I've been playing on and off for about 12 years. Only started to get serious about it last year fall, really decided to improve as a rhythm guitarist. I like thrashy sounding stuff.
Lately, I've been trying to write songs, trying to write about 10 and then tighten up my sound, invest in some equipment, write lyrics and start jamming with a bassist and a drummer.
Just for fun here is a video of my practicing.
