ABOUT

Fingerpicking guitar player, banjo (both clawhammer and scruggs style), bass for recordings, vocalist. I also have a strong background in Audio, and have my own equipment to record. Music is a journey, and I tend to have affinities with people who are passionate about learning, exploring, exchanging, and who opt for wise addition of tasteful elements rather than for blowing notes from the beginning to the end of a piece. Tell me you like to improvise when you cook and I'll know what kind of musician you are! Bottom line, I am here for pleasure, fun. and meeting new musicians to experiment with, enjoy jams, and who knows, maybe even record (I have good equipment for recording).
