ABOUT

Los Angeles and New Orleans Session and Club guitarist. Jazz trained, specialize in Country, R&B, Blues, and Funk. Read OK, charts and scores. Not a 1 take sight reader. Have good gear but not a gear head. Like playing with a rhythm section. Also accompanying singers. I have my music theory down better than most and my ear is very well trained. Can also play sax in a pinch, but not an ace. Can arrange harmonies and horn parts.
