I am fully committed to writing, recording, practicing, and performing music. I write lyrics and have quite a few songs written. This is what I want to do with my life. I want to make music. it is my passion above everything. I want to tour and everything. I can't imagine the rush you get up on stage, it is just what I want to do. I would play gigs as much as possible once I have the right equipment. \m/
Metallica is my biggest influence. James Hetfield, Kirk Hammett, Lars Ulrich, Dave Mustaine, Cliff Burton, Jason Newsted, and Rob Trujio. Other influences include: Robb Flynn, Jeff Hennemen, Kerry King, Phil Demmel, Steve Vai, Jimi Hemdrix, Chuck Schellenger, Jimmy Page, Scott Ian, Matt Tuck, Matt Heafy, Doyle Wolfgang Von Frankenstein, Arch Enemy, Bullet For My Valentine, Trivium, Tony Iomi, Black Sabbath, Ozzy Osborne, and I could keep going for hours...
my Dean Chicago Standard Flying V is my prized possession. I also have an esp/ltd 350fr. I have a couple of other guitars, but they're cheap and not worth mentioning. my amp and pedals are where I need to expand. I currently only have a Fender Mustang 1 and a Boss DS-Distortion pedal. I will be getting a job soon and will be able to afford a bigger and better amplifier. I use 62-13 gauge strings on my Flying V and play in drop b, but I know how to play in standard tuning as well.
