Hi, Welcome to my Soundclick page. Please take a couple seconds to write some comments after you've listened to the music, whether it's good/bad or indifferent. Let me know you were here and what you think.
The first album I ever bought was Stevie Wonder's Greatest hits when I was about 9. Then I went "metal" during my early teen years, until I started playing guitar. I had a great first teacher named Rod Robillard, and he introduced me to Jeff Beck, Clapton, Hendrix, and other blues based guitar players. Most importantly, he taught me how to use my ear and teach myself. My biggest guitar playing influences are Gary Moore, Hendrix, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Neal Schon, Eric Johnson, and Joe Satriani. There's quite a few more that I love to listen to, but I don't think their playing has seeped into mine to the extent that those six did.
My guitars are a Fender strat, an Ibanez Artist, and a Yamaha acoustic. I've got a Fender Deville that I run a couple pedals through. For home use I'm using a Kemper Profiler through M-Audio BX8a monitors. I've also got a Yamaha DGX 620 electric piano in the basement that acts largely as a storage rack for books and cables...Hopefully my kids will spend more time learning to play it than I have.
