Started playing the guitar when I was 12 after watching Frank Zappa play "I am the Slime" on a rerun of SNL. I have been playing music since 2001; mostly electric guitar/bass and singing but have dabbled in piano, harmonica and ocarina. I had a strong interest in Music Theory while in high school and read a few books about it, song structure, and music/lyric writing.
I have played in a handful of music groups, one was a typical "bar band" that covered many artists, one was a rock and roll group for whom I wrote most of the music, and the last was a ska band.
I currently play a Gibson Faded SG Special, Fender Standard Stratocaster and Ibanez Artcore AF75.
