pics coming soon...
Joined the band: November 2013
My musical interests started in the mid-90's by playing keyboards. I began listening to rock & metal music in high school and became interested in guitars.
I started playing electric guitar in 2002. I am a self-taught guitarist. After a couple of years I noticed the lack of musical science & music theory in myself,
so I began to learn music theory professionally from one of the most prominent jazz fusion players in Iran. Since then I worked as the lead guitarist in two
metal bands & also worked on my solo album. I have participated in several guitar competitions. I began teaching guitar & music theory in 2008.
The songs I compose are full of technical & melodic riffs. I write the riffs in my mind first & then bring them on the guitar. I have experienced numerous
good & bad feelings throughout my life & I want to use my songs to show how I feel.
Solos wise whatever comes to my head as I am listening to the rhythm with just one rule in the back of my mind; apply music theory in order to make everything
complicated & strange so that no one can predict what will happen next!
