About Dave Mierzwa
Hey I'm Dave. I've been playing for 2 or 3 years now, yeah at only that long I lost track of when I started playing! But I play lots of metal, as lame as it is, I love powerchords! But that's not all I'm good for. I play classical tunes, alternative, new age, and some random sound effects. Currently as of November 11, 2009, I use my red Ibanez Gio. I also have my acoustic by Epiphone, and two Fender Squires. One has an 80's neck too! Just a cool fact. I'm inspired by literally countless things and people. Love BLS, TOOL, Puscifer, A Perfect Circle, Bloodhound Gang, Iced Earth, Buckethead, The Misfits, John 5, Marilyn Manson, Rob Zombie, Ozzy, Judas Priest, Metallica is still old but cool as well. I use unique techniques to explore my guitars. I am willing to share them as well so others can learn. I make shapes on my fretboard, as well as patterns, both complex and simple. rectangle seem to open doors. I also use the same notes but higher pitches. I use my pinch harmonics as well. I like to lift, because I see so many skinny weak guitarist who, don't get me wrong, are cool, but cannot defend themselves against assholes and such. Therefore, I lift a lot and exercise constantly, to the point where people give me shit about it and say quote "Are you like addicted to lifting?" but it's alright because exercise only makes you stronger and more capable!
