Heavy metal poisoning

guitar=life

Hi, I'm Adam Roy! I am an absolute guitar addict, and I spend hours every day playing/teching them. I like many kinds of music, everything from folk to funk to speed metal, but my favorite styles are acoustic folk pop and thrash/speed/power metal. Also, I've been significantly influenced by stoner metal such as Kyuss and Fu Manchu. I play in a thrash metal band called Arrakis, as well as writing and recording my own folk-pop project. I play three guitars, a fender HH standard strat for my electric, a johnson player series dreadnought steel string, and an old catalyud y gisbert nylon string.
