New York Rock Guitarist 1
Born in NJ, this New York Rock Guitarist started his music career on the drums and became a very popular and powerful drummer in the tri state region of Nj, NY, and Pa playing in many local club bands throughout the region. He picked up the guitar one day just to see what it was like and never looked back. He took lessons in Port Jervis, NY from a few teachers but it wasn't until he met local guitar instructor Lenny Hayden.
Through the years he and Lenny became close friends and this New York Rock Guitarist's path in music starting developing. Starting with blues and classic rock style lessons, he progressed into many rock bands that guitarists start to learn but eventually he found Dream Theater after seeing a video on MTV which would change the way he approached music. His attention switched into a world of progressive hard rock styles of guitar that others shy away from. Learning many different techniques from the guitarists of the day such as Richie Kotzen, Paul Gilbert, Joe Satriani, Steve Vai, and John Petrucci helped develop a style that carries him to this day.
