My Musical Knowledge

Instruments I Play:

Electric GuitarYears Playing: 45Proficiency: Intermediate

My Approach to Learning and Playing:

Sometimes I hear shit in my head and kind of work it out from there.
 
My Musical Education:

I played professionally for about 25 years. I was 5 when I got my first guitar. Then Windows 95 came out and I more of less walked away from music altogether. As it stands now I have a Bachelors Degree in Music Theory and a masters in computer science.

I never really intended to get back into music. I have a bunch of certifications in programming and for a lot of years computers have always been my thing.

Couple months ago was I walking 2 of our pits and sitting in the garbage in front of someones house was a casio ctk-496 and I just knew what would happen if i brought it home.

I immediately noticed the casio had the action of an organ and only 61 keys so that was a problem. I wasn´t ever much of a piano player but good enough, you know?

Well.... It wasn´t too long before I started really thinking about guitar. Last month I got a strat off a crackhead for $50, this is NY after-all, lol and I´m hooked.
