Hi ! I am J4 - J to the 4th POWER ! I am 17, and have been playing guitar for about 4 years. My main influences are: Michael Angelo Batio, Yngwie Malmsteen, Dimebag Darrel, Herman Li, and Oziel Filho (Brazilian shred guitarist)
The song that I have chosen for this contest "Cross", written by Oziel Filho. It best shows what I can do with sweep picking. It's fast, yet melodic and it is one of my favorite tunes to play.
While my main passion is heavy metal shredding, I also enjoy playing classical and jazz. My goal is to attend Berklee College of Music. However, I am studying music at a local community college in addition to my high school studies.
I play with a few bands and write original music.
I found out about this contest last minute and just wanted to get it in before it was too late. So, not the best quality video but here I am.
