I first got into music as a metal guitar player learning songs through youtube and eventually taking guitar lessons through Kirk Vickers. When I was 16, I would get neoclassical speed exercises and practice them non stop. I practiced hard through my highschool years and eventually practiced Frank Gambale’s and John Petrucci’s guitar workout DVDs’. Then I practiced hard my first year of college, tried out and got accepted to Berklee (my dream school) that summer.
I’m interested in technology & DIY projects. For example, I built acoustic panels for my studio.
In my free time I like to play guitar, admire nature, go on hikes and hangout with friends.
In addition to freelance projects through my name “Weston Guidero” I also have a music catalog through my on production company: “West Audio.”
