ABOUT

I played all the guitar parts in the 3 demo songs and the 2 videos. I am singing in the second demo song and both of the videos.

1st - No, I'm not 21 years old but, Bandmix won't let me exclude my age from the profile. I have been playing guitar since the age of 10. I was 11 years old my first time on a stage. I liked it and still do!

I am available for 1 night a week band practice and 1 or 2 gigs per month. I can't play smoking bars because of allergic reactions to cigarette smoke.

EQUIPMENT

about 20 guitars and 13 amplifiers. I have a mild case of GAS.

Best guitars: Gibson LP Custom; GL Tribute, several Michael Kelly guitars; Chibson,; small covey of cheap Strat clones that I "experiment on"; misc other guitars.

My favorite amp is a Laney AOR 50 watt. I have other tube amps and a few solid state amps. No room for modeling amps - ever.
