Well, where do I begin. I'm currently a student, going through hell to be an accountant. During my free time all I ever do is listen to music and play the guitar. I'm an audiophile, in constant search for quality audio and audio products. I also have G.A.S aka Gear Acquisition Syndrome, but I'm too broke most of the time to get what I want so I just window shop, the window here being my Windows 7 OS.
What I listen to? Too many to mention. I listen to every genre out there, but as much as I try to open my ears to every type of music genre out there, I'm a metal head at heart. I do require a daily dose of screams, growls, double bassing and shredding.
The type of guitar player I am? I believe amps are the fundamental to any good sound, and of course your hands. No guitar effect in the world could make it sound better if those 2 are not present. However if I had to choose which guitar effect I couldn't live without, it would definitely be delay. They just have a way of creating ambiance and atmosphere.
I believe in stamina and technical abilities, this may not be everything, but I want to be able to express myself without any limitations. I believe in playing in various situations and genres, to force myself to apply what I know in different ways; And I strongly believe in improvisation.
