Hi,

I am Kevin Armstrong and I am 30 years old. I live in Glendale Arizona. I have been in to music ever since I was born. I started playing Piano when I was 3 years old when my parents bought me a toy piano. I started guitar when I was 13 years old. Both instruments I learned on my own. Through Elementary and High School I played in the Jazz band. I believe the music side came from my grandfather. He was a fiddle player in a bluegrass band and they made a few albums. His father was also a guitar player.

Most of the time I just play music on my own and make my own recordings. I just started using a program called Mixcraft. You can check some of my work at Visit My Website
Hopefully someeday I'll be in a band.

Also you can see me at myspace

guitarmasterclass.net has really helped me improve my guitar playing skills.
This is a wonderful site where we can learn a lot from each other.

One of my favorite guitarist is Eddie Van Halen I when I started learning guitar. His fast style really inspired me to play guitar. But lately checking out youtube and this site, there are so many other great guitarist out there with awesome talent. It's amazing how this site can really pull in talent which we can all share it together.

One thing though.. I'm not sure if it's the laptop-speakers i'm currently using, but the guitarvolume was a bit low in the videos.
