Music is a wonderful gift and without it we would probably all be very depressed! It can lift our mood and make us sad, and everything in-between. This powerful phenomenon is what first attracted me to music, the emotion of music was what moved me to play, not the guitar itself. I always try to be the best musician I can be, to me there is a big difference between guitarist and musician. To be a musician takes many more skills and that is what I constantly strive for - balance and musicality.
