ABOUT

**I've been dealing with a hearing loss issue for the last few years, so the songs here may be mixed too loud. Adjust volume accordingly. Sound is best through headphones, I think** The only song mastered here is "Presque Vu" (by "pseudoambient" at Kompoz); the rest are my amateur rough mixes. All songs written and performed by me, with exceptions in notes. (All drums/percussion are clips/samples, unless otherwise specified)

Classic rock, Floyd, Zeppelin, Sabbath, BOC, etc; also originals. Cell 228-383-5992 (prefer text for first contact, or leave voice-mail message if no answer).

12/01/18- Committed to the Powers-Hawkins Band as rhythm guitarist. This is going to be full-time for me, but anyone who might be interested in helping me with my originals (or think I could contribute to theirs) is still welcome to contact me, on the strict understanding that the PHB is now my absolute Number One priority, and anything else could only be as time aside from that might permit.

Influences

David Gilmour (definitely my #1), Mark Knopfler, Steve Morse, Buck Dharma, Robin Trower, Alex Lifeson, Billy Gibbons, Nancy Wilson

Lately I've been getting into more basic blues stuff, Warren Haynes and big time into Joe Bonamassa, though I'll never be able to play like those guys. (See also "David Gerald" in Michigan, on my Music List, and his video versions of "The Thrill Is Gone" and "I'll Play The Blues For You" for the sort of thing I mean)

EQUIPMENT

Ibanez RG series, 80's Fender Strat, cheapo Jay Turser Les Paul copy (used for alternate tunings- e.g., Zeppelin's "The Rain Song" and my "Dream Coda"), Boss GT-10, old Behringer V-Amp (which I mix in tandem stereo with the GT10 to thicken the sound, esp. for clean sounds), Boss BR1600 16-track digital recorder. Odds and ends effects (including Rocktron Banshee talkbox). 20W Raven practice amp + 40W Fender Champ= 60 watts sort-of stereo. Running Reaper and CakeWalk Guitar Tracks Pro 3 on a new laptop my wife just bought for me. Kind of equipment poor for live sound, but ok for basic recording purposes.
