Hi there my name is Charlie K. Dryden I'm a instrumental guitar player from Nottingham in the UK (Famous home of Robin Hood). I started of actually learning to play keyboard and piano before moving to guitar I, probably didn't start playing guitar till I was probably around fourteen or so. When I did eventually start learning to play guitar I was, very quickly hooked. Anything and everything I could learn I did. My main inspiration still to this very day has to be Richie Sambora I don't think I would be the, musician I'm now if it wasn't for Sambora his soulful way of playing, his licks, stance, everything. He really has been since day one the one I have always strived to be like he is my mentor and I will always be, forever thankful to him and his music.

So really that's the way it has been and still is I don't know how to read music or write tabs and I, don't know a lot of theory about the guitar even what I have learnt is by listening and then composing into my own style. Another favorite guitarist of mine is Neal Schon from Journey (You would be surprised how many times I have said his name and people don't have a clue who he is or Journey for that matter). His sense of melody, the vocality of his playing in unlike anyone else in my opinion. He is such a beautiful player and I have learnt so much from Neal and I think I will always continue to.

Apart from that im really just an ordinary guy who loves playing, writing and recording music. Music is a gift to us all and it should be shared as such, it's sometimes not about how fast you can play, how much theory you know, what scales to use it's about the love of what you do.
