I've been playing for 4 years. I haven't had any formal training or lessons, so recieving lessons would help me build fundamentals. Dimebag Darrell inspired me to play, he is the reason why i picked up the guitar in the first place. I also have many influences, and i enjoy hearing other guitarist advance their skill, no matter what their skill level. I have an undying passion for music, and dedicate my entire existence to making good music for others t enjoy. Music is my doorway to salvation. thumps up to all the other shredders, you get my vote for entering. Like Dime said, "Smoke Weed!" Enjoy the tunes and get ya wings!
