Favorite guitarists :
****MARK KNOPFLER**** (He's the one that made me want to play),
****MIKE OLDFIELD**** (He may not be the most squilled one out there, but I love the way he uses the guitar, he does so much with it!!),
****SONNY LANDRETH**** (He made me like slide, but...DAMN he's good!!),
****BONNIE RAITT**** (She's the only female guitarist I have respect for, out of the ones I've seen/heard/come across so far. She's amazing, I love her. Also one of my very very few female rolemodels.),
****G ARY MOORE**** (Does very MUCH with very LITTLE. Emotion, my friend, emotion. Uh, NOT emo!! (Haha)),
****S TEVE VAI****,
****JASON BECKER**** (I haven't heard too much from him, but I like the stuff I've heard),
****BRAD PAISLEY**** (He's country, but different, and very squilled on the guitar.),
****JESSE COOK**** (Oh, MMMMM. Sex for the soul, his music eh.)
Favorite bassists :
I'm not keen on them, but I like John Illsley and Paul Simonon. I especially like Simonon, I love listening to his basslines, and i'm not usually listening to those, to be honest. The Clash rocks!!
Favorite books :
I like thick books, and my favourite authors are James Clavell, Fjodor Dostojevskij (that's the Swedish spelling of his name, which I use, since my first language is Swedish) and Mario Puzo.
Favorite tv :
OOH, there's so much. I like comedy and fashion stuff, and ooh ooh, CRIMINAL SHOWS, I LOVE those. C.S.I. (all of them), Poirot, Miss Marple, crime on tv and I'm glued to the sofa!!
Favorite movies :
Amadeus, Beautiful People, Jaws, Quills
CALLING FOR YOUR ATTENTION!!! I don't want a million people on my friendlist who I never talk to. Don't just add me for the sake of it.
I'm a Christian countrygirl with a kind heart, green eyes and a loud laugh. I'm a bit random and silly, love to laugh and seem to confuse people a lot. I love history, I love meat and I hate makeup.
I love music, it truly is a passion. I've been a guitarplayer for two years and hopefully I'll get good one of these days. I'm struggling with a few things, one of which is my selfesteem. I'm afraid of the guitar, I'm afraid of never learning and getting good, but I'm developing more for each day and hopefully I'll be playing a concert near you anytime soon haha.
AAAH, I just wish I could get across just how much I love music and what it means to me. I guess I could post a video of me sobbing along to a cd, being all moved and stuff, but I think I'll leave that for another time :P . Sometimes music moves me to the verge of tears. It really is a big part of me.
I'm a very artistic and creative person (even if little oh me says so little oh me self). I've wanted to become a fashion designer since I was 8 and I actually started a three-year seamstress education, but then my heart cleared its... (arteries?) throat and told me it isn't what I really want to do. I would love to work as a designer for a big fashion house, but it isn't a big enough of a passion for me to want to fight and work as much as you need to, for it to happen. My heart humbly told me I want to make music.
I want to be like Mark Knopfler. I want to be like Mike Oldfield. I want to be like Sonny Landreth. Like Bonnie Raitt, Gary Moore and this is where you can start reading the list of bands I like, I probably wanna be like all of them.
I like talking, I like writing, I like analyzing and thinking a lot. I like being alone!! I'm a loner and I need my mespace (ehehehehehe) or I will get cranky and not only hate your guts for not leaving, but also make you hate me for being so cranky. I'm a very social person though, so yes I'm a social loner . I'm a little shy, but once I get to know people I tend to be open and loud and rambly. I like being funny and making people laugh and laughing with others .
I'm Finnish and proud of it. I'm a Finn-Swede and proud of it (google it).
Oh, and I also love dialects!! I wish I was Irish, Scottish or Australian. Maybe all...? I wish I could at least mock the accent and do a fake one, but no, hmpf.
