About Me

Been writing and playing my own music in my spare time for the last 35 years. In the early years with bands, here on looperman with Jim Byrd and Allen Venable in the Transatlantic Experience project.

Instruments I play

Guitars and bass, some occational keyboards just because I love the sound of a B3.

Software I Use

Garageband (love it!) and occationally Logic, Reason and Cubase. I also use some amp software like Amplitube3 and Studio Devil that actaully both offer really authentic tube amp sounds.

Hardware I Use

Yamaha Soundcard, Macbook pro 17", a strat from the seventies, a steinberger, a telecaster and a fretless precision.
