I can play almost any chord you want me to play on guitar. I have built-in rhythm (played drums for the better part of 25 years). I also know scales and modes (though not cat-quick, but won't put you to sleep). I can lay down a rhythm, and know how to stay out of other players' way. Also, pretty good at call-and-response.

Musical Influences & Inspiration

I wanted to learn guitar because of Duane Allman. (I've listened to Stormy Monday enough times to almost be embarrassing.). I believe Albert Collins had more rhythm in his lead lines than anyone--period. I love the soul of Sam Cooke and Al Green, the funk of Earth, Wind, and Fire, the rhythm guitar of Hendrix, Srv's jazzy side, anything Joe Pass played. I also dig yacht rock. Other influences: Atlanta Rhythm Section, Little River Band, Ec, Eagles, 38 Special, and, last but not least, is the music from my grandparents' era, Big Band jazz. I really could go on and on, but this should give you a pretty good picture of my musical taste. I also like to experiment with the ethereal sounds of ambient music, just to see where it takes me.

Music Genres

Proficient With

Acoustic Guitar, Lead Guitar, Rhythm Guitar

Gear & Equipment

Acoustic guitar is an old beaten up one that sounds great. My electric setup includes a Fender Strat and a Peavey modeling amp that makes more sounds than I will ever use (it usually stays on the clean channel). I also own a Fender Twin '65 reissue, but it's not with me. For all of you looking for a drummer, I could do it easily, but I no longer own a kit. Sorry.
