ABOUT

Looking for high tenor vocalist and/or keyboardist to open up song list for wider range of material. ALSO interested in performing Acoustic music and Originals. and love jamming for the fun of it.
About me:
Retired early and have an instrument in my hands 50% of waking hours. Played in traveling bands till 25 then returned for degree and career. Enjoy playing either or both Acoustic and Electric, My vocal abilities cover the mid-tenor range (up to G 1st string break point into falsetto) very well, but, ideally teaming up with a high tenor would cover a broader range of material. I blend well when working with another guitarist. Quick to compose material and would do well working with a good lyricist. I'm a social drinker and non-smoker. I do not use drugs and have a passion for good music of any genre.
The following is what I play:
GUITAR: Classic Rock, Blues, Acoustic (play in all tunings),
some Country (just the most popular stuff).
some Jazz, Fusion & Modal, (still working on Bebop).
MANDOLIN : know all chords & can improvise, little bit of Bluegrass mainly good at creating parts.
BASS : Classic and some popping.
DOBRO & BANJO : can learn parts as required.
PEDDLE STEEL : currently learning.
SITAR, OUD, & HAMMER DULCIMER: noodle around & create
Know Music Theory very well but not the fastest sight reader.
Can cover all styles with exception of classical.
Can improvise and create head arrangement for parts on the fly.
Know to stay animated during performance keeping audience engaged.
