It was difficult learning how to play the guitar because I have such small hands. I had to work really hard to get where I'm at, and I still have tons to learn.
I started in 2003 with an electric (fender squier), but I didn't play seriously.
It was only in 2009 that I got my sexy jumbo acoustic (informally named Libra) and I also decided to train my voice to sing.
Before, I could not hit any notes whatsoever. If you still find my singing horrible, I can assure you that before it was even worse.
I continue to play because I enjoy it and I like to freestyle my own songs.
It's an incredible feeling to be able to express oneself with the voice.
I don't intend on performing on stage or making money from my music (not that I'm good enough anyways, lol). Playing music is really just for me and my social entourage.
In terms of influences, I'm really into anything progressive, so I'd like to write songs that don't follow the pop formula. I'm also in love with slap-guitar techniques; percussions give the guitar a very rich quality.
