ABOUT

For lack of a better description, I like southern classic-blues-rock guitar-band style best, but also great lyrics & melodies supported by interesting chord structures and arrangements. Cover bands are OK but I play my impressions of songs - not keen on exact tribute-style. More recently leaving covers behind and prefer original songs, which I write my own. Interested in collaboration.

EQUIPMENT

Main guitar is '99 American Fat Strat; '97 Les Paul Standard; '95 Standard SG; '63 Harmony H75 which I bought new back then. For tiny rooms I use a Fender 30W Champ; larger rooms I'll add a Celestion 12" Cube or move up to '95 Fender Deluxe also adding the Celestion cube to get really loud if necessary.
Not much a fan of effects pedals which I have a few; rely mostly on Fender amp overdrives and Green Monster or Ibanez Tube Screamer, individually or in series.
