Rock n' Rolla


Red Hot Chili Pepper's guitarist John Frusciante

I recently started playing guitar and I think it’s safe to say that I’m falling in love with it. It’s a lot of fun on a different creative level that I haven’t really experienced before. I’m still trying to learn the basics but I feel as though music in general has been opened up to me– there doesn’t seem to be a limit or roof you can hit but just open space as far as skill and innovation go. I find myself looking at music differently and appreciating the talent and genius that goes into a song (most).

I just wrote about how I always wanted to be a professional stuntman. I think a recent dream is to be a rockstar. I don’t think there could be any better feeling in the world than to be on stage rocking out with thousands of people listening to every note you play. When that many people like your music, they’re essentially agreeing with what you think– they agree with the notes you decide to play in the order that you arrange them. Call me an egomaniac or whatever but to have that many people agree with you and enjoy what you’re doing all at once must be a pretty amazing feeling.

I should never be a rock star. I’m no where near humble enough to not let it all go to my head. But as long as I breath I’ll always be rockin’ out with my air guitar in the shower.

Rock on,

Thomas J.
