If Tyler’s guitar is a Stradivarius then he alone is a modern Heiftez. Learning to play at a very young age, he possess many innate qualities of a student twice his age. From Bach to Rock, a multi-faceted level of musicianship is displayed as he drapes his guitar over his shoulder and strikes his first chord with a thick warm brown sound that pours out of his Marshall. His talents are not exclusive to his guitar playing, however. His passion for creating music lures him into other instruments such as bass and percussion. His newly formed rock band which bears the name of Burning the Open Wound demonstrates his ability to be recognized as a true virtuoso in his own right.
