ABOUT

I'm a chamelon, I change my playing to fit almost any situation. I'm proficient in pretty much all areas of guitar playing: Chord-melody, comping, single note soloing, and other with the exception of smooth harp harmonics and 8 finger tapping but those are on the burner.

I do all my own repair work and modding and can manage most equipment
I am familiar with studio work and recording techniques.
