ABOUT

I'm looking to team up with a group of like-minded musicians who enjoy playing for the song, letting every bandmates's talents shine as often as possible, fostering positive energy and creativity, learning new songs, and who are respectful of other people's time. I'm equally comfortable playing rhythm or lead guitar parts for any given song, and I like to sing lead vocals for a few songs here and there in a set but I really prefer listening to others singing lead vocals more (especially if they're good!!) while I support with backing vocals if needed. I can practice/jam on Friday nights or weekends, and I would love to form a band with the purpose of playing out on weekends or join a band that is already doing so.

Influences

I started playing guitar in the 80's because I loved SRV, the Scorpions, Van Halen, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Allman Bros, Bob Marley, and Eric Clapton. Since that time I've come to appreciate listening to and playing good music from any genre, though my musical core is still blues-rock-country. Current influences are too numerous to name.

EQUIPMENT

My "go to"guitars for gigs are a Taylor Solid Body Classic and a 2020 Jericho Walnut Fusion Evertune for my electrics and a Martin 000C-16GTE for my acoustic. I use a 2006 Fender '65 Deluxe Reverb ReIssue amp and a variety of effects pedals depending on the tunes selected (I use effects pedals sparingly to serve the song, not to drench my tone).
