I'm Patrick, I'm 20... Music has long been a part of my life and I enjoy it thoroughly. I'm currently a classical guitar and audio post-production double major and spend a good 90% of my available time on my craft.
Here's some of the stuff I play and how long I've played for:
I dig just about anything and like to remain open-minded when presented with new styles and material. Jazz is sick. So are these guys:
- Charlie Parker
- Dizzy Gillespie
- Arturo Sandoval
- Michael Brecker
- John Coltrane
- Miles Davis
- Wynton Marsalis
- Louie Armstrong
- Jaco Pastorious
- Charles Mingus
Be adventurous. Look them up.
If you want to talk about music, gear, composition, technique, recording, blah blah, etc. Or just about anything in general, feel free to ask/message/add me.
