My Approach to Learning and Playing:

I memorize pieces, practice them until I can execute them with the same nuances as the version I´m learning, then I play it with my own feeling and technique changes. I change parts of solos to suite my tastes, but I never make them easier to play. Some music I can figure out by ear, but other music I have to acquire it in writing.
 
My Musical Education:

Self-taught when I was nine years old from books. Took guitar class my freshman year of high school because it would be an easy A being that I already knew everything that the course covered for the year. It gave me a chance to meet other guitar players, to practice and to trade licks and chops with classmates.
 
My Musical Influences:

Jimmy Page, Randy Rhodes, Yngwie J. Malmsteen, Joe Satriani, Steve Vai, Joe Stump, Andy KcKee, Antoine DuFour, Luca Stricagnoli, Ewen Dobson, Darrel Abbot, and many more.
 
My Learning Resources:

Books, friends, magazines and now websites....
