Cheers Shred


The first thing that struck me when I heard his lead guitar style was that it sounded like what many people call shred guitar, except there was no distortion!! Also the pieces on his mypage captured me as they was such an obvious cross section of genres and influences in his work.


He said he got 'his sound' when someone stole his amp head and he was forced to play clean for a while and gradually worked on a new sound.


I discovered Roy and John 5 the same year and both slapped me around the chops as they were doing something fresh and exciting.
