    Favorite Genres:
    My technique consists of both finger style and playing with a Pick. I like playing whatever I can be passionate about. If it's something I just can't get a feeling for then I don't play it. If I had to use the word " Genre " I'd say Punk Rock, Hard Rock, Rock N Roll, Reggae, pop punk and whatever else that is good music.

    I play Both bass and guitar but I'm truly a bassist. I play both finger and pick bass as I love playing either way both the same. My Favorite band/s are Guns N' Roses, sublime and The Descendents and the Replacements among all others. Original old school Punk Rock is my favorite kind of music as I also love Bands such as the clash, the Ramones, Rancid, ALL, The Minutemen and others . I apreciate and respect all music but that doesn't mean I like all music. I only play and listen to music I can relate too or that I am passionate for. I love everything to do with the 1990's as I think it was one of histories greatest and best decades. It was the last of blue collar and the American way in the USA. Sports, music, fashion ,politics and business, cartoons, pop culture, food and soda were all awesome in the 90's. I hate corporate America and this country needs to get back to its roots which is small business and caring for the American people.
