Rockin' out with Christopher Scali

Name: Christopher Scali
Craft: Playing guitar



When did you start playing guitar?
I started playing the guitar when I was in 8th grade. My parents bought me this $100 dollar guitar, and I started teaching myself the basic chords and scales.

How did you get interested in performing?
The first show I ever played in was an Open Mic night at my high school. I played the song "The Best of Me" from the Starting Line, and the whole crowd started to clap and sing along with me. It was such a rush!

Which artist has influenced you the most?
MAE has to be one of my favorite bands of all time. Their lyrics are simply amazing and inspiring.

What is your favorite genre of music to perform?
My favorite music to perform has to be Christian rock and alternative rock. These two types of genres are so much fun to play, and the crowd can get pumped up very easily. When I was in a band in high school, the crowd would sing along. It is almost they are a part of your band.
