I have been playing live for over 27 years. I do like it but have backed out of the "live thing" and am trying to concentrate on recording at home. But I would do some outdoor gigs, fairs & festivals as a fill-in musician if I was needed.
I have a Brent Mason flavor in my playing style on the country side. The rock side of my playing is so widely varied that I cannot give an example other than to say I am pretty fast and a good bit of "attitude" in my playing in that genre. Some say that that I have a blues edge/flavor in my playing. My Jazz is all over the place. My Bluegrass playing sucks (I make it sound country) I don't dance on the stage when I play. I am comically whimsical at times. Mostly, I let my guitar performances do the talking. I am a great team player or a stand out performer.
I play a 1978 USA Fender Telecaster with EMG pick-ups and an installed Roland GK-2a MIDI controller/pick-up. I use a Boss GT-3 Effects processor on the guitar tones and a Roland GR-1 guitar Synthisizer.I occasionally use a Roland VG-88ex for recording. I play through a Roland Jazz Chorus 120 amplifer. I use a brass slide that I designed. (I have the only one in the world like it!) I also have a Fender Strat I play sometimes.
I have performed over 4000 gigs in my 27 years of playing. I have never missed or cancelled any gig that was scheduled. I took one week off with notice for my wedding day and honeymoon.
