Early career

Michael Paget ESP LTD MP600 Michael Paget Signature Series Electric Guitar

He was about 17 years old when he got his first guitar—a 3/4 size classical guitar. He couldn't even tune the guitar for a month. His cousin came to his house and helped him tune the guitar. Then he started to learn some chords from the little booklet that came with the guitar. The first song he ever learned on guitar was "Polly" by Nirvana, off the band's 1991 album Nevermind. He used to play drums when he studied music at Bridgend College, where he met the members who would form Jeff Killed John, later to be known as Bullet For My Valentine.
