Foremost, I'm a guitarist.
My history includes engineering on large scale live sound systems and engineering in professional recording studios. I write songs and produce, too. Music belongs in my life & I embrace it.
Electric Guitar, Acoustic guitar & I'm learning electric bass by trial and error!

MPC 1000, M-box pro-fire, micro-Korg, Roland U-220

I want to be Eddie Van Halen... at least guitar-wise.

People say I sound like Van Halen, Jeff Beck or Jimmy Page. My ex-mother-in-law once said I sounded like Jimi Hendrix. LOL!
I'm good, but I'm not THAT good!
Tear up nashville sidewalks and greenways on a mountain bike. Play guitar for the Eric Stuart Band shows often.
