Influences

If I had to narrow it down, right now I find myself listening most to Beano era Clapton, Peter Green, Jeff Beck, Free, Elmore James, and other blues masters. I'm deep into Mahavishnu Orchestra, John McLaughlin's solo work, and John Scofield (easily one of my favorite guitar players). I love Zappa's stuff, Pink Floyd, Robin Trower, JJ Cale, Gabor Szabo, Duane Allman, Jerry G. I'm into Tedeschi Trucks Band (love Derek Trucks playing), Gary Clark Jr., Doyle Bramhall II, Gov't Mule, Black Keys, Jack White, Widespread Panic, The Invisible Whip....and many others. I listen to everything.

EQUIPMENT

Like many guitarists who have been playing for a while, I'm a total tone chaser with a wide assortment of gear. Right now I'm partial to Humbucker equipped Fenders and Gibsons with my Victoria 20112 (5E3) and a 'Beano Boost', this is a fairly dirty setup which doesn't leave room for cleans. But I do love a lot of different tones...from more traditional scooped cleans and filtered tones to exploratory modulation and I have a fairly large arsenal to support such aspirations.
