Currently, He is taking drum lessons and teaching himself finger style guitar. He used to not have tabs for the music that he played in his videos. He just listens and picks them up directly from the sound source in videos available on the Internet.
However, recently, he has started playing with original tabs whenever they are available to him by courtesy of the authors. His old guitar is custom made by Selma to fit his body size, and on it, Thomas Leeb wrote, "Keep on grooving to my friend."
As of Jan. 1st, 2009 Lakewood acts as sponsor for his guitar officially. He is very grateful to those prominent guitarists who have had a great influence on my guitar playing. He’ll continue to study them and learn more about interpretation of music and various playing techniques. His daily practice routine lasts for one to two hours when school is open, but he play up to three hours a day during the school breaks. It usually takes me two to three days to practice and videotape a new piece but sometimes up to a week for more difficult ones.
Last, but certainly not least, he can't thank Ulli Bogershausen enough for being my musical inspiration.
