ABOUT

I'm a very experienced guitarist looking to put together a high energy blues-rock band (SRV, Eric Gales, Bonamassa style) or join an existing band (preferably GB/wedding $$) that is gigging regularly. I'm extremely versatile and a team player that plays for the song - although I'm very comfortable and confident taking a solo in the spotlight when the time is right. I'm very solid in a variety of styles - classic rock , country, blues, roots and rockabilly, as well as GB and pop - there are not many genres that I don't like. I pride myself in getting the RIGHT tone and feel for whatever song I'm playing, and knowing when to copy a part note for note vs when to improvise.

Influences

I cut my teeth on the Beatles and Stones, in my early years I was hugely influenced by the prog rock bands of the 70's - Yes, Tull, King Crimson, Zappa, etc. In my more "mature" years ( I'm 60 years old now) I'm finding my focus more in the roots, blues and groove music. SRV has been a big influence as well as Danny Gatton, Robben Ford, Scott Henderson and many lesser known blues-rock guitar heros
