ABOUT

I'd like to put together a duo or trio that does mostly covers, but I'd like to do a little writing if the mood strikes. I play out about once a month, but I'd do more with the right group.

My current repertoire is seriously all over the place and covers several decades of crowd-pleaser music.

I would be playing mostly acoustic guitar and doing lead and harmony vocals, so I need someone who can sing both lead and harmony and can play something like violin/fiddle, cello, guitar, mandolin, banjo, even bongos/congas, or another acoustic guitar — something along those lines.

About me: I'm 44 and have been a musician for over 30 years. I play saxophone, guitar, Native American flute, and various hand percussion (cajon, djembe, udu, but I'm useless on a drumset) I love LOTS of different kinds of music, and I've been in several different kinds of bands from acoustic duo to full rock band to ska. I'm a good singer and a solid rhythm guitarist but am just kinda eh on lead guitar. Lately, I've been performing solo or duo acoustic rock covers from the 60s through the 2000s with some older country peppered in.

I'm only looking to play locally (within an hour or so of Hot Springs). I work full time, so rehearsal time (what's that??) will be limited to evenings and weekends.

With the right match-up, this could be a lot of fun. I'm very easy to get along with and avoid drama like the plague. Also, you don't have to be a world-class player to play with me — I'm sure not one.

Anyone?

Influences

I love everything from the Deftones to the Eagles to Pearl Jam to a bunch of not-so-well-known folk, alt country, & new bluegrass bands and singer/songwriters. I even like classical and jazz, but I haven't performed any of that for over 20 years.
