When I started to play guitar, I liked Rock a lot!
And I have accumulated various experiences,
I play various kind of music now.
Now I’m into country music, bluegrass as a guitarist.
There are sooooooooo many great country guitar players like…
Scotty Anderson, Brent Mason, Merle Travis, Chet Atkins, etc…
And as a music listener, I like chillstep, synthwave, melodic dubstep now.
Tbh, I don’t care about music genres.
I play and listen to music whatever I like.
I will post about them, too.
Now I’m making my debut EP.
I’m stoked because some great musicians I respect join it.
Hope I can release it in 2022.
All right, thank you for reading until here.
See you in next blog.
