About Mad-Mike_J83
I started playing at age twelve, so I've been playing over 20 years. I also play bass and synthesizer. I've played in many little local bands over the years between Alabama and Washington State. I also have recorded a few albums and a lot of EPs/Demos over the years.

On the player side, I tend to veer toward obscure, avant garde, and oddball music, though there's always an omnipresent metal-influence in my work along with some pop hook essence I guess. My general style suggests if The Cars were a metal band and Elliot Easton suffered from some mental illness that makes him think he's Buckethead occasionally.

On the techie side, the majority of my time I enjoy playing and occasionally tinkering with offset Fender guitars, with the Jaguar and Jag-Stang being my top two with neither really over-dominating the other much. I also enjoy exploring, modifying, fixing up, and tweaking cheap guitars as well as building new guitars both from scratch and from pre-existing parts.

Lastly, I have run a YouTube Channel under the name Creepingnet for over 10 years, I don't do too much there these days due to lack of time, but sometimes I'll post something new.
