Hi Folks, I am from the deep south in Mississippi and have a lot of country, gospel, blues, jazz, and some classic pop/rock influences that gets tangled up in my guitar music. I even mix a little bluegrass pick'n in every once in awhile.
I have been goofing around with music for several years. (most of my life actually) I have played in bands, some studio stuff, church bands and ensembles, and a whole lot of home recording. ...but now, (as of 2012) I am leading worship music in church. ...and I was so much more comfortable just being a prior church guitarist (so much less work hahaha. No serious, I am having the time of my life, and am blessed to play with some guys that are not just talented, but also very good friends. ...and a congregation that does not frown when I bring my Tele or Strat (guitars) in, or my drummer that brings in his drums and percussion setup that takes up half the choir loft (grin). Honestly? Its really not about the style as much as the purpose and doing so in a respectful way.
Many of the songs I have on this page are songs in recent years where I have recorded with other musicians from around the world. Some of them I played guitar or keyboard for others on their material, and some of them were just some songs made up "on the fly" where we each played and recorded our instruments (or sung), then emailed all the parts back and forth through email/internet and then mixed a final song. Then some of them are just me having my own little jam in my music room here at the house
Now this is pretty cool. By using the internet, It lets me record with people all over the world that I have never met, and because of their location (Italy, England, Australia etc) I would never have an opportunity to meet and perform with live, ...but it is now possible because of the internet, as it opens a global door for some musical playing fun with other musicians.
I often spend some time on youtube looking around for interesting music and occasionally post a few finds here as I find them here. This round it is Bart Millard doing a gospel hymn in an unusual swing style. Then next is Brian May (of Queen) in concert playing a nice guitar solo
