ABOUT

Time for an update.

Older guitar player looking for like minded classic rockers and metal heads to jam along with and see where it goes from there. Having fun is the idea so I’m not looking to make a lifestyle change. I am more comfortable playing rhythm mostly, but I can butcher a song like no other with my interpretation of lead if you really want me to, so you have been duly warned.

I'm an easy-going guy with no dependencies, drama, or any delusions of being a rock star. Chemistry is key, but chemicals are not so if you are still messing with it then I’m not interested. However, I’m not shy of a beer or two so there is some wiggle room. Kids are in college now which means weeknight practice sessions are now an option.

Hopefully this looks interesting to someone and if that’s you then please drop me a note. adoucet at hot mail dot com - Be sure to put the hot mail words together. ;-)

Influences

I used to be in a band back in the 80’s when I was in the military stationed in Germany, so my current practice routine is to jam along a rotating list of 10-15 songs that I used to play in those days. We like to rock and we like it loud, the harder the better so in no specific order here are some of the bands that I practice the most to as of late - Priest, Maiden, Scorpions, Crue, Ratt, Dio, AC/DC, Accept, Dokken/Lynch (Mob), Kiss, The Cult, Metallica, Megadeth and many others that have not been practiced as frequently so rusty may be an applicable term for my remembrance of them.

I’m kind of getting in a rut playing the same tunes all the time so why don’t give me a shout and help me change it up a bit. I’m not shy of learning new stuff (rock) and with the proper motivation of encouraging peers I usually catch on very quickly.

EQUIPMENT

Because of my military background and constantly moving around I’ve become a longtime fan of older Carvin equipment. I’ve had plenty of other equipment (Gibson, Fender, Kramer, Electra, Marshall, Tube Works and Laney) over the years and I’ve come full circle as in starting with pedals and a combo amp to a full half stack rack system back to the combo amp and pedal setup. Easier to move around again.
