ABOUT

The first time I learned about music was when a parent in fifth grade taught a few kids including me some Beatles songs, but I was told that I have to get good grades in school to get anywhere. I'm done listening, and I want to put all of the energy I have into what I really love.

I'm looking for a teacher or some people at or above the same level as me so I can learn and grow. All I know right now is the Intro to Castles Made Of Sand - By Jimi Hendrix and daily exercises that help improve speed, strength and dexterity along the fretboard. I do know a few other things but I want to focus on what I really want to play.

I work on my skills daily and I'm writing a sort of guide book for myself since most of the information online is a little confusing or contradictory. Most of the time I play and learn until I'm too tired to stay awake.

I'm not looking to play with or learn from negative people; if our personalities match then I want to learn as much as I can. Even if that means failing to victory.

I'm looking to focus on anything that has deep roots in the Blues.

I like to think of music as a sort of meditation or inspirational ability.
