ABOUT

i would like to consider myself a well rounded musician. my forte is guitar, my Acoustic style is mostly contemporary i like playing in dadgag and expirementing with fret tapping, but i have a strong background in more traditional styles ( i just like playing things that are a little unordinary). I also play electric alot i have to admit that i have a weakness for heavier music i love the energy and punch of a good breakdown, but once again i have backgrounds in many styles including some blues and a little jazz. I dont have alot of great band expirience but i love the feeling and energy in a really great jam (which alot of people suprisingly dont know how to do) but most of my time i spent recording my own music at my home studio so i have basic skills in most band related instruments ( elementary keys, bass, drum, and other percusion). one time a friend of mine told me that i could pick up any stringed instrument and make it sing and i thought that was really flatering. i also have a strong background in vocals contemporary, traditional, and DEATH!.... sorta CONTACT: allenbsu
