Doug DiChiara / Bio

It started when I was 16 years old.New Years eve .While shooting fireworks in the street,my neighbor throws a bottle rocket.It shoots for the ground,bounces up,and hits me straight in the eye.I couldn't see anything for a few hours.After that,I couldn't see out of my left eye at all.After emergency room and Doctor visits,I was put on bed rest for 2 weeks with both eyes patched.I was bored to death,but had an old acoustic guitar that I never played cause I didn't know how.I had my mom hand me the guitar,and I started figuring out songs while the radio was on in my room.I learned 2 songs in no time and couldn't wait to get the patches off my eyes.When the 2 weeks were up,I could finally see what I was playing.I've been playing guitar ever since .Although I am partially blind in one eye.I'm not sure if I would be a guitarist if the accident didn't happen,but I'm kinda glad it did.If that makes any sense.I am self taught.I cannot read music,but I can figure out things in no time playing by ear.I've also taught myself to play bass guitar,drums,and some keyboards.I can sing,but I don't like the sound of my voice.It's pretty unique and that can be considered good or bad.I've played in many bands over the years.I write songs with lyrics and without.I am passionate about my work and hope to get bigger as an artist.I just have to cross paths with the right people.Enjoy the music.You will always find something new here~~~DiChiara "Sweet Fingers"
