My name is Justin Marin, and I live in a small town in Indiana. I heard about this contest in guitar world so I thought I'd give it a shot. I'm 19 years old, soon to be a Dad, and hopefully one day my son will love playing guitar and will appreciate music the way I do. I've been playing guitar since I was in the 7th grade. My biggest influences to learn guitar were Dimebag, Randy Rhoads, and Zakk Wylde. Some of my favorite bands are Pantera, Necrophagist, Testament, Alex Skolnick Trio, Soilent Green, Megadeth, BLS, John Petrucci, and Jason Becker.
