My name is JC. I play violin (9 years) and guitar (2.5 years) and take them both very seriously. I try to be open to all music but I am very picky about quality and elements in music. I compose and record my own music with a focus on fusing all sorts of genres together. I aspire to be a successful musician and would love to be able to do it for a living.
Currently I study jazz on guitar as a beginner. I can play rock and metal fairly proficiently and my style consists of lots of legatos as well as traditional and modern licks, phrases, and scales. My playing is most influenced by Marty Friedman. I've also been studying classical on violin for almost a decade. Right now I am mainly studying JS Bach's sonatas and partitas for solo violin.
