#Petruccimas Day 1: Never Enough (with an added solo at the end 🤣) One fateful night, while drinking wine with some friends, this track streamed its way through the speakers. Mind you, I hadn’t listened to this album in ages. The moment I heard this riff, I rush of memories hit me, and I was reminded just how much I love Dream Theater and @jpetimages. Shortly afterward, I listened to their entire discography from start-to-finsh, and it was teh seks.⠀
It’s funny how much can change in a year. A year ago, I caught a fave band of mine opening for another band at The Troubadour, and I sort of meekly asked the lead guitar player what he did when he wasn’t playing gigs, and he told me he taught Guitar. Within a week we set up lessons, and ive grown so much from there. It’s been a full year since that conversation, and where I was once only adequate at playing chords, I can honestly say I’m not a bad guitar player anymore! What started as one modeling amp turned into a 60w Tube amp, and now, a cleaned up pedalboard to boot. For me, playing guitar was like looking through a bedroom window through a coffee straw. I can say now I feel like I’m looking through it with a fast food cup straw now! (Working my way up to boba straw soon!) Huge shoutout to @austinhayman for being one of the most patient, intuitive teachers I’ve ever had the good fortune of learning from. And big shoutouts to @benjamingrey and @marcsallis for providing invaluable gear insight, and for constantly inspiring me to keep growing, and to continue pursuing my art. If you want to see these fine dudes in action, @dearboyofficial is HEADLINING @thetroubadour 1/31 and this Sunday @thesaintjamessociety will have a @blankcityrecords night @theechola! Much love y’all, and thank you Alabama!
