I am not sure if the title of this page is appropriate. Calling myself a musician is like calling HTML a programming language! Anyway, I have been playing guitar since past 12 years. Although terribly out of touch at the moment, it's still significantly more than a hobby to me. These days since programming has taken a front seat, I only get time to practice at home and don't play with any bands or (home) record original stuff as I used to do when I was in college. I have a few videos uploaded to youtube though. Let me know if you like them :-)

My gear consists of an Ibanez RG350EX electric guitar, a Marshall 30dfx Combo Amplifier, MXR ZW-44 Distortion pedal, Jim Dunlop Crybaby and a Walden D350CE acoustic guitar. I also own a "Hobner" acoustic guitar (cheap imitation of Höfner with a hard b) that some how, mysteriously sounds beautiful inspite of it's broken body.

As a listener, I enjoy classic rock, blues and metal while being open to other types of good and honest music, irrespective of genre and language. Some of my favourite guitar players are Joe Satriani, Paul Gilbert, Andy Timmons and Warren Mendonsa (Blackstratblues/Zero).
