I'm a redheaded kid(and i'm not a ginger, damnit). I can play everything u need for a basic band(guitar, bass, drums)the keyboard, and I can sing. music is my life and future because it's what i love to do. I'll probably be a session musician after going to college for music. I like to read and write but I usually don't have a whole lot of time to do either of those.
I have a black Epiphone Les Paul Standard with gold Grover tuners, an electric blue Fender Stratocaster, a Line 6 Spider Jam, a Voodoo Labs Sparkle Drive, a Boss DS-1, a Boss CE-5, a Boss CS-3 and a Crybaby Wah which i don't use much.
i can play a lot of songs. Simple as that. Pm me for more details if you really care.
My CD collection contains a lot of different styles. I have some classic rock, some prog, some hard rock, some jazz-fusion, some jazz, some blues and a lot of other styles.
I know quite a bit of music theory, more than most people my age. So much, in fact, that most people can't keep up with me.
My favorite singers(cuz i sing)are Chris Cornell, Eddie Vedder, Bruce Dickinson, Serj Tankian, Maynard James Keenan, Jimi Hendrix, Mark Lanegan, Thom Yorke, and Robert Plant .
I've developed a pretty good ear, meaning I can kinda pick out bits of songs and figure them out and play them. I'm not great, but I can fix wrong parts of tabs and that's all I ever really want to do with that.
I found my dad's old record player and hauled it into my room and found a bunch of his good records. Like The Beatle's-White Album, Sgt. Pepper, Heart-Dreamboat Annie, Fleetwood Mac-Rumours, Yes-Fragile.
I post new blogs every once in a while so if you like my life, subscribe to my journal. they're kind of lengthy and are occasionally walls of text but, subscribe anyway. i write in a journal too so if I haven't posted a blog in a while, it's probably because i've been writing in my journal. Anywho, that's about it for now.
