I'm a high school student going to grade 10. I've been playing guitar since February of 2006. I started out on an ANCIENT (20 year old) acoustic, playing with the little things that hold bread bags closed. Then, i moved up to a newer acoustic and REAL picks. After that, i got into metal, specifically Metallica, thanks to my brother who is 12 years older than me. That lead me to pick up an electric guitar borrowed from my cousin, until i went out nd bought my own. I've been in 2 bands, one which i left recently, and one that i am forming now. I can shred pretty well, and i know alot of Metallica songs. Thats about it.
