Acoustic and electric guitar since the 70's. I grew up playing drums and keyboards first. My "regular gigs" are playing in my church's praise team and playing in a jazz big band.
It's fun for me to be original and creative, so I don't like to try to sound like someone else's recording.
I try to be the best rhythm player I can, adding feel and/or texture. In a group, I try to play what everyone else is not. So, if the piano has full chords, I play shell voicings; if keyboards are in a high register, I play low; if the bass is adding a 4/4 feel, I add rhythm.

When I first learned guitar in the 70's, I was influenced by Chuck Berry, Ron Wood and Keith Richard. In the 2000's I started working on the blues and was influenced by Eric Clapton, BB King, the Vaughan brothers and Jimmy Reed. In the past 10 years I've been into jazz: swing, Coltrane, Jim Hall, many others.

You can never have too many guitars, right?
