Vocalist - Alto.

ABOUT

I've been playing guitar for over 25 years. I began playing lead guitar by learning Chet Adkins "thumb style". I played Bluegrass for about a decade, and then I moved on to playing Dobro in bands for another 10 years. Then, I started playing more Country style music lead guitar. I can play traditional "chicken pickin" as well as more modern Country.

In addition to guitar and dobro, I can play banjo, mandolin, harmonica, and bass (electric or bass fiddle). I can also sing lead or harmony; I'm a baritone, but I can hit tenor if the lead singer is a female or a low-pitch male (like Josh Turner).

I am a Christian, so I don't drink or do drugs...I'm very reliable.
