I'd like to say that my interests are pretty broad, but here is a list of areas in which I devote my attention. Just follow the links to find out more.

Music

Playing guitar

Like most people, I enjoy listening to music (trance, alternative, and classical in particular). At one point I would be producing music digitally using sound editing software such as fruityLoops and loop-playback software such as Acid Pro, which was fun until the hobby became exhaustively time consuming. Above all else though, I enjoy playing music on my guitar!

I'm a self-taught guitar player, so I'm embarrassed to say that I don't know how to read music notes. Instead, I learn to play songs reading tablature (the quick and dirty way of playing the guitar). I started playing back in 2006, and I've been playing casually ever since.

List of some songs I've learned to play:

  • Coldplay - The Scientist
  • Coldplay - Fix you
  • Gary Jules - Mad World
  • Glen Hansard - Falling Slowly
  • Gustavo Santaolalla - The Wings
  • Greenday - Good Riddance
  • Greenday - Wake Me Up When September Ends
  • Jimmy Eat World - Hear You Me
  • Johnny Cash - Hurt
  • Kansas - Dust in the Wind
  • Lifehouse - You and Me
  • Radiohead - Bulletproof
  • Radiohead - Fake Plastic Trees
  • Oasis - Wonderwall
  • Prozac Ltd - Alone in my Prison
