Myself, getting acquainted with an 8-string guitar!

Biography




My name is Doug Maheux, and I am a first-year student at the University of Ottawa. I am currently studying Commerce, with a specialization in accounting. I began playing the guitar at the age of 8, and guitars have been an interest of mine ever since. My favourite genre of music is heavy metal, but I enjoy any music involving guitar! Recently, I have been working on composing original music and attempting to fuse hip-hop with heavy metal influences to create a unique sound.
