ABOUT

Fifty something year old guitar player.
Currently I'm playing with "Heart and Soul" (70s stuff) and "Bluz Dogz" (Rock/Blues) and now "Adamantium Steel" (contemporary hits).
These have faded away; "Touch" (Bar gig stuff) and "Collaz" (smooth jazz/R&B originals).
You can hear clips on the vids I posted. (BSU has disbanded :( )
I started playing guitar in high school - took about 20 years off - now I'm back.
Grew up on classic rock/pop then graduated to jazz after high school.
Love jazz, especially Latin jazz.
***You can e-mail me at Stephen_Beakin at ya hoo dot com.

Or get me at my space stephenbspace

I also set up and repair guitars and amps.
I also do mods on tube amps.
So if you need any work done for a lot less money than regular techs, hit me up.
Come to one of my gigs and check out my little BIG amp.

I am now using a Roland GR-55 synth for various different instrument sounds. Lots O' Fun.
