ABOUT

I am starting again after a dormant period due to life challenges, but at almost 50 yrs old, I finally know this is a passion (and not just a hobby).

I'm open to ideas and some different styles; I enjoy latin, classical, and bluegrass sounds as well as music created by my influences. My go-to music is mainly hard rock - for guitar, I like the sounds you'd get from scales like the phrygian mode.

I have the basics on drums, and I am an absolute beginner on bass, but I am willing to work with someone else, or others, who have a vision.

I am starting accordion because, well, I love music, and talk about expanding your range...!

If anyone is an advanced beginner like me and would like to jam or learn to play in sync together, contact me.

I plan on upgrading in December to be able to send/receive messages.

Influences

My influences are all over the place, and from so many different eras and rock sub-genres. I'll just put my hard rock influences into focus:

Ritchie Blackmore (Deep Purple, Rainbow);
Donald Roeser (Blue Oyster Cult);
Frank Infante (Blondie);
Alice in Chains;
Alex Lifeson (of Rush) and Vivian Campbell, both for their incredible range and knowledge of guitar music.

Current bands I like, local to Pittsburgh: The Lopez, Greywalker, Solarbun, Daily Grind (all these bands fu*king rock!)
Other from last decade: The Accident Experiment, Mastodon (!!!), Silversun Pickups, Foals (whose most recent album is very good!), Metallica of course, etc.
