ABOUT

Mature guitarist.
I have been playing on and off since my mid-teens back in the 70s.
Studied classical guitar & piano way back so I can read music. Now I am retired I have more time to devote to music.

I am now concentrating on jazz.

I am available most days & evenings.

First played live when I was 16 playing solo acoustic at a Folk Club. Gigged many times mostly blues-rock bands in clubs & pubs. Then gave up to concentrate on career.in IT.

Returned to the guitar 20 years ago, concentrating on jazz - bebop, standards, etc. playing at jam sessions & in rehearsal bands.

I also have an interest in avent garde / free / experimental music. Yep, I'm one of those who actually enjoy contemporary serious music.
