ABOUT

I've been playing guitar for 50 years...Child ballads, show tunes, classic rock, 70s Prog (my love).
I'm mostly a "color" guitarist, like The Edge, David Gilmour, Joe Satriani. I am unschooled; my playing is very sloppy, and I use a wah extensively but more highly integrated into my playing than others. Color me chromatic, dark, minor key. Love to make snarling lion noises. Down there: 12-54 strings tuned down to D.

Currently working on one major life goal: getting my Fishman Triple Play to trigger the Moog Modular on my computer and put it into my 100 watt Marshall. Keith may have gotten paroled, but somebody has to relieve him properly.
