I taught myself to play guitar on my own for the most part, but I also took two courses at school.
I am currently trying to get my band project off the ground. I am the lead guitar/bass, and have a drummer as well as two axe men.
I like most metal and rock, but I'm especially fond of metalcore, grunge, and the Seattle sound. Other tastes are mainly post-grunge alt-metal, classic rock, and Indie.
-Baseball, tennis, and drag racing (drag's my favorite high school sport)
-Hanging out w/ my church friends! That's right!
-Writing new songs for Deadbolt Levi Lock (My Band)
-Modifying my ever-changing Strat. I call her Dear, because she's my safe girl that I always return to at the end of the day. Non- guitarists would find that weird. Hell, it kinda is weird.
-Soulless sellout music that all sounds the same. (Taylor Swift, anyone? You get the picture)
-People who can't appreciate the good in all genres of music. There's more than one, you know.
-Capitalists. For the most part.
