of time I've been really playing guitar (which is 6 years), though I bought my first guitar in December 2010.

    I've had many breaks in my guitar playing. Three of them spanning a year, and then there have been few which spanned 3 months or so. But, I've been really getting serious and digging in for the past year or so, playing very regularly and actually progressing as a guitar player.

    Gearwise, I play -
    - A 2013-2014 Jackson King V Pro, with Alder body wings, maple neck thru construction, ebony fingerboard, EMG 81 and 89 in the bridge and neck respectively, and a Floyd Rose 1000 series trem
    - A 2017 ESP E-II Arrow 7 string with Alder body wings, maple neck thru construction, ebony fingerboard, EMG 57/66 combo and it has an Original Floyd Rose.

    Here's a picture of them

    As you may tell, I love V's :D I also like Les Pauls, Superstrats, and Explorers, and all other kinds of pointy guitars.

    My favorite guitar players and influences are - Dave Mustaine, Matt Heafy, Corey Beaulieu, Matt Tuck and Michael Paget, James Hetfield, Jimmy Page, Slash, Randy Rhoads, John Petrucci, Mark Tremonti, Myles Kennedy, KK Downing, Glenn Tipton, Janick Gers, Adrian Smith, Dave Murray, Gary Holt, Chuck Schuldiner, Nergal, Marty Friedman, Chris Broderick and most recently, Dave Davidson. I might have missed out some but these are the main ones.

    My current goals are -
    - Getting better with my lead playing, as I am a decent rhythm guitarist.
    - Learning some solos by Megadeth, Trivium, and Bullet For My Valentine
    - Getting better at vocals
    - Covering Bullet For My Valentine's debut EP, The Poison, simultaneously doing rhythm guitar/solos and lead vocals
    - Buying a Jackson KV1 Dave Mustaine signature
    - Buying an ESP Dave Mustaine Axxion
    - Scoring any other cool guitars along the way :)

    Feels good to be a part of the forum.

    PS - Sorry for necrobumping a few threads in the classifieds, I hadn't read the rules at that time. My bad.

    Have a nice day/evening/ night, whatever you're having over there.
