I have been playing guitar for 23 years. I'm mainly a rhythm guitarist. I do a little lead, but not much. I am a songwriter/composer. I generally do variations of Heavy Metal. Leaning more towards Progressive Metal, and a Hip hop variant. But I do write in many differing styles. I have a side project of new age classical music. As well as I write songs in just about every style(Punk, Blues, Swing, etc.) barring Country, and Irish/Scottish punk rock. (They just don't appeal to me.)
