During my time as a musician, I've learned to play a few instruments. I try to apply what I know in an emotional and sometimes not so tight fashion. Since it's just me, one of my goals was to make this record sound like there are more than one musician playing all the instruments. I hope I have achieved that.
As far as drums go I'm an anything player. As far as guitar goes ,Well, I'm just a blues player. The music on this CD. is a combination of both styles with a little bit of jazz thrown in for good measure.
Melody is my all original 1965 Gibson Melody Maker. She has quite the personality. She speaks to me like no other.
