My Musical Knowledge

Instruments I Play:

Electric GuitarYears Playing: 22Proficiency: Advanced
Steel String Acoustic GuitarYears Playing: 16Proficiency: Intermediate

My Approach to Learning and Playing:

I like to learn through tablature because I do not know how to read music. I also sometimes learn by ear just cause I don't have the tab or whatever. I should learn how to read music though, my younger brother is a music major in college.
 
My Musical Education:

none.
 
My Musical Influences:

My Uncle
 
My Learning Resources:

Tablature, and my Uncle.
 
About My Music:
I am going to write in here about my work, cause it's related. I build guitars at Martin Guitars in Nazareth. I have been working there for 6 years on the factory floor. I work primarily on the body of the guitar. I have two videos of jobs that I can do that I can post. Most recently I have been learning one of the hardest jobs in the plant. That would be "fitting" the neck to the body before it goes down to the finishing end. This job directly affects playability of the guitar via bridge height and neck angle. It's a cool job.

This is the first guitar I bought after I started working at Martin Guitars. It plays pretty nice but I would rather have an acoustic with a dovetail neck joint rather than a mortise and tenon. it still plays beautifully though.

I don't know when or how much I paid for this guitar, or even what color it was when I bought it. I ripped it apart completely, painted it and put it all back together. i have decided I want to put some Seymour Duncan's in this thing and breathe new life into it for Slayer rehearsal's. This Ibanez was Made in the USA
