ABOUT

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. Would like to join or form a group capable of playing either or both Acoustic or Electric, and have fun playing 70/80/90's material ...OR if you're just interested in jamming...? My vocal abilities cover the mid-tenor range (up to G 1st string) 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 neither should you...and if a person of good character with a passion for music, what could be better!
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 : noodle around & create
Know Music Theory very well but slow at reading.
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.
