Just trying to play emotions.....

Hi everybody! I'm 22 years old, and playing guitar (seriously) about 5 years. I like too much 80's hard rock/metal era, like Dio, Bon Jovi, Malmsteen, Mr. Big, etc. I started to play because of them. But, my musical preferences had gone wider through the years... now, I listen too much Coltrane, Miles, McLaughlin, Steve Morse, Paganini,etc. Now, I'm trying to build my style (I think everybody wants this), mixing all those influences, and mainly trying to emotionate people who listen my music. As soon as possible I'll try to put one MP3 file of my instrumental songs for you to hear. I'm playing in a Progressive rock band, too much inspired by Rush, it's called PRESTO, (you can download a song on our site) and I've got a Hendrix Cover Power Trio. Play with your heart and practice as much as possible!!! Life is good!
