ABOUT

My name's Freddy Renteria. You can find me on sound cloud and you tube under that name. I'm alvathecat (at) geem ail dot comm. Get it? anyway, I haven't jammed with anyone in a really long time. Frankly, I can't stand being around most people but I have my limitations so I need one or maybe two people to work with. A small, low-energy acoustic project where we do all of those old standards, show numbers, ballads, and maybe sometimes some originals would be ideal along with whatever ideas you have. Also, I don't drive, I don't have a job and I'm always broke. Basically, I suck at life. You should probably know that. I can generally make it to wherever I need to go, though. This basement is always available for jamming but I'd rather not use amps, if you don't mind. Just our acoustic guitars or whatever. No one needs to know what we're doing here.

EQUIPMENT

Low-end stuff: a 12 string acoustic guitar, a 6 string acoustic guitar, a sound hole pick-up, a fiddle, and a couple of harmonicas for now. I record everything on an outdated version of Garageband on my outdated laptop using an interface thingy. I've got a real dog and pony show here. I can get my hands on some gear if and when I/we get my/our shit together.
