ABOUT

Have played guitar and making music for over 3 decades. Have basic but quickly improving capability with keys and synths, very knowledgeable with MIDI setups, etc, but guitar has been my main instrument. Can do some (limited range) background and lead vocals. I am a recent transplant to Greenville from the snowy Ohio north shore where I was lead guitar and background vocals for a successful cover band performing songs of all types of music. "Have fun and enjoy the moment". A person’s positive attitude is really more important to me than pro-quality chops. But pro-quality chops are also welcome if you have em! I have very broad musical interests, ranging from all early British Invasion bands to ZZ Top to Bruno Mars. I am open to the band's music focus, such as Roots Rock, R&B/Dance/Funk, 80's covers, modern country or groove/power jam. I do this for serious fun so a couple of times a month gigging schedule (except summer festival season where a bit more is cool) is my max, with work, family and other interests. It's hard to make a quality project happen but it can, it takes commitment.

Update: I am open to joining an established band that seeks a flexible talented guitarist. Call me at 216-543-1676 and lets see if our interests and music goals are a match
