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!
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.
