ABOUT

SGsideman, sounds like .. Jeff Beck, Jimmy Page, Duane Allman, Andy Summers, see also top 20 list below...
"I play electric guitars, rhythm/lead, or both. I like trios and larger groups. I write music and I accompany others performing original music particularly well, though I'm now "99% a NON singer".
Available NOW in the Portland Maine area, send interest to > sgsideman a g mail

I have worked in Americana, Alternative, Blues, Grunge - Metal, Rock, Progressive - Fusion & Southern rock bands, performing on 6 string electric guitar with many different New England artists. In the Boston area Prior to 1995, and here in Portland and southern Maine since.

2020 Rocks in Portland - I'm playing a proper tube amp again!
Available nights and weekends for serious original music efforts in the greater Portland area.
Currently seeking a band project that will compose together but I'd entertain joining an existing group and I also have extensive recording experience as needed. Audio examples in many styles available by request. .
For myself, I am seeking a Bassist & Drummer as co-writers for original recording projects. I am also looking for a story teller Vocalist like a Robert Plant/ Jim Morrison/ Eddie Vedder/ Ronnie VanZant/ Roger Daltry/ Jimi Hendrix/ Chuck Berry - a front person to own it & bring it! >> See also Patty Smith, Pat Benatar, Janis & Joni, Chaka Khan & Aretha..
