ABOUT

Guitarist for hire with backing vocal ability (some lead for the right songs) Not looking to play more than a couple of times a month. Enjoy free-jamming just as much as gigging, as long as it's a reasonable schedule. I learn quickly, and work well with a pre-designed set-list. I love playing and writing, and will continue to do both for as long as I am able.

Influences

Mainly progressive rock bands like Rush, Yes, and Dream Theater; but like most musicians, I draw inspiration from many different wells. My style comes off as a little bluesy, a little technical, and a little funky. I love Joe Satriani, Jeff Beck, and Zakk Wylde.

Samick SG copy, Ibanez RG570, Epiphone SG Prophecy, Epiphone classical, Washburn Acoustic,Aria ProII ZZ standard, Marshall JMD 2X12 100watt tube monster, various effects, a cheap mandolin, a cheap bass guitar, fostex 8 track digital recorder, Boss Dr 770 drum machine, Casio 550 keyboard through an Alesis Multiverb unit, a couple of decent mics, and some small percussion including shakers, bongos, and a few other little things.
