ABOUT

I am a hard working, but still pretty easy going vocalist/guitarist. I'm comfortable playing rhythm or lead guitar, both acoustic & electric. I also own an Danelectro Electric Sitar, which I'm getting pretty comfortable with, and I'm also a decent bass player. Though, I tend to find singing a bit awkward while playing bass. With guitar, it actually makes it easier for me to sing in key. I'm open to ideas, and also like playing covers, but I'm not into the tribute band thing. I'd rather play a mix of well chosen covers, with some section for improvisation. In the last 5-10 years I've really developed a taste for classic country and country rock. I'd like to do something that appeals to fans of classic country, but with a dash improvisation to appeal to the "jam-band" fans. My ideal situation would be group that started with mostly covers, but moves into original material once things starts to gel.
