They aren’t Shredders, They are Awesome

This pure opinion is in random number. I like them because their play style and their charisma on the stage. So, let’s start from my country first, which is Indonesia. Here they are…

ANDRA RAMADHAN

He is a guitarist of Dewa(legendary band from Indonesia, which previously named Dewa 19) and Andra and The Backbone. This guy is really good when he plays with his PRS guitar. He is playing very calm and clean. When plays as Dewa‘s guitarist, he plays gently. But, in Andra an The Backbone, he plays wildly. But, personally, I prefer he as the guitarist of Andra and The Backbone rather than as Dewa‘s.

DEWA BUDJANA

He is a guitarist of Gigi, Trisum and also has a solo project. I’m impressed with his plays since the first of his solo concert, which is just a year ago. Denis is the boy who invited me to watch Budjana’s concert. Since that concert, I began to listen his music, especially his solo project and Trisum. And, I realize that he is one of the best jazz guitarist in Indonesia. Even though he is very calm when performing, but not with his fingers. His fingers move fast but sure according to the songs. In Indonesia, he is very famous with his blue Parker guitar.

Nah, those two guitarists are my favorite guitarists in Indonesia. Below is my other favorite guitarists that came from outside Indonesia. Here they are…

KURT COBAIN

Okay, he is my hero. He is a guitarist, a vocalist, and a frontman of a band called Nirvana. I like his style, his guitar, his Nirvana, and his left hand. If you read my previous post about 10 facts, I mentioned him as my hero because he is lefties. But, not only that, I adore him in many things. Some says that his guitars skills are bad, but I think they are just envy to him. He has a very very simple way to play guitar. I also like his songs. He is very charismatic in stage, even though he often to wore weird dress when performing. And another unique thing is his guitar. I like his guitar. His guitar is a combination between Fender Jaguar and Fender Mustang. That’s why the guitar’s name is Fender Jagstang.

JAMES ROOT

He is the guitarist of Slipknot and Stone Sour. I like his style when he perform on the stage, especially when perform with Slipknot. I always like his mask, rather than the others in Slipknot. He is physically looks like a devil that play a guitar. And he has number 4 as the Slipknot number. His guitar is a unique guitar. I think only he that plays metal using Fender Telecaster. Before him, there isn’t any guitarist who play metal using Fender Telecaster. Only he can do it, and the result is great. Just listen to a brand new Slipknot’s album, and feel the sound of his guitar.

JOE SATRIANI

I don’t have anything to said, do I? He is the master, I think. Just listen to his albums, and you will understand why he impressed me, even impressed anyone who play guitar.

10 Things That You didn’t Know About Me

# Each blogger must post these rules.
# Each blogger starts with ten random facts/habits about themselves.
# Bloggers that are tagged need to write on their own blog about their ten things and post these rules. At the end of your blog, you need to choose ten people to get tagged and list their names.

# Don’t forget to leave them a comment telling them they’ve been tagged and to read your blog

 

————————————————————————————

 

I don’t know what kind of game is this. At first, I’m tagged by Dilla. Then, I think it is interesting, while I don’t have anythings to do. At least for now. So, I decided to join this game. For your information, these ten facts maybe outside of my expectation and I also surprise that I have facts like those. I hope you don’t. Hehehe..

 

#1. I really wants to be a lefties.

I don’t know what happens to me, but I’m sure that I really wants to be a left handed. I think it is great to be a lefties. Maybe I’ve got inspired by my hero whose are lefties too. Kurt Cobain. He is a great artist , and he is lefties. At elementary school, I ever try a week to use only my left hand. The result? I think I’ve been dying to write, to eat, and doing many things with my left hand. But, I think I’m far to be a AMBIDEXTERITY, which is a person who can use their both hands perfectly. Hehe… Maybe that’s will happen, if I still continue to use my left hand.  

 

#2. I was a great nail biter.

Yes, but I stopped two years ago when I’m found all of my fingers bleeding badly. This ridiculous ‘hobby’ began when I was in 3rd grade of elementary school(ES). I remember why I really likes to bite my nails. Those are when I got a nail check in ES, but my nails are very long. So, rather than scold by my teacher, i prefer to bite my nails. Hehehe.. I think that was a stupid thought.

 

#3. Black is my favorite color.

Black represents elegant, mysterious, cool, and dark. I love wearing black things, even though I rarely wear blackout, which is from my hair to heel is black. I love black color when it comes a details. Like, I love black watches, black cars, black shoes, and black hair. I ever try to paint my room into with a black color, but my parents forbid me to do it. So, I think, when I’m a father, I will have some room that covered with black color.

 

#4. A vampire??

Hehehe.. It is not like you’ve imagine. I just like to drink snake’s blood with my father. He said that is is good for my body. So, I’m just a son who obeyed his father. But, I enjoyed this suggestion. Hehehe..

 

#5. I want to meet Kurt Cobain.

Yeah that is right. Although I know that is impossible, I still wants to meet him and tell him how great he was. But, maybe I could meet him when it is a time. 

 

#6. I was like to skateboarding.

Yes, and it was. I skate from the beginning of my first year in junior-high. I don’t know why I like this game, but this game looks very awesome to me. Caused by some reasons, I stop plays when in my last year in high school. Until now, I still loves to watch any skateboarding event, competition, and many more. My hero in this game is Rodney Mullen. I like Danny Way’s quotation about skateboarding. Here it is: “Skateboarding is not a sport. It is a lifestyle. When you stop skateboarding, you stop life!”

 

#7. I prefer reading than watching.

It is true that I prefer reading than watching. But, it’s just occurred when it comes to reading a novel. From all of the novel based movie, I often preferred the novel version. I don’t know. When I’m reading a novel, my imagination about what happen in novel is limitless. But, when it comes to the movie, they just take all of my imagination and force me to use their imagination.

 

#8. I am a pedestrian.

I prefer to use my foot rather than use my car. Yes it is true. But that just for a short distance trip. Hehehe.. When I’m in my first year of University, I often walk from my housing into the campus with my friends. I think it is healthy, rather than to use public transportation. If I don’t bring a car to campus, and there is none of my friend that I can’t go with, so i prefer to walk to my housing. 

 

#9. I love my third eye.

My third eye is my cameras. Right now, I have three cameras, which are Lumix LX3, D300, and FM 10. But I think I neglected that last one. Hehe.. I love using them to capture every moment, but I prefer to capture the beauty of the earth. Like the shape of the mountain, the shine of sun when it set, the warmth of the stars, the singing sea, the bold of the cloud, and many more.

 

#10. I’m often to get mad.

Maybe some of you say that I’m quite, calm, and something. But, it is contrary with this facts. Yes, I am often to get mad. But, when I am mad, I always try to shut it down. So, it is often to see me missing or disappear suddenly. For me, disappear from others is my way to shut down my emotion and my anger. Hehehe…

 

Yeah, that’s not all of my facts actually. There are lot of funny facts if you wants to know. Hehehe… So, I think Reno, Bayu, Alung, Etgar, Rafdy, Anin, Arini, Cacuy, Nissa, and Kenny must be prepare for another of this game.

So, let’s get it on!
