I've been playing guitar for about 7 years and recording songs for about 4 years now. I've been in and out of several bands of varying genres but currently I'm a solo act. I record anything from acoustic to heavy metal to proggressive metal to dubstep and I guess I'll be posting stuff up here from now on!
Why this name?
Well, it's my name...
How, do you think, does the internet (or mp3) change the music industry?
It's made the distribution of music almost instantaneous without the need for physical media. It makes it so easy for people to hear your band. Sales may be lost, but more people can hear about you and there's money to be made from touring!
Would you sign a record contract with a major label?
As long as they didn't restrict me by being major idiots.
A variety of guitar players influence my playing, some being John Frusciante, Paul Gilbert, John Petrucci, Steve Vai, Tosin Abasi among others. The bands I'm into include Biffy Clyro, the Mars Volta, Dream Theater, Animals as Leaders, Periphery and loads of others.
Fender American Deluxe Stratocaster and an Ibanez RG1527 are my main guitars. I also have a variety of pedals and amps but I mainly use Guitar Rig 4 for amp simulation and effects.
