Hack Guitar Playing
Yeah, so I’ve been playing longer than my skills show for it, but its a good way to make noise. Started way back at a ‘College Prep’ 2 week summer camp that I was attending (called ‘S.P.E.C.’ (South Piedmont Educational Consortium) at Pfeiffer University (located in where else of all places, Misenheimer, NC)).
This other attendee dude was playing the intro to “More Than a Feeling” on his beat up acoustic guitar and I was like ‘cool’. I had a old guitar but didn’t know how to play it, but i brought that thing back the second week of camp and picked up some stuff from him. So, thank you to the unnamed and unknown S.P.E.C. Dude. More recently, my playing has been influenced by Scholz, Satch, Vai, EVH, Ace, Ty Tabor, Rex Carroll, RR and Michael Sweet. Oh, and Oz Fox, Tony Palacios, Ken Tamplin, SRV, Kirk Hammett and those Skynyrd boys.
