If you cant play it live, dont put it on a recording!


Hey everyone, been away for some time now and I'm getting to the point where I can almost say I play guitar rather being a learner. I can now describe my music style as classically based, rock centered folk

Musical Influences

  • Eddie Van Halen, Keith Richards, Lita Ford
  • John Lee Hooker, Slash, Angus Young, Billy Gibbons
  • Akira Yamaoka, Steve Vai

Favorite Recordings

  • For the purposes of this website I'll list the recordings that made me want to play guitar, rather than my actual favourite albums/recordings
  • Van Halen 1st Album, Ozzy Osbourne: Randy Rhoads Tribute Live Album
  • AC/DC: Live at Donnington, Silent Hill 2 OST Guns n' Roses: Appetite for Destruction
