ABOUT

I've been in music my entire life, self taught guitarist as a kid on an old 3/4 size classical. Put it in the attic until several years ago, then got back into it. My technical skills are above average, and I would put my musical ear up against any professional musician. I am not a fast "shredder" on the guitar, but can play with soul, and I know and feel music. I can pretty much learn anything, and understand enough music theory to get by.

My perfect band would be a Led Zeppelin tribute/cover band, Tom Petty cover band, or a Late 60s' - 70's "mello" band (Neil Young, Led Zeppelin, ELP, Pink Floyd), or a slow soulful Jazz group with a female singer, but I'm open to just about anything that is done right and is musically satisfying. I love playing Jazz, and spend a lot of my time playing finger-style acoustic pieces (Chet Atkins, Paul Simon, Clapton).

Influences

Classic rock (Hendrix, Led Zeppelin, Tom Petty, AC/DC, Clapton, JJ Cale), 80's Metal (just about everything), more modern stuff (Staind, Rage, Limp Bizkit, Soundgarden, etc). I also enjoy listening to and playing softer acoustic stuff (Seal, Joni Mitchell, Neil Young, Fleetwood Mac). I also like some more modern stuff like JJ Gray, Ray Lamontagne, etc.
