I am a very serious guitarist that loves playing Blues, Fusion, Neo Classical Metal, 80's style Metal, Thrash, and Classic Rock ( 60's, 70's, 80's ).I've toured the U.S. / Canada, taught guitar / music theory for more than 21 years, played for 34 years, have no ego or substance abuse issues and have a professional attitude about music / life. . I write original music, love collaborating with others for input / output and if I do covers, I do them note for note no matter how simple or difficult those songs are written.
