parents turned n the radio when i was a baby; it was the only way to get me to sleep... apparently white noise works too but go figure. for a long time i didn't know what i wanted to do, even though i knew i was quite capable in the arts... i can act, draw, write, always had a good voice and fairly decent taste in music. i used to play video games and watch movies a fair bit as a kid, i realised the main contributing factor for me enjoying these things was the music in them.

so a couple of years ago a friend gave me his guitar to keep, i learnt with that for a bit before buying a new one and going to uni to study music. i deferred because i am terrible at following curriculum's. now i go out and play several times a week. it's enjoyable because song writing clears my head and is communal.

as for the reason of doing it; i feel most at home whilst playing music. it's pretty important to me.

well, there was a point in elementary school(4th or5th grade) when my dad said that we had to do at least one year in band for the values that it brought. then at middle school orientation i decided that it would be cool if i played trumpet. so i was very good in beginning band, and i thought it was great to play a trumpet. so now i play in intermediate and jazz band for 7th grade. and im thinking about guitar without tabs, teachers, or anything. just the music i have and the music that i want to get.

I'm 18 now. I had just turned 15, in the Christmas of 2006 I got an acoustic guitar.

I was obsessed with Oasis, I was from Manchester, so were they. I could relate to it, and it's all I listened to. Say what you want about them, they opened the door for me to listen to rock music, they changed my life. I wanted to pick up the guitar and play, straight away, I soon realised in my naivety that it wasn't as easy as it looked. So I abandoned it, and the acoustic just got damaged and ill treated.

Then when I was 17, I got really into music, buying CDs everytime I could afford them, listening to it all the time and so, I bought an electric, and I've played it ever since. I've fallen in love with the guitar.
I don't feel and I feel great.
