Touched my first guitar at age 8 , got the electric one with an amp for Christmas 1971 , was off and on with music during the 70s , very cool time to experience music and the changing culture of the time . I never took a guitar lesson. I feel more from a single note from BB King than I do 1,000 notes from Yngwie Malmsteen. I play mainly a blues rock type of style . Hendrix , Trower , Derringer , Blackmore , Nugent , Zappa , Page , Beck , Cash , and Young are my main influences. You will hear and feel all of them in my music at one time or another. I play from the heart not the hip , and I don't practice to any particular pattern or scale I try and free style while practicing as well. Most of the notes I play are intentional . Some may seem off to those who study music and find themselves having to conform to some unwritten musical law pertaining to structure but I bend and shake notes in order to capture the emotions I am feeling inside so I can release them through the tips of my fingers . I usually tune a half step down from E to D# ...
