Band to Join.

ABOUT

I've played lead guitar in several groups, so I'm pretty comfortable in country or blues bands. I've also played bass in bands (that had a better guitar player than I was) and also played dobro and mandolin in a couple bluegrass groups. I've been playing contemporary Christian music in church music ministry for the past 20 years (primarily bass).

Influences

I've always been an Eagles and Jackson Brown fan, but I also like classic country artists like Clint Black, Alan Jackson, Brooks and Dunn, etc. I prefer bluegrass groups like Allison Krauss (Union Station) to older tradition bluegrass. In Christian circles I'm most familiar with Chris Tomlin, Matt Redman, Zach Williams, and the Getty's.

EQUIPMENT

I had to sell all my big amplifiers during my move to Arizona, so I'm down to a small Hartke Kickback that I use for both bass and electric guitar. I have a Custom Tele from the 70's, a PRS hollowbody, a Les Paul copy (I use for mostly slide) and a small body Taylor acoustic. I also have a couple of short scale Fender basses. Oh yes, a lap top resonator, mandolin, and a couple of banjos (that I really don't know how to play).
