My name's Travis and I love music... just like everyone else on this forum haha. I've been playing guitar since I was 13 or 14 and it's been great, it saved me from video game addiction. I'm not the most technically skilled guitar player and I blame it mainly on my short attention span and my lack of a good teacher until recently. My teacher has been helping me with theory and lead playing and I'm getting better. My rhythm playing is better than the average chump though, I love funk rock. My main influences are John Frusciante, Dave Navarro and Mike Einziger. I currently jam with a bunch of different people but I haven't found any real connections other then with my brother who's a drummer. He and I along with his friend who plays bass are looking to start a band together and as a result, I'm working on songwriting and singing. So far it's going better than I would have thought.
I also enjoy reading, history and politics. I'm a pretty shy person around people I don't know but I have my close friends whom I'm comfortable to be outgoing around.
