ABOUT

Guitar is my main instrument, and I've been playing both acoustic and electric for decades. Have also been known to switch to bass from time to time.

As much as I love playing music, I've also been lucky enough to make a living in the music industry, and have been working as an Engineer/Producer as well as a Remixer/Programmer in NYC for many years. I've worked in many of the top studios, both locally and around the world, on projects ranging from Dance, to Rock, Pop, and Hip-Hop/R&B.

All that is only by way of an introduction (and credibility), since I'm not here looking for engineering gigs, but to find some like-minded people to play music with!

I'm not a professional singer by any means, but I can carry a song and always try to sing it like I mean it.

As an acoustic guitarist, I have leaned toward finger-picking bluesy stuff (think Jorma Kaukonen and his ilk). Still, I am open minded about material and have done acoustic duos performing Beatles to ZZ Top. (OK maybe not ZZ Top acoustic...)

As an electric player, I still like the 'cover band' thing and have been doing it forever as both a lead and rhythm player. Mostly Classic Rock in this area - think Pink Floyd to Stones to Dead to Clapton and many others...

But I also am looking for an original situation where we can write songs, create new music, and hopefully add to the artistic content of the planet;)
