When he was 19, he started getting into shred guitar, and wanted to learn how to become a better player. He was so passionate that he actually played guitar for six hours a day! Paul Gilbert is his favorite guitar player, and he tried to take a lot his techniques and incorporate them in his own style. His favorite classical composer is his mother, who taught him everything about harmony and theory. He gives her all the credit for making his base strong.
