This probably doesn't need to be said, but I'm a guitarist. I really have no discrimination between electric or acoustic, I cherish both for the range of sounds I achieve and the different moods I can tailor. I'm self-taught, can't read a lick of music, but basically just play be ear. I'm just starting to write music, but am never truly happy with it. That being said, guitar is a passion for me, not a career, so often I play just for the pleasure and the therapy of it, letting the products just dissipate into the air having served their immediate purpose.
Some other facts about me, I enjoy writing, and even more, reading. I always want to learn more, and deepen what I already know. My mind never stops burning, so I constantly have to feed the fire to avoid being doused. I also love hearing new ideas. Nothing increases one's knowledge better than by conversing with others, learning new sides of issues and ideas that help shape your own, adding more depth to them. One last fact about me: I have a self-driven liking for philosophy and psychology. I've never studied either formally, I merely study them with my own knowledge and shape my ideas as I travel through life.
