I'm really a rock guitarist, and I used to play professionally in various bands.
These days, I'm into country blues, ragtime and slide playing in open tunings on my National Reso-phonic Tricone Style 1 guitar. I'm attracted to the idea of one person being able to play everything necessary for a full listening experience, the portability and ever-readiness of the one-man-band. I guess this is a very social attraction too, and hence I hope you'll enjoy the tunes I've uploaded here.
Everything you hear is recorded in my home on my PC using RME hardware interface and a Rode Nt-1 condenser microphone. Voice and guitar at the same time, into the same microphone.
As I said before, I'm into getting a good tone on my acoustic instrument, and playing it because I have too, and because it makes me happy to play it, and to share my music with anyone interested in giving it a listen. Thanks for coming around.
Yes I do, I play clubs and all sorts of venues. I like it a lot.
Jimi Hendrix, for the soul and the love of it, Blind Willie Johnson for the sheer emotional universality and spirituality, Robert Johnson for the power and the poetry, Tampa Red for the sweet tone and the gentle touch, Skip James for the vision, Bukka White for the energy and the life force, Sam Chatmon for the tonal language - the list goes on, but I'll stop here.
