Hello my fellow musicians... My name is Erik. I have been playing guitar for about 7 years now. I have a very diverse skill level when it comes to playing... I can play anything from blues lead guitar, to classical acoustic finger plucking, to super fast speed picking to a heavy metal jam... Just as an example, one of my main influences has always been Metallica. Even though I don't always necessarily model my music after their style.
I am knowledgeable in equal temperement. I am very familiar with equal temperement and how to write songs in a certain kay and how to write lead guitar in a key with the rhythm guitar...
The real reason why I am on here is because it has always been a dream of mine to lead the "Rockstar Life"... The biggest crowd I have ever played in front of was about 1,200 people at a battle of the bands concert a few years back. And that was one of the most outstanding experiences of my life. Just to feed off the energy from the crowd and watching everyone have a good time has always been an addiction for me. Truthfully, when I look at my favorite bands on stage, I get jeallous. I look at how a bands music can affect people and how crazy the fans can get. And that energy just completely overwealms me. Everytime I see a concert or someone on stage, I always tink to myself, "That's me... That needs to be me... I BELONG ON STAGE" But it all comes down to one thing, THE LOVE OF MUSIC...
But mainly I am interested in getting hooked up with a couple of people that want the same things I do. So if you have any questions, feel free to contact me. Via e-mail or my listed phone number.
