My Musical Knowledge

Instruments I Play:

Electric GuitarYears Playing: 19Proficiency: Intermediate
Alto SaxophoneYears Playing: 21Proficiency: Intermediate

My Approach to Learning and Playing:

I first taught myself how to play while reading GuitarWorld, I saw the tabs noticed there where 6 lines and six strings on a guitar, then I noticed the numbers put it all together and figured out how to read tabs, I also used a guitar method tape to gt me started, I was advancing pretty fast at playing until I hit a wall called Marine Corps bootcamp, then I didnt play for a few years now Im back at it full throttle, but I want to learn more picking techniques and how to play classical syle like Yngwie Malmsteen.
 
My Musical Education:

I took music education in highschool plus I was in the Band for 5 years, I am always watching documentories on Vhl and Vh1 classic.
 
My Musical Influences:

Angus Young is the man that made me buy my first guitar, His stage presence is amazing, I have developed a love for the music of Alice in Chains, I just love there dark sound,I also love, Aerosmith,Buckcherry, Godsmack, older Creed stuff, Staind, Yngwie Malmsteen, Steve Vai, Megadeath, and I could keep going oh yeah and Bullet for my Valentine is one of my Favorite new bands
