ABOUT

I'm a lead electric guitar player with about 7 years of experience. I've played in quite a few genres but mostly originals and instrumental music. I've been very involved in the free jazz scene in London but I can play many different styles - it really depends on the project. For instance, I've played in musical theatre but also in thrash bands.
---
Besides electric I'm also a creative acoustic guitar player (nylon string) and would love to be in a world music or acoustic project. The sort of music ECM records would put out.

EQUIPMENT

Steinberger GR4 headless guitar w/ fixed bridge with 2 Bare Knuckle Blackhawks humbuckers. Very versatile, can cover almost any genre. Have played this guitar in dozens of gigs and rehearsals.
Peerless Manhattan jazz guitar with flat wounds.
Ibanez RG550XH guitar with Dimarzio pickups and Floyd... and 30 frets. Standard rock guitar. Shreddy. Extended upper range is a nice gimmick.
Washburn N5 copy w/ 3 single coils and Floyd. Covers all the strat sounds I'd ever need.
Manuel Raimundo C18/63 classical guitar. Setup w/ very low action. I play with pick and fingers although I can also play fingerstyle if needed.
Lots of wonderful pedals.
