ABOUT

I've been playing guitar for over thirty years and would like to play with others. I started off in my early teens training formally in classical guitar for a few months, then branched out to play rock music of the time (e.g. Ted Nugent, Kiss, Styx, Pat Travers, Frank Marino/Mahogany Rush, etc). In the eighties, I got into hard rock and heavy metal (e.g. Judas Priest, Scorpions, Ozzy Osbourne, etc) and some power pop (e.g. Joe Jackson, Plimsouls etc). Since the 90's, I got into different genres including jazz fusion. You can contact me at : "freddyfrets rocketmail . com"

Influences

Classic rock, pop rock, metal, jazz fusion. If I have to list musicians that got me interested in playing, it would have to be Jimi Hendrix for sure. Other notables that have re-ignited the flame are Frank Gambale, John McLaughlin, Paul Gilbert, Shawn Lane, the guy called "Buckethead", Ritchie Blackmore, and Eddie Van Halen. As for what my playing style is derived from, it is a combination of different guitarists in the hard rock (70's) genre.
