Hello! My name is Travis Montgomery. I’m 22 years old and have been playing guitar for 9 years. I’m currently a member of the bands Threat Signal and Nociceptor. I became fascinated with music at about 5 years old. My favorite band was Pink Floyd, and I knew that I wanted to play guitar! It wasn’t until I was about 12-13 years old that I actually picked up a guitar and began practicing. I began learning from one of those “How to Play Guitar For Dummies” books, but my actual obsession with playing guitar started when I discovered tabs!
My main passion in music is metal, but I love pretty much all genres. The brutality and emotion behind metal is what draws me in. It’s like no other genre out there. Also, I’m a pretty big video game nerd. I love video game soundtracks. I listen to soundtracks from games like Final Fantasy, Xenogears, Silent Hill, Star Ocean, Super Mario 64, and Goldeneye 007 on a regular basis.
Some of my favorite bands and influences are: Animals As Leaders, Born of Osiris, Dream Theater, Guthrie Govan, Lamb of God, Meshuggah, Metallica, Nevermore, Nobuo Uematsu, Periphery, Scar Symmetry, Soilwork, Steve Vai, Sybreed, TesseracT, and Veil of Maya.
Other than music I enjoy hanging out and relaxing with my friends and family. I’m hooked on TV shows like Dexter, Supernatural, True Blood, Nip/Tuck, and Sons of Anarchy.
I hope everyone enjoys my guitar lessons on here and can benefit in some way from them!
