Biography

Well I'm xavoblues, and music has been my passion since I can remember. I started playing guitar when I was 14, like 29 years ago!! God it's been a long time, but at that time I didn't know anything about music theory or stuff like that, I just played some Black Sabbath, Deep Purple and Zeppelin riffs just like everybody else.
Anyway, I fell in love with the guitar and started listening and playing anything I could, I love everything about the instrument so all the songs I write start out in a guitar, always.
I have played in some bands over the years and right now I'm starting a new project, I hope I can talk about this later, when everything gets into place.
Although my favorite genres have always been rock and blues I'm very open minded to all kinds of music, my listening playlists are so varied that I don't think anyone could stand hearing them with me.
So if you get to listen to my iTunes library you'll hear a wide range of music from Metal to classic rock, classical, flamenco, blues, jazz, pop, latin (a lot of latin music), and a very large etc. As you can see, anything goes, the only thing that almost everything I like have in common is the use of the guitar. Of course, my all time heroes are Randy Rhoads, Jimi Hendrix, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Eric Clapton, B.B. King, Paco de Lucia, Santana, Steve Vai, Eric Johnson, Eddie Van Halen, Django Reindhartd, Al Di Meola, Wes Montgomery, Zakk Wylde, Heitor Villalobos, Tom Morello and so on.

I have written a lot of music and I have some examples of them here, most of them are still in demo mode, but I will have them recorded prefesionally pretty soon.
