About Me and HOW-TO-PLAY-ELECTRIC-GUITAR.NET

Hi!
I am electric-fire, an owner of how-to-play-electric-guitar.net
I'm a guitar player, and also a web developer.

I'm not a professional player or trainer. Playing electric guitar is one of my hobbies and I've been doing this for more than 10 years, so far I tried variety of playing techniques, methods and tricks.

So I created this web site as one of my practicing projects early in my web development carrier to exercise coding and writing skills, while sharing some useful knowledge related to electric guitar.

The idea was to make a simple step by step lessons that would cut to the chase and allow to play cool things as soon as possible after the beginning to learn, cutting on many theoretical things and more accenting the practical knowledge.

Another good reason for working on this web site is to improve my English by writing all the articles myself. Please be patient with grammar mistakes ;)

If you have any questions about how to play, do this or that, use this link to ask your question.

I'm also available for hiring as a freelance web developer, Shell script writer for UNIX-like operating systems (GNU, various flavors of BSD and more) , and a COBOL programmer.

In addition I can help with website transferring from online publishing systems to a commodity web hosting where you'll be able to have complete control over your website and back it up locally. This very website was initially located on the SiteSell's SBI platform and I migrated it a few years ago.

If you don't know what Shell scripting is and how it can help here are some examples:

I can automate repetitive tasks such as batch file conversion from one format to another, let's say mp3 music files to the free and open Vorbis audio format (ogg extension) while, diving into subdirectories within the directory you specify. The same goes for image conversion, resizing and whatever needs to be done with images.

Finding duplicate files within a myriad of files, running 'find and replace' script that can deal with multiple text files (including HTML), so if you have a static website with thousands of pages and you want to change let's say your COPYRIGHT clause without manually opening and editing each page, it can be done quickly and easily.

I can write portable shell scripts that you can use yourself on most Unix-like operating systems (GNU/Linux, different BSD systems and some others) or you can send me your files with the description of what needs to be done, and I'll do the job for you and send the resulting files back to you.

As a web developer I can deal with static HTML web pages and dynamic websites written in PHP programming language.

Now about COBOL, I don't really have much real world experience with this programming language, as I started to learn it note long time ago but I wrote some programs for my own purposes using it, I like this language and I'm willing to work on projects where it's involved for a small fee or even for free.

I would also like to note that I use the free as in freedom software for the purposes described above. You can learn more about the meaning of free software here.
