Been playing 6-string guitar for about 30 years, and dabble in bass, keys and pedal steel. I also sing either lead or harmonizing backup vocals.

The styles I play in range from psychedelic, surf guitar, alternative/rock, roots reggae, older punk rock, southern rock, alt-country, old-school traditional country, rockabilly/psychobilly and more. Pretty much everything except techno and smooth jazz.
