ABOUT

Jazz guitarist, self taught. I've studied, listened to, transcribed, and tried my best to learn from many guitarists over the years. But you ultimately need to end up sounding like yourself. Everything I play has some sort of jazzy twist to it, and this helps in gigs at upscale restaurants, clubs, and corporate functions. Played mostly in NY and NJ clubs over the years before moving to FL. Still looking for an upright bass player and jazz drummer to form a local trio where we can explore a range of musical ideas and continue to learn. I'm not a rocker, don't want to be. jazzmann272

Influences

What does it matter who you're influenced by? How you approach the instrument and how you sound playing it is what matters. The tone is in the fingers anyway... you just have to figure out which fingers it's in.

EQUIPMENT

Enough equipment to perform in smaller venues (up to 100 people). I played a plastic guitar at a club once, and people said it still sounded like me... but the tone really sucked.
