ABOUT

I'm playing guitar with a 3-piece blues-rock group but not as often as I'd like. I'd love to find some people in the area who were interested in jamming, writing and recording originals, and performing as things progressed. My style/background has a strong blues influence, but some of the stuff I write might be called "Americana," or classic R&B style, or maybe "adult contemporary," and of course everybody loves a good country song.
I put in my time on the road back in the day, and I'm reasonably proficient on guitar (lead, rhythm, slide, finger-pick, etc.). In my blues-rock group I handle most of the vocals, but my range is a bit limited. I'm what you might call a utility singer.
I'll have a drink now and then, but I'm a light drinker and I prefer working with people of similar habits.
Check out the tunes on this page, or my cover material at .bandmix/theslydogband/ and if you'd like to talk about it, I'm at 404-569-3465

Influences

Songwriting influences are subtle, but a few that come to mind are: Bob Dylan (good luck), the Motown and classic R&B writers, JJ Cale, JL Hooker, Jimmy Reed, Lowell George, ZZ Top (don't laugh), Paul Simon, Buddy Holly, a lot of classic rock writers that no one knows. If you've ever heard of Tom Lehrer, I think he influenced me as a child.
Musical/Guitar Influences would include: Bernard Allison, Duane Allman, Taj Mahal, JL Hooker, Santana, Albert King, Elmore James, Lowell George, Johnny Winter, ZZ Top, all that great 60s & 70s R&B (Wilson Pickett, James Brown, Solomon Burke, et al.), Danny Gatton and can't forget Mel Bay!

EQUIPMENT

Modified Magical Tele; a couple of open-tuned Epiphone SGs for slide; amps and some PA/recording equipment.
