A heartbreaking work of staggering genius

Me playing with Concert Club Live 2005

Peter Hsieh

Hello my name is Peter Hsieh and I'm a Guitarist. I play a variety of styles that include metal, blues, classical, folk and Jazz. For the past few years I have been playing on the praise team at the church I that attended. I have always enjoyed playing the guitar and learning about music and am honored to be able to share my passion and my knowledge with you here at Wholenote.

Random Reminiscence of People and Events

Current News

Nothing much. Hurricaner Katrina is a bummer for all those people that it effected and help is much needed.

On my Mind

I am so depressed, i don't know what to do. I feel like nothing, absolutely nothing. I am pathetic. I don't bust my finger playing guitar though cause I warm up prior to playing.

Currently listening to

Shivaree's "Who's Got Trouble" album. I recently bought it on the strength of their song "I close my eyes." The entire album is very good, it is edgy and seductive. I have The Supremes "Baby Love" stuck in my head. I am a big Motown fan, even though I play a lot of metal I still love to listen to Marvin Gaye, Smokey Robinson, The Supremes, and stuff.

Bible Verse

"For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord" -Romans 6:23

Words of Wisdom

"A wounded deer leaps the highest" - Emily Dickinson

"That is why I leap so damn high" - Peter Hsieh

Go watch it

A nice sunset, everyone spends so much time in front of a screen it is more beautiful outside and people don't know it. So grab a lady friend (or guy friend if you are a lady) and enjoy a sunset and each others company. (a hot drink is a plus)

Weapons of choice

I am currently using two electric guitars; a Fender Jimmie Vaughan signature stratocaster in olympic white and a Gibson sg special in worn brown. I have a Fornica nylon string classical guitar. I play through a 100 watt vintage Marshall JCM800 2203 head through a Marshall 4X12 1960A cabinent. I use a Boss MT-2 Metal Zone distortion and a Dunlop original Crybaby. My choice of strings are GHS.
