2.Who made you want to pick up the guitar?
Iam a rally big fan of Jeffrey Philip Wielandt or also known as ZAKK WYLDE he was my main reason for wanting one and a great influence.
3.Are you self taught or did you take lessons?
Iam self taught for the most part a very good visual learner but like everyone else I have picked things up along the way of course I feel if you aren’t learning something all the time your not really playing the guitar.
4. Can you read music, Can you read tab?
Just tab, I picked it up so fast plus I didn’t start playing tell after I was out of school so I didnt ever even think of sheet music tell I got the hang of tab an just playing in general. Wouldn’t hurt to learn though.
5.Do you feel like you have your own sound / tone ?
Yea I feel like we got our own thing going on that’s what separates us from the others We often at shows we have played have been called show stealers cause we are so energetic on stage.
6.Tell us about your guitar ( brand ,model . year , color )
1. Black Schecter owmen6 diamond series active pickups 2.Orange sunburst LTD EC-256 active pickups 3.Saint Black Jackson Dinky Arch Top JS32 DKA passive pickups
7.What about pickups? Passive or active ? Tell us about them 2 of my 3 have active and I love active over passive I think just cause of the tone the sound and we love to play loud so that really helps I can only turn my amp to like 3 before its loud to others.
8.Lets get into amplification,
Same drill brand , model , speakers etc Peavey 6505+120-watt 2
channel tubed head Randall RX412 cab 200 watt 4-12’’ Randall Jaguar speakers 8 ohm mono input 9.Do you have a pedal board? Tell us about that badboy Boss GT-1 multi-effects pedal really just use for solos an changing the tone from one song to the next or clean acoustic parts.
10..Now tell us your Dream Rig in detail…..
O man that’s pretty hard considering I have only played on so many rigs but I have always found Orange to be cool cause I dig the color of course an I played on one once and it sounded amazing but they are also pretty pricey but there is always new stuff coming out I feel if I found one I like next years model of course will be better. But ya if I could have everything Orange that would be sick.
11.What guitarist can you not stand?
Lil wyane ha ha ha ha ha but seriously people like Tosin Abasi from Animals As Leaders an Oli Herbert All That Remains R.I.P and not cause they sucks or I cant stand them but …. There not real there to dam good an there not real lol (joking of course) I12. Is tone more important or is technique? No tone is cool and all but tone will make a shitty guitar player sound pretty good but if you have technique an skill and know what your doing you can make any guitar sound the way it should ..amazing.
13. Name your top 5 guitarist
4.Stevie Ray Vaughan
14.Who is the most overrated guitarist ?
O shit there is a few but I would say kurt Cobain and if they gotta be alive id say Tom Morello
15.Who would you like a one hour private sit down lessons with anyone dead or alive?
Hands down Oli Herbert R.I.P he was a huge inspiration to me in my playing plus my favorite of all time and played for All That Remains which is a favorite band of mine
