ABOUT

{ I WILL BE REDOING MY PROFILE HERE LITTLE AT A TIME. IT'S BEEN A WHILE SINCE I'VE DONE SO. EVERYTHING HERE IS A LITTLE OLD NOW AND IT'S TIME TO GET UP TO DATE }

I'm a Lead Guitar Player.

(I do play more than one instrument but my main is lead guitar.)

I play most classes/styles of music from Jazz to Metal.
I read and write music.
I catch on quick and can jam with anyone in most styles no matter how easy or complicated.

I like doing covers, Instrumental / freestyle / experimental / Improv and originals.

Sometimes I play to backing tracks out in public when the weather is nice.

As my playing progressed during the years so has my taste in different styles of music.


______ WHAT I'M LOOKING FOR _______

Looking for some well rounded LOCAL musicians to play out with or do studio jam sessions.

( Would love to get some hired studio work.)

__________ HISTORY__________

Started learning piano at the age of 5.
Playing Guitar since the age of 16.
