  1. I've been a fan of video games music since I first got my Sega Mega Drive (aka Genesis), at around 8 years old. I'll never forget the first moments I heard the "Streets of Rage" main theme for the first time. Damn... the chills! From "Sonic: The Hedgehog" incredibly made soundtrack to the "Mortal Kombat" series awesome dark-ambient music overall, to my all-time favorite "Comix Zone", they all got me thinking: "Man... I gotta learn to play this." By the time I got the console, I was already learning to play the guitar on my own, and with a little help from older friends and soon started to practice my favorite game's tunes. I mean, my technique was, of course, very bad... but hell, I sure had lots of fun doing it anyway. I'm 26 years old now. I'm a professional musician for two aspiring rock bands. Been writing, recording/producing and playing live shows actively for about 7 years now and I have no doubt that I owe it to my passion for music. But that alone isn't enough if you're not fully commited to the cause, don't have lots of perseverence and are not willing to dedicate a lot of your time learning and knowing your instrument, and are not constantly motivated by your own beliefs and results to work even harder and get further beyond. And, in my case... ... were not simply a young boy fascinated by video games music. If I look back, I can clearly see where it all really started for me CM
