Swelling Times

Some info about me

Welcome. If you are here then you obviously want some info about me. Well here goes. I started playing guitar when I was 16. Never took a lesson until I turned 18. And then, I only took 4. Rock and Metal are my interest. Maybe a little blues. I quit playing for 4 years. Something I regret now. I started up again early last year. Thanks to the internet I have learned more in this past year than I ever did before. I am now trying to put together a CD of instrumental guitar. Look for it in the far future.

At the Present

I'm waiting for money to gather hardware to start recording I am doing some serious work on technique. Something I should've started a long time ago. I just started going through Troy Stetina's book Speed Lead Mechanics for Guitar. Very nice book if I do say so myself. I've learned a lot in the past week that I've had it. If you are interested in building your technique and speed I highly recomend this book.
