:) Hey everyone,

I'm Lukas. In January 2016 I've started out seriously on the guitar, learning the basics (open chords, rhythms, basically everything that is within the Fundamentals 1 and 2 courses). However, that was all rhythm guitar :) Now that I switched to Fingerstyle (I simply love it! Definitely my favourite style of playing) I wanted to record something as well. So I got myself a new pair of mics and a new preamp.

I would like to use this thread as a portfolio for my own compositions/songs. The main idea is to transform new ideas that I learn (be it a riff, a technique, something theoretical etc.) into pieces (either studies or whole pieces) and to grow with them as a musician but at the same time to create something that serves me as a musical practice tool.

Feel free to comment on it. I am rather new to music and suggestions for improvement are always welcomed! :)

This is my second recording I did with the new mics. The first one was a small assignement that I'd got from Christopher, an instructor here on GuitarTricks.com. So if you have any suggestions on mic position, or camera angle etc. please let me know! :) I am really eager to improve.

The piece is called "WIll of the Unknown" and was originally part of a novel that I had layed out a couple of years back but I never had the possibilities to realize what I had had imagined back then.

It is still rather a beginner's version and will most likely serve as a ongoing project as I grow theoretically and learn new stuff to finally realize it fully.

Enjoy

Lukas

Very nice! I love the idea of turning techniques into a composition. How neat that you found your niche with fingerstyle guitar :)

Hey everyone

thank you so much for your kind comments! :) I really appreciate them!

It makes me happy that you like my music.

I want to share with you my newest achievement - I've re-arranged "Mary Had a Little Lamb" and added some section to it. It's my personal interpretation of the song and I really hope you like it. It's most likely different than what you may be used to hearing that title.

Enjoy it :)

Mary Had a Little Lamb (Version in Am)

I DID IT!!!

I've finally finished my huge project!

Ever since I started to play the guitar a year ago I wanted to make a suite/album/EP (basically a colleciton of pieces) for a special event.

Now I've finished what I'd started so long ago!

For the day where I'll ask my girlfriend if she wants to marry me I've written 7 original pieces for fingerstyle guitar.

Thanks to the theoretical knowledge I've acquired thanks to sites like this I've finally been able to accomplish my dream! The idea was that the first few letters of each piece form the question (translated from german) "Do you want to marry me?" or "Will you marry me?"

I want to share with you what I've written for her. It's the 6th piece (6/7). Below you can find the full list of songs.

[Will] Will of the Unknown

[st] Still in my heart

[br][Du] Ducœur

[Mich] Mi-chemin

[He] Heyho Blues (I'm new to you)

[ira] Irá al Jardin Inglés

[ten] Ten days in Albaida del Aljarafe

In this post I would like to share with you "Irá al Jardin inglés" :)

YouTube

SoundCloud

Thank you so much! I'm happy to be a member of this site! :)

Now all there's left is to see if she says "YES"
