ABOUT

I am a 52 year old lead guitarist. I have over 40 years of experience playing lead guitar for a number of different genres. I am looking for a group of dedicated guys and/or gals willing to committ to serious part-time regional work. I am open to classic rock, blues, red dirt country/southern rock, or hard rock/80s-90s metal, or classic country. I would prefer to work with a group of musicians serious about their original work, but I am perfectly OK with playing covers as well. If you need a professional-minded lead guitarist reach out to me and let's talk.
