He will stop at nothing to catch your attention. Jet Bycraft Jet began his musical career by playing the drums from the age of nine to the age of eleven. Jet then started taking guitar lessons at the age of eleven and quickly discovered that playing Twinkle Twinkle Little Star and Mary Had A Little Lamb were boring songs and the guitar lessons were totally not what he expected, so he quit the lessons because Jet wanted to play rock music. At the age of seventeen, Jet attended a Ted Nugent concert at Winterland, San Francisco, which deeply inspired him to learn how to play the guitar. Jet remembers seeing Ted Nugent playing the guitar, and he said to himself, "I can do that!" Jet immediately traded his beat-up stereo for an old broken down Kent electric guitar and Teisco amplifier, both of which he had repaired at once. Jet taught himself to play the guitar by practicing his guitar for eighteen hours a day, and within two years, jaws were dropping when Jet played his guitar for live audiences. Jet began playing with different musicians and various bands in the San Francisco Bay Area in 1978. By the age of twenty-one, Jet moved to Lake Tahoe and began performing in cover bands in Kings Beach. Jet then returned to the San Francisco Bay Area, where he joined an all-original band named Spectre.
