I'm an excellent rhythm guitarist with some great lead licks to match. The equipment I have allows me to do some pretty cool stuff. For example, both guitars have dual outputs. I am able to plug into two different amps, one for electric, and one for acoustic. This doubles the sound of my rhythms and also allows me to run loops on one amp while doing leads over the second. I am more about doing originals than cover music. Under "Influences" it defines the type of music I try to emulate.
Right now, I'm playing local bars during open mic nights. Playing songs from Neil Young, Greg Lake, Pink Floyd, Fleetwood Mac and originals. My vocals have improved considerably as has my acoustic playing. I then practice electric at home. Mainly running loops on the acoustic side, and doing leads on the electric.
If you listen to Sirius/XM JamOn Channel, there I am. I love String Cheese Incident, Moe., Umphrey's McGee and other jam bands. I'm also into modern progressive rock from the likes of Porcupine Tree, Spock's Beard, Riverside, Marillion and many others. I also have experience in contemporary Christian rock bands with influences from Third Day and Jars of Clay.
Very motivated to do originals more than covers. I have a few songs I've written with lyrics and instrumental.
