I believe I have been playing for a total of 7 years. I decided to pick up the guitar when a friend of mine convinced me to start a band in high school at the age of 16. A year after learning my way around the neck, I was given the opportunity to join my school's Jazz Band. With the education attained there, there was a strong influence from that genre on my style of playing.
What was the first concert you ever went to?
Ozzfest 2005. I went to go see my favorite death metal bands, as well as my all time favorite, Iron Maiden.
What gear do you use?
I use a Martin acoustic guitar, specifically the (D-16RGT). For my electric guitar pieces, I use a seven string Shecter "Gryphon" (Diamond Series.
