Lead Guitar, Bass Guitar.

ABOUT

I am an all around styled and seasoned musician. Rock,Jazz, Funk, Fusion, Latin,Bossanova, R&B and Blues, I enjoy both guitar and bass equally and play both at a pro skill level. Although I am already in a national and internationally televised group, I am still looking for an established or near working gig band that I can jump into that can operate around my work schedule. I do my homework and I am always prepared for the gig.You can either see one of my videos or check out my sound at ://.soundclick/thefunkyguitarist

EQUIPMENT

I play both an American Fender Strat Deluxe (with a very accurate wilkinson tremolo I might add) with SCN noiseless pickups and a Laguna electric guitar with GK-3 guitar synth pickup attached which controls my Roland GR 20 guitar synth. My acoustic is an Ibanez (EW35ABENT model) Acoustic/Electric Guitar with Olive Ash Burl Body, Mahogany Neck, B-Band UST Pickup, and Ibanez SRTc Preamp - Natural.
My Bass is an ESP LTD LB-5 which is a 5 stringed bass & I use EZ DRUMMER for Drums and percussion.I use a Boss GT-8 guitar processor for my guitar tone. For Bass I use a Boss LMB-3 Limiter Enhancer and sometimes a little chorus depending on the song as well for my funky sound & I record with Sonar 7XL. My bass rig has been cut down to a 350 watt Fender Rumble with 2x10's and a horn. Sounds killer! That 1000 watt amp Carvin I had before was over kill.
