ABOUT

I'm a 40 year old guitarist who has been playing since age 13, gigging since age 15. I've played everything...blues, rock, funk, metal, country, soul, pop, punk etc. I've played professionally and these days I play for fun. I just moved here from Atlanta where I gigged multiple times a week and I still do some minor session work at home.

I'm just looking to jam / gig with like minded people with similar influences and life situation. I work full time and travel a bit. I have teenage kids which are a priority.

I bring a high level of musicianship and professionalism to the table. I'd like to play with great musicians in a great situation, rocking out to killer tunes.

Anyway, I'm pretty laid back and would love to find the right musicial situation. I have pro gear, good chops and more importantly, a good ear...I play well with others :D
