I am an experienced guitarist who has played rock / alternative country and blues for quite some time - but also quite eclectic in scope with interest in acoustic / celtic / world music / jazz and even some neo-punk.
Seeking creative musicians to connect with. I play very fine lead and rhythm guitar - electric and acoustic - to play live and record.
I would be very glad to speak with you - whether you are an intermediate or a very advanced musician - or an existing band (mitchie harris at optonline dot net). Good things often happen unexpectedly.

- Years playing music:
We all have had many musical influences. I've always loved the Stones, they were my first exposure to the Blues and I love (traditional and alternative) Country - like Merle and Emmy Lou - the two idioms can mix wonderfully. The intersection of country and blues is where rock and roll began.
Buddy Miller / The Paul Butterfield Band with Mike Bloomfield / Loreena McKennitt / Kraftwerk / Charlie Parker / Lucinda Williams / Louis Armstrong / Emmy Lou Harris / The Yardbirds / Brian Eno Merle Haggard with Roy Nichols / so many great country music Telecaster players / The Band / the music scene in Austin / The Metropolitan Blues Express / Tom Petty / The Blues Project / The Eagles and The Rolling Stones have been some significant influences - but of course there are so many more.
