Bio:
I started playing guitar in the 9th grade thanks to Eddie VanHalen. I saw him play on MTV and had to learn how so I bought an old Strat knock off, painted it black with yellow stripes, stopped doing homework, and learned to play by ear and by watching videos of Eddie. I have been self taught ever since and really don't listen to Van Halen anymore. I played in a band breifly in college and also here in Asheville for a short period until the singer moved to Portland. I love to jam with friends and writing my own music at home. I play as often as I can. It's what keeps me sane.

Although I'm basically into anything with no singing, I've been into instrumental guitar since college and enjoy music by Joe Satriani, Eric Johnson, Steve Vai, Steve Morse, etc... you know, all the rock guitar gods that most rock guitarists know about.

I look for something you can't find on the radio. I've always loved instrumentals because I feel it's a gift to be able to move someone emotionally without the use of words to get your point across. (I also struggle with writing lyrics so that may be another hidden reason). :)
