Jan's Guitar Journey

Aspiring guitarist and video creator.

About Jan Valkenburg

I started playing guitar when I was 35 years old. Shortly after I started with uploading videos to YouTube to create a log of my progression. And also to keep my self motivated and share my progression with you guys. Every other week I take guitar lessons at a Guitar school in my hometown Nieuwegein in The Netherlands.

I like to play rock/metal songs on my guitar. My favorite bands around the guitar are Ghost, Metallica and Rammstein. Also try to learn more play styles like fingerstyle playing and the normal strumming.

To give you guys an impression of my progression during my first 2 years of playing I have highlighted a few guitar videos below.
