SEEKINGVocalist, Lead Guitar, Bass Guitar, Drums, Keyboard.
I am not in a band at this time. I am starting to get ITCHY to form or join a band and get out there WORKING again... NOT interested in playing Sweet Home Alabama and a bunch of beat to death covers.... Just sayin.
(Most of) The stuff on my music list was recorded at my own studio in Gainesville Texas... now defunct, but that stuff may give ya some idea of what I MAY be capable of... going forward.
There's everything from prog rockish stuff, to acoustic guitar, bluesy-ish, folksy, Celtic-ish, New Country Rock, New Age-ish, even some sort of mushed and mangled up Euro Trash Goth sounding stuff... Along with random noodlings with a recorder turned on.
I don't like RUTS... and I have played boat loads of covers of all genres... but I like coming up with original music.
The resume: Johnny Mutt:
I started playing guitar in 1966, picked up bass along the way (out of necessity), dabble with keyboards, and occasionally croak out some vocals. I do a little composing. Probably have been in and out of 40 bands (of various genres) over the years. Some were all original bands, some cover bands.

Lass of Glen Shee - Cover (Andy M. Stewart 1957)
Lass of Glen Shee - Cover (Andy M. Stewart 1957) Year: 2003 Album: Demo Recording for Vivat III SCA project. Genre: Folk
This was a down and dirty demo recording submitted for the SCA (non-profit org) Vivat III project in 2003. Cover of a tune composed by Andy M. Stewart (@1957). I sing lead and strum... Kristen (last name escapes me) sang the gal part... and members of the Black Rose group added fiddle and classical guitar picking...
Weekend Cowboys - test mix -no guitar leads
Weekend Cowboys - test mix -no guitar leads Year: 2008 Genre: Country
This is a basic foundation track test mix WORK in PROGRESS... it has plenty of space for 'em, but no guitar solo leads in it. No bass track is in there either... anything that sound like a bass is actually a Strat with an octave down chorus effect being index fingered in the midst of me playing the basic rhythm track.. LOL! This could easily be converted lyrically for a chick lead singer, to make it Weekend Cowgirl! My buddy Dave Van Sise (Seminole FL) originally wrote this tune in 1984... I rearranged and completely updated it from old twang country to a more upbeat, two steeping new country rock sound... WITH his full permission of course. MAYBE I'll finish this some day
Girl For Me - test mix, no guitar solo (DRATS)
Girl For Me - test mix, no guitar solo (DRATS) Year: 2008 Genre: Country
Work in progress test mix... pretty lame, but... ya gotta start somewhere. There is a spot for lead guitar work, but no tracks had been laid for it at the time of this mix... I played all the guitars and sang, Tom Jozz laid the drum tracks, played keys and sang, and Chris McCandless also sang. My buddy Dave Van Sise (Seminole FL) composed the original back in like 1984, I rearranged and up-dated it in 2008 with his FULL permission to do so... WHo knows maybe I'll finish the dang thing someday.
Smoke & Fire - instrumental-work in progress
Smoke & Fire - instrumental-work in progress Year: 2009 Genre: Celtic
this is a two part piece... Smoke is sort of New Age-ish... and Fire KICKS some Celtic ass. I used a rhythm machine for beat... layered in guitars (and effects)... It needs some Mando and Fiddle in the Fire part ... I sort of implied those instruments with some of the guitar work. So basically this is sort of a foundation/concept track to work from when other HUMANS eventually get involved
Jam Session CHAOS - Band with Beer in a Barn
Jam Session CHAOS - Band with Beer in a Barn Year: 2008 Genre: Other
This is a Feb 2008 Euro-Mutt band jam, "audition", new tune work up, practice session with a bunch of CRAZY musicians at my Studio (barn) in North Texas... with WAY TOO MUCH beer available... Witness the semi-managed almost controlled CHAOS... OH what fun.
Obsessed Year: 2006 Genre: Alternative
Not really sure WHAT the heck I was doing here... I guess it was an attempt at something eastern European Gothy sounding, screaming down a highway at night on a crotch rocket at full throttle??? WHo knows? I played all the instruments and layers and did a really crappy job of engineering this mess... BUT it's kinda fun, plenty of bass work, keys and gritty guitars... used a rhythm machine for the beat.
