Blue Attitude
NEWS   Been working with a great keyboard player over the last few months, really takes the music to another place. Will upload the tracks here when they are ready.
I spent many years playing blues guitar in bands at the semi-pro level, weekend gigs in clubs mostly. Finally got sick of trying to keep part time bands together and decided to do my own thing for a while. I do guitar instrumentals, mostly blues, but also stuff along the lines of something Santana might do.

I have two CD's available on CDBaby, one featuring my blues playing and one featuring my latin rock material. Check out my homepage, http://www.blue-attitude.net/ for details, or go to my CDBaby site, http://cdbaby.com/all/blueattitude.
Why this name?
All of my music has a blues feel to it, even the stuff that is not straight 12 bar. I approach any music project with a "Blue Attitude" ... plus I think it is a very cool name :P
Do you play live?
Not any more. I used to love it, nothing like the buzz you get from playing in front of an audience. I will most likely go that route again someday, but for now I am having too much fun doing the solo recording thing.
How, do you think, does the internet (or mp3) change the music industry?
It makes it possible for someone like me to get their music heard by people all over the world. How cool is that? In addition I have met musician friends from all over the world via the internet and have collaborated with them by trading files back and forth.
Would you sign a record contract with a major label?
No, no interest. The internet makes it possible for an indie artist to promote and sell his own material to a global market. Screw the record companies.
Band History:
Last real band I was in broke up around '95, been doing the solo recording thing for the last couple of years. Lately I have also been collaborating with other indie musicians via the internet; I work on their projects and they work on mine.
Your influences?
Ronnie Earl, Santana, Otis Rush, Albert King, Clapton, Johnny Winter, Robben Ford, Magic Sam. Lots of other guys over the years. I am more into guys that have good feel than guys that have great technique.
Equipment used:
Fender Strat, PRS CE22 into a Johnson J-Station plugged directly into my soundcard.
Anything else...?
