Instrumental Heaviness With An Emphasis On Composition

I`ve been playing for nearly 20 years, and I`ve always emulated guitarists like Jimi Hendrix, Gary Moore, people like that. As far as instrumental goes, when you can`t sing yourself, you tend to write without a vocal part in mind. If you could add vocals to it, that would be one thing, but I decided that I would like the guitar to shine through on what I was doing. So I decided to make the project instrumental.
