How long have you been playing:

20 years…but I started on Piano when I was 5.

It’s awesome! No, but seriously, it runs in the family. I started teaching myself songs on piano and when I was 10 my grandpa, who played professionally helped my mom get me my first guitar. I still have that guitar.

 

What Gear Do You Use:

Guitars: Stratocaster, Telecaster, PRS SE, and anything else that feels good. Amp: a Marshall Silver Jubilee, and pretty much anything fender with Tubes Pumping through Cascade Speaker Cabinets.

Too many to name all but Clapton, Hendrix, Trower, Fleetwood Mac, Stevie Wonder, Stevie Ray Vaughan, BB King, Albert King, Albert Collins, Muddy Waters, Marvin Gaye, Donny Hathaway, the Beatles, The Stones and anything good.

Don’t watch much TV but I love Anime, Marvel Films, and I have a pretty large Fantasy book collection.
