ABOUT

Hello, my name is Jay! I moved to San Diego California in 2017. The first concert I saw in California was "In This Moment". At the end of the concert, Maria Brink spoke to the crowd and told us to chase our dreams. I couldn't help but feel she was speaking directly to me ... my soul. So I went home, signed up to ReverbNation and posted my music to toss it out into the world! Everything and anything is possible if you believe and I believe with all my heart. Thank you "In this Moment" for your inspiration!

My songs I created with the intent to develop them with others (drummer, Bas, singer). I take the noise that gets stuck in my head... try to figure out where it is on the fretboard and how to play it. I used to feel my skill was too simplistic as I am no George Lynch, Steve Via, or Eddie Van Halen. I now understand some of the simplest songs sound so kickass and stick in our soul… move us. It is not all just about technical skill, it's about emotion and sonic vibrations that make us feel. Also, I am horrible at playing covers and now you can’t steal my stuff when I play it in the guitars shop!

I tune at 432hz vs the standard 440hz. I also tune down one full step.

I use custom hand-wound Stonewall Villainous Slutty Wolf H90 25K Passive Bridge Pickups exclusively. They are available on reverb if interested or hit me up for more info on them, they are fantastic!

I use these as Scott "Stonewall" Miller was gracious enough to train me through his Luthier classes when I was Laid off and had no Job. It really soothed my soul and I am forever grateful for the opportunity to learn. Plus I no longer have to pay 30 bucks to have my guitars set up every time I change my strings with a Floyd Rose Trem! LOL.

I do all my guitar mods, frets, installs and setups myself.
