- Squier Bullet Strat, black and white
- Schecter Blackjack SLS Avenger FR S in aquaburst. Fell in love with it at first sight so I bought it. It's mostly functioning as an art piece right now because it's way too much guitar for me to handle yet, but one day...Which guitar do you currently play on?
The Squier mostly.Which amp(s) do you own?
I play through an iRig HD connected to my laptop.How long have you been playing guitar?
About three months, then a break for a year, and just recently started again about a month ago.Which is/are your favorite music genre(s)?
My playlist is all over the place, but rock and metal are probably my current favourites. Not a fan of hip hop or R&B.Which genre do you play on your guitar often?
Anything from Justin's beginner course
Besides that, to give myself a challenge, I am learning the intro to Buried Alive by Avenged Sevenfold.Who are your favorite bands?
So many... Avenged Sevenfold, Marianas Trench, Baroness, Flying Colors, Coheed and Cambria, Dire Straits, Muse, Volbeat, Tori Amos, Placebo, Hell or Highwater, Radiohead, The Once, Everly Brothers,...What inspired you to start playing guitar?
A video of a masterclass given by Brian Haner Jr (a.k.a. Synyster Gates form Avenged Sevenfold). He talked about things like scales and picking and his influences and I became very intrigued with the complexity of the instrument. I also love how music theory combines art and maths.Do you play in a band or have you been playing in a band?
No, and that's not my ambition.Why do you play guitar?
Because it's relaxing and challenging at the same time.What are your goals for the future?
To learn how to tune and change strings on a Floyd Rose, so I'm less nervous to play my beautiful Schecter!
