ABOUT

Jeff Beck - Jimmy Page - Duane Allman - Carlos Santana - Andy Summers - SGsideman
They all play guitar, rhythm/lead. all of the above - all at the same time, they all write music, they all accompany others performing original music particularly well and they're all "NON singers". RIP DA. Only one is available in Portland Maine .. that's ME sgsideman a g mail

I am Jim, the sgsideman, a {former singer}/songwriter & guitarist in Blues, Rock, Fusion, Progressive & Southern rock, Alternative & Americana bands, from Portland to Boston. I am available as a sideman, writer, arranger, guitarist, and or multi instrumentalist for your original project!
I have been a genre defying sideman & 6 string chameleon performing many styles of electric & acoustic guitar with very different artists for many years. Prior to 1995 in the Boston area, here in Portland since.
Available nights and weekends for serious original music efforts in the Portland area. Seeking a band project that will play out but I have extensive recording experience too if needed.
Audio examples available, what band/style would you like hear?

For myself, I am also looking for vocalists/co-writers for a recording project. I am looking for a story teller like Robert Plant/ Jim Morrison/ Eddie Vedder/ Ronnie VanZant/ Roger Daltry/ Jon Anderson/ David Lee Roth – you get the idea - front person to bring it >>> <<instrument not required>>
>> See also Patty Smith, Pat Benatar, Janis to Joni etc ..
Additional non-singing musicians and or co-writers particularly encouraged as well.
