My name is John. I picked up guitar when i was 15 and have been playing for about 5 years now. My first guitar teacher was Tommy Girvin from Eddie Money and the first song i learned to play was Ride the Lightning by Metallica. Ive played in several local Metal bands including a Melodic Death Metal band named Depths of Anguish (Boise ID) and i currently play in a Folk metal band named Frostgarde in Temecula CA. Ive taken multiple music theory classes and try to apply as much of it as possible to my guitar playing/writing.
