Love playing and creating music. I generally play in rock or metal applications, but really like jumping into the blues realm occasionally.
Music is the one thing I can't see myself living without. Not just listening, but creating it. Playing live in front of an audience is something I've always thrived on. Its a give and take relationship. I give a performance and "take" energy from the environment around me.
To play music I've helped write around the world and be financially successful for it.
Less xbox's and PS4's. A set limit on Netflix and youtube. More physical human interaction than what we've gone too. It's even effected live event turn outs.
Dirty deeds, done dirt cheap.
EVH, James Hetfield, Zakk, Nugent, Page, Black Sabbath, and Rhoads.
I wanted to get chicks, but looking back at it.. I should have worked on my abs instead.
Lets have a good time.
Free, confident, and amazing.
The dream of living on the road and playing year round is there. You can be successful if you have the will and the product behind you. Wether you're looking at a tour buy on, playing regionally for a while, or braving a West coast tour all on your own. There are ways of making your dreams happen. It just depends on how well you're prepared and how far you're willing to go.
Feeling it out.
As much as I can. I go to shows as often as my schedule allows. I generally am at rehearsals or playing a show when other local acts are as well. I do book shows and bring other regional and local acts on the bill as well.
This is completely subjective to the target audience. Some audiences enjoy polished-massive sounding mixes with crisp rhythm and lead lines. Others enjoy muddy fuzzed out tones and clipping vocals. To each their own, do what you think is the best.
