**I've been dealing with a hearing loss issue for the last few years, so the songs here may be mixed way too loud. Adjust volume accordingly**Sound is best through headphones, I think**
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). Available just about anytime, with reasonable notice. Band situation, online collaboration, or just jam and see where it goes- I'm easy.
Mainly rhythm guitar, can manage some simple Gilmour-style leads/Trower-type fills- I'm not a shredder by any stretch of the imagination, lean more to a stripped-down, melodic style of lead; my interest lately has been in working out twin lead harmony lines. Some bass/percussion ability (to be clear, all the drums/percussion on these songs are loops from various sources). Crude originals included so you can kind of see where I am and where I'd like to go (all input welcome- see notes for each). My partial song list for covers (aside from the obvious standards)-
Led Zeppelin- Thank You, What Is And What Should Never Be, Since I've Been Loving You, Immigrant Song, Out On The Tiles, The Rain Song, No Quarter, Dancing Days, The Rover, Kashmir
Pink Floyd- Breathe/Time/Breathe Reprise, Us And Them, Shine On You Crazy Diamond, Have A Cigar, Pigs (Three Different Ones), Run Like Hell, Young Lust, Comfortably Numb, Learning To Fly, One Slip
Sabbath- Planet Caravan, Supernaut, A National Acrobat, Symptom Of The Universe (especially the outro)
BOC- Cities On Flame, Flaming Telepaths/Astronomy, Dominance and Submission, In Thee, ETI, I Love The Night, After Dark, Burnin' For You
Odds and others- Sultans Of Swing (Dire Straits), Too Rolling Stoned, Bridge of Sighs (Robin Trower), Funk 49 (Joe Walsh- James Gang), Sweet Jane (Mott The Hoople version), Blue Jean Blues, Rough Boy (ZZ Top), Ready For Love, Burnin' Sky (Bad Co), Do You Feel Like We Do (Frampton), Too Hot To Handle, Lights Out (UFO), Rock The Nation, Rock Candy, Paper Money (Montrose), Hair Of The Dog, Beggar's Day/Rose In The Heather (Nazareth), I Shot The Sheriff (Clapton), Blue On Black (Kenny Wayne Shepherd), Radar Love (Golden Earring)
(Some of these are easy quickies, some would be projects- I won't claim to know all these songs note-for-note and/or all the way through, but I can say I know them well enough to work on and get right and complete reasonably quickly.)

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.
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.

Strange little dream I had...or still am having, maybe.
Hello There! Genre: Rock
Helloooooo...!!! "Yeah, we don't want to do anything to scare your children, that's the last thing we want to do; we don't want to scare anybody."
Abandoned Genre: Rock
A ghost story, whispered from the old shed in my backyard.
Fiat Lux (WYSIWYG)
Fiat Lux (WYSIWYG) Genre: Other
"Let there be light"- I'm not a religious person by any means (WYSIWYG), but I do like the imagery of the phrase; "Fiat Lux" from the second section of the novel "A Canticle For Liebowitz."
Mercedes Street (The Oubliette)
Mercedes Street (The Oubliette) Genre: Rock
The grinding despair of poverty, a bitter pit for the forgotten. "Mercedes Street" from a grim locale in Stephen King's "11/22/63"
Higher Ground Genre: Other
Not the Stevie Wonder song; just me running that Gmaj7 into the ground.
ants (NSFW) Genre: Rock
Need an excuse for a drum solo? (Couldn't think of a better title right off...and I couldn't resist that little NSFW thing at the end, sorry- I try not to take myself too seriously)
Chance Of A Ghost
Chance Of A Ghost Genre: Other
Better than no chance at all...
Gunslinger (The Clearing At The End Of The Path)
Gunslinger (The Clearing At The End Of The Path) Genre: Rock
I obviously read way too much Stephen King. This one's a little messy in places, but the idea is there, I guess.

Everyone's had one, right?
