ABOUT

HI. Im 50 years old and have been playing guitar for over 30 years. I do lots of finger picking blues and folk. I play blues harmonica and mandolin. I can chord on piano or keyboards. I love just about any music. I can play some of the Clapton unplugged stuff and I can do rhythm to just about anything. I like Celtic Rock, Irish, Maritime, Flamenco guitar, Classic Rock, old country and just about anything else really. I haven't played any gigs other than a few open mics. I'm looking for anyone who would like to jam on a regular basis and maybe put a band together. I am also open to auditioning for band. I have a heated garage with drums and a rinky dink pa system. I have a friend who can play drums and has awesome volcals. I can sing background and lead but I don't have a great range or endurance. I am semi-retired and am usually available.
