ABOUT

Long time rhythm electric and acoustic (6 & 12 string) player, looking to join a dedicated group of musicians as a rhythm or second guitarist, with a little lead work mixed in.

My specialties are:
- intricate acoustic leads and rhythms
- electric rhythm guitar
- acoustic and unplugged classic rock
- complementary (but not primary) electric leads

Been playing about 40 years but my kids are off to college so I now have "unlimited" time now to really put in to this.

Ideally I would like to find a classic rock and pop cover band that plays parties, events and bars/clubs.

Also interested in doing some "unplugged" acoustic sets as duo with a vocalist or with a group.
