I'm kind of a weird one. I don't want to play in any specific genre. Was kind of disappointed it made me only pick four. I like it all just so long as it sounds good. I've jammed with banjo players by a camp fire unplugged, and I've jammed with rappers at full volume. I have a different attitude on all my instruments, and I don't want to be pigeon holed into a single specific roll, for a single genre band. I'd like to find other musicians like me who are singer/multi-instrumentalists who are willing to do both originals and covers in multiple genres.

Life, death, love, hate, happiness, anger. I'm inspired and influenced by my surroundings, not that band I heard on the radio. Don't really want to sound like anybody in particular, so much as I want to reflect my feelings in music, and it isn't always pretty, sometimes it's harsh, sometimes it's depressing, but sometimes it's beautiful and happy. I'd like to portray the way the world feels, in note form.

Acoustic guitar, electric bass, banjo, harmonica key of C, pseudo sax key of G, bongos, congas, djembe natural wood carved with goat skin not Remo, doumeks low and high, cabassa, tambourine, shakers, kazoo, echo pedal, some small amps, not a technical talker, sorry if you wanted model numbers and stuff, that stuff never really meant anything to me, who has every model of every piece of equipment memorized anyways? I've got other recording equipment and mics and stands and stuff. Enough for me to be satisfied with.
