Playing the guitar and write songs

Musical background
At the age of 8 I began taking piano lessons. After 5 years I got sick of it and gave it up. Around the age of 14 I started taking guitar lessons and since then never stopped it. At the very beginning I played in a few bands at my music school but soon me and a few friends founded an own band and wrote own songs. From 2003 until 2005 I played the rhythm guitar in the local band "The Light Muffins". For everything what came after that, please read the biography ;-).
