I've been here a while, and I think I'll be here a while longer. Might as well introduce myself properly!
Yo! I'm Gamut, or Jared if you prefer. I'm 25, and I live in Ontario, Canada. In the real world, I'm a web developer and computer wizard by trade. But off the clock, my world is music and video games.
I've been a drummer for 12 years, and across them, I've been in five bands. Some rock bands, some metal bands, a folk band.
My love of music also came out in my choice in video games. I got into rhythm games starting with Dance Dance Revolution, which led into playing Guitar Hero and Rock Band competitively. I firmly believe I have these games to thank for turning my brain into a rhythm machine.
Even before I was a drummer, I wanted to play guitar. Naturally, when they made a rhythm game out of guitar, I borrowed my brother's old beginner axe and picked it up immediately. And once I found out that I could put custom songs in the game, well, I found my way here!
Lead guitarist at heart. Only been playing two years, but I'm impressed at how fast Rocksmith is training me - sometimes I do a shreddy bit and realize, "Wow, I just melted faces, didn't I?"
In terms of other video games, I play a lot of DotA, RPGs, hack and slash, and fighters.
In terms of other hobbies, I also enjoy reading, writing, film, and photography!
