I am a self taught guitarist who feels truly blessed to have music in his life. My mother is the one responsible for getting me started with music at a young age. After years of piano I asked and received a guitar around the time I was 14. However, I didn't start to take a major interest until I was around 18 years old. Without lessons and having only limited tools for learning I began to teach myself the guitar.
Playing and Influences
Some of the people who first got me interested in the guitar were Jimmy Page, Jimi Hendrix, SRV, Slash, and Jerry Garcia. As the years went on I became influenced by many other players. I try to stay open minded to all styles of music. There is so much to learn and because everyone approach is different, I feel I'll always remain a student of the guitar. GMC is not only where I come to work but where I come to learn.
I hope that I can open your ears to some players that haven't been covered yet at GMC. I also hope to share my playing approach and creativity with you. I like to think that we all influence each other. A super advanced player can be influenced by a beginner and vice versa. To sum it up, I am truly honored to be a part of this site. The super positive attitude of everyone at GMC is what keeps me here.
