ABOUT

Solid intermediate guitar player. I’d call myself advanced when practiced but I’m older and life gets in the way. I simply love and want to play live music with any number of people and instruments. Don't care if you blow on a balloon - if it makes music, it all good. I’ve handled keyboards and other stringed instruments in the past but need to bone up. I have experience live with audiences but it was a long time ago so for now I am simply looking for folks to play with. My voice is shot and would never make a dime for me anyway so I no longer strive for perfection and no longer take it all so seriously. Just wanna have fun and it can go wherever it goes.
A fellow filmed a bit of first run-through thru noodling My Back Pages - search Sebago Canoe Club 2019 on YourTube. Excuse the vocals - never said I could sing.

Influences

Happiest in the '60's. A bunch before and after. Rock, Blues, R&B, Motown, Chess, Stax, Atlantic, folk, vintage country and a few jazz/theater standards demo'd here noodling on the couch.

Forget hiphop, rap, modern country and pop - any open mindedness evaporates when it hurts my brain.

EQUIPMENT

Some.
Not much of a pedal pusher but I built a rack recently - just for tone but I'll admit a crush on Leslie.
