My name is Pamela Stashak AKA Cheetah Black and I reside in Huntingtown, MD. I'm a self-taught guitarist who plays 6, 7, and 8 String. I've never had lessons besides using self-help books in the past. Playing guitar is my passion and though I'm not a very technical player, I play by heart--feeling is everything to me. I enjoy listening to all types of music, but the music that drives me mainly to playing guitar is Alternative, Rock and Metal on many levels. My favorite group in the world is Deftones and they have been my favorite since the beginning. They are my Idols. I am a "Deftones Fan for Life" and will forever be inspired by their music. I describe my music as Alternative Rock/Metal. I love heavy guitar riffs with a melodic sound/vocals. It's very hard and edgy--a beautiful sound to my ears. I love it and it's a part of me deep inside that I love to get out. Though I create, write, and sing my own original music with the use of a drum machine and my guitar alone, I consider myself a guitarist first and foremost. I'm pretty much a "1 woman band" but I'm open to joining forces with others to create a band if possible that will consist of an awesome drummer and bassist. But for now, it's just me, myself, and I. I plan to get my original music out to the public to the best of my ability, especially in the form of playing live to the public in many places as possible. I believe that's the best way for anyone to perfect their craft. One more thing I would like to add: Rest in Peace to the Original Bassist of Deftones "Chi Cheng" our Beautiful Angel Above. As your fan, I miss you, I love you, and I honor you always. OneLove!
