ABOUT

I am 28 years old and have been playing guitar since I was 7 years old. I started lessons when I was 9 on a classical guitar playing music from bands ranging from Eric Clapton/Tom Petty/Blink-182. My Dad loves classic rock so I am also a big fan of that genre. I took I hiatus from playing guitar during middle school because I was listening to R&B & rap (Ludacris/Dr. Dre/Eminem). At the end of middle school I started listening to metal/melodic rock (Metallica/Symphony X/Dream Theater) and was gifted an ESP Kirk Hammett edition electric guitar. This is when I started getting interested in learning music theory. During College I continued to play guitar but was influenced by a change of culture by going to university in Colorado. I started listening to Country music along with continuing my love for hard rock. After college I started my career in sales and decided to continue my love of music/guitar and took lessons under a veteran guitarist (85 years old) and started learning more about scales/chords. I am still learning the guitar and would like to become an expert during my lifetime. During my lessons with the veteran guitarist I took voice lessons and I really enjoyed singing while playing guitar. My voice teacher said I have a very unique voice. My career has taken me on many different paths, but now I am sticking in San Diego for awhile and would like to join a band to play music and see where it can take me. I am a very considerate and trustworthy person and would really enjoy joining a band who has the same passion for music as I do.
