My Musical Knowledge

Instruments I Play:

Electric GuitarYears Playing: 27Proficiency: Advanced
Nylon String Acoustic GuitarYears Playing: 13Proficiency: Advanced
Steel String Acoustic GuitarYears Playing: 23Proficiency: Advanced
Piano/KeyboardYears Playing: 34Proficiency: Intermediate
Bass GuitarYears Playing: 15Proficiency: Intermediate
DrumsYears Playing: 26Proficiency: Intermediate

My Approach to Learning and Playing:

Learning songs like covers I use my ear always unless it is beyond my arsenal of licks, like Cliffs of Dover or something of that caliber, I use the sheet music or sometimes tabs. Tabs are usually written by ear players so their wrong most of the time.

Wolf Marshall does a fine job if transcribing accurate music. He works with the artists.

The rest I donīt learn, it just let it write itself.
 
My Musical Education:

Still learning! I think I almost understand something though...lol
 
My Musical Influences:

Sound,Vibrations and emotions!

Lars Eric Mattsson, Bret Garsed, Uli Jon Roth, Strunz and Farah,SRV, Eric Johnson, Marty Friedman, Yngwie Malmsteen, Jason Becker, Jarzombek,Spastic ink, All Scorpions Guitarists, Billy Gibbons, and the list goes on and on and on!
 
My Learning Resources:

Humans,
Oh, and lots and lots of books on all aspects of music and composition.
 
About My Music:

This is my main guitar I use on gigs. It has a scalloped neck that I did myself. I tried it on an acoustic and liked it so I did it to this guitar and now it is my favorite to play.

This is the 4-10 combo deville. I really like this tube amp because in small clubs it sounds great and for larger clubs I hook up a 4-12 cab and peal paint off walls.

My girlfriend got me this for my B-Day. It is the best practice amp ever in my opinion! I even take it to rehearsals. Great tone and 16 effects to choose. Most of the videos you watch of me if in my home are recorded with me using this amp.

You're very talented. This site feels pretty inactive though.

WOW!! Man you got some incredible skills dude!! I love all those tunes you got there!! heyre very well structured and sound fantastic (Flight of the Killer Bee is just plain freakin' crazy!!!), the mixing sounds great mate to be honest, the drums sound a little low in the mix on a couple of tunes but thats nit-picking because they do still sound great!! Can I ask what it is you use for your drum?? I'm looking for something to use myself because I lost what I was using and theres no way im buying it again haha

Lovin' the guitars, the 770 is beautiful!! And the nylon acoustings are stunning!!!

Ace profile dude!!

Hi Highintel,

Awesome profile I just got done groovin on your tunes... I will be watching your videos this weekend too. Thumbs Up

About the duel skill level... That was set before the duel Andro-Taz put it as part of the challenge. Its in no way a rating set by GKN or myself. This is a way to let people have some idea of the skill level of the person they were going up against when they accept the challenge.

About the error you saw... I looked all over the lessons ares but could not find this issue. Is it still happening? It could have been a result of the move. There were a lot of errors that needed to be fix... I got most of them I think but I wouldn't be shocked if I missed a couple (this site is really big so it hard to check it all). If its still happening send me a message with the url. Thanks for letting me know.

Lastly, I wanted to thank you for the great lessons you have added to the site they are all incredible.

Mike
