ABOUT

I LOVE to create Original material with the flavor of many styles ~ Country ~ Rock ~ Southern Rock & Blues ~ Jazz ~ Reggae ~ Folk ~ R&B ~ Funk ~ with a serious focus on writing great songs!
I wouldn't mind playing with a Copy Band that is also fun to play, but please be advised that playing copy parts is no problem although my days of playing note for note copies are numbered! I am a very seasoned player and improvise solo's as well as play copy solo's! So as long as I have some creative input in what's being performed, it's all good.

Influences

Through the many years (over 50 with 35 professional) I have been influenced by a vast amount of guitarists, musicians and bands and have music degree's from The New School & Arron Copland School of Music. The styles of music that I enjoy performing the most are those where I have creative freedom! Folk ~ Blues ~ Country ~ Folk ~ R&B ~ Rock ~ Reggae ~ FUNK ~ Fusion ~ JAZZ ~ Southern Rock ~ Progressive Rock ~ and a lot more! I love to play simple and always melodic and then again complex, challenging depending ~ Music that is excellently performed and that breaths; has dynamic's! Original music is honestly preferred! The Profile Music GENRE limits the user to only 4 choices on this website which is stupid as this represents a limit on one's abilities and/or interests; on the other hand maybe it represents the limitations of whoever designed the site? Honestly speaking: Let's have a meeting of the minds and take it from there!! You can find me as TheNYStranger on Google and I use g mail.
