About Me

I am a musican from Holland. I've played in several bands and toured many years through the country. In the last bluesband "The Ramshackle Bluesband" I've played leadguitar and slide and recorded 4 CD's. I am 56 years old and got tired of touring and left the band. Now I have a digital recording studio and try to make my own music.

Instruments I play

Lead-, rhythem- slide- and bassguitar, simple keyboard chords and riffs, drumprogramming. I try to sing but most of the time it's awful. My cousin sings, plays guitar, keyboard and harp.
Together we write and play music, for 40 years now.

Software I Use

Windows XP and a lot of studio and music software.

Hardware I Use

Excellent PC build by Pietersen Computers Utrecht with Intel Dual Core 6750, 4 Gb, Line 6 Toneport UX2, M-Audio 2496 Audiophile soundcard, AKG Perception studio mic, old keyboard.
Fender Strat, Dean Resonator, Yamaha aucoustic guitars and a 42 years old violin bassguitar from Egmond which was a gift from my parents.
