Location: Budapest, Hungary
Date of Birth: November 21th 1982
Been playing guitar since: 1997
I started to play when I was 15 years old. I am a completely self taught guitarist, that's why I lost a lot of times learning the basic stuff.
My first guitar was a pretty old "Cremona" acoustic (3/4 size) , I remember that it was impossible to tune it as my first horrible "Monarch" electric which has only 20 frets ( the 21th missed) and its neck was like an S.
I ordered the Metallica's black album tab and I started to figure out what's in there.
I had about 50 guitars since I started to play until I found my current instruments which are the Ernie Ball Music Man John Petrucci models.
Aside from guitar playing I write lyrics, I sing, and a few months ago I started to play on drums and bass as well.
Playing and Influences
I love all types of music if it's played on instruments.
I played a lot of things in my life, pop, rock, metal, instrumental music, etc.
My first inspiration was Metallica, especially James Hetfield. First I just wanted to play "Enter Sandman" 's main riff, but when I saw the video of " Fade to Black " I knew that I also wanted to know everything about the solo playing.
In my playing I mix the different techniques and things that I learned from my favourite players.
My favourite guitarist are: Kee Marcello, Dave Martone, Guthrie Govan, Tony MacAlpine, Joe Satriani, John Petrucci, Michael Romeo, Steve Vai, Marty Friedman, Steve Lukather, Yngwie Malmsteen, Shawn Lane, Frank Gambale, Zsolt Daczi and Norbert Mentes..
