ABOUT

My name is Gary, I have played in blues, rock and latin jazz bands, as well as an electronic based band. I'm ultimately looking to play some original funk, jazz fusion with some electronica, female vocals. I can also get into some heavy blues instrumental groves. I am interested in working with a few talented musicians in a group setting and on a regular weekly basis. Also interested in studio work and soundtracks.


I can play clean guitar, or I may use a 2 to 3 pedal system when I perform. Usually a straight guitar sound with effects in one channel, while running the guitar synth through another channel within a mixing board for recording, or a two amp system for live performances. I can blend the guitar and synth, or fade in and out between the two. I also have looping capabilities if I want to really get a full sound going. I tend to rehearse daily.
