Here’s what I play like, look like, act like:
I don’t take myself too seriously and have a pretty relaxed teaching style. If you don’t connect with your teacher, lessons may not be as enjoyable as they could be. Lets have fun taking your playing to the next level.
25 years experience, 10 of those teaching. Influences are EVH. George Lynch, Paul Gilbert, and Jason Becker. Fave bands are Anthrax, Meshuggah, Strapping Young Lad, FNM, classic KISS and VH, AC/DC, and tons of other stuff..
I’ve done clinics for Ibanez, Peavey, Line 6, and current D’Addario/Planet Waves Endorsee. I really love aggressive music so teaching it is pure joy for me. I’m as much into rhythm guitar as I am lead, because in Metal, you need to have both of those bases covered.
