“Ahh, that sweet sweet sound of roaring chords, crunchy riffs and catchy licks.
How does that not put a smile on your face?”
Although classically trained, as a teenager Skralan became hooked on the bands that ruled LA’s Sunset Strip and is still smitten to this day.
Often staying late after jazz class to ask the guitar teacher about the techniques used in screaming solo’s, or how to tackle that really fast bit in such and such song.
Skralan really looked up to the greats like: Whitesnake, Kiss, Ratt, Poison, Mötley Crüe, Aerosmith, Van Halen and Guns ‘n’ Roses! Those bands were, and still are, some of the motivators for Skralan to pick up his guitar each day.
Skralan also loves the 80’s best and brightest female offerings such as: Lita Ford, Vixen, Joan Jett and Lee Aaron, for their powerful voices and all-out amazing guitar chops. It isn’t all about men with long hair in glittery spandex.
