Born in the 1960s, I mainly play guitar, which I have been playing for decades and is my intended "rock band" instrument. However, I have played piano for longer. I have good speed, accuracy, I'm disciplined and am quick to learn. I play and compose daily, without fail. I compose so much that I tend to not play other band's songs as much as I would like to. However, the result is a style that unlikely to be mistaken for another artist.

NOTE: The originals below are my recent favorites (but I have thousands over decades!) These are what I consider diamonds in the rough. Enjoy.
