I'm Matt. I've been playing guitar going on 5 years now (both acoustic and electric interests). From guitar stemmed bass, uke, piano, mandolin, banjo, harmonica, violin, and various percussion instruments. I've tabbed over 100 songs on this site, including a few album tabs. One of my goals is to make it into the top 100 users on this site, and I'm close! If you need any help with the tabs or artists I've contributed to please feel free to message me and ask!
My musical interests have molded my playing style and vocal style. I prefer acoustic versions of songs, which takes away the engineered portions, and leaves the audience with a more genuine singer-songwriter impression.
I listen to plenty of music, and not just a single here or there. If I like it I dive in. One thing I've learned about supporting my local non-profit radio station MPR's "The Current" is that popular, mainstream music is just a scratch on the surface.
