Yo! I'm just a normal guy, born in the US from Asian heritage, but raised in Panama around Latin culture. Yeah, very normal . I've been playing "seriously" (although I rarely practice during schooltime...) for about 2 years as of Fall 2009. I enjoy listening/playing most type of music, except most pop and rap/reggaeton (gone are the days of Bob Marley.. ). I particularly like listening to hard rock, old school heavy metal, hardcore/emo and it's derivatives... but because I don't have a band to practice with, I enjoy playing neoclassical or instrumental guitar solo songs the most. Cheers!
