Attitude

I've been pickin' and grinnin' since the age of 12, when I mowed lawns to save enough $ for my first axe. Bluegrass roots, with the Blues firmly rooted in my DNA. I am an ardent believer in what the great Joe Satriani once told me: "Play What You Feel!" My love affair with the guitar started at age 9 when my brother showed me the E-Minor7-A progression in Neil Young's "Down By The River",on which I jammed for hours on end. I fell in love with flatpicking at age 12 after seeing a bluegrass band perform at an ox roast in Highlands N.C. For a while, while other kids my age were paying homage to Jimmy Page, I worshiped at the temple of Doc Watson. The classic album "Will the Circle Be Unbroken" fed my soul those days. I teamed up with a buddy of mine who had also caught the bluegrass bug and who became a kick-ass Scruggs-style 5 string banjo player. However, when it gets right down to it, at the root of my souI are all forms of the Blues (I can remember wearing out the grooves to the Johnny Winter And Live and EC Was Here albums back in the day) and continue to tap into that primal energy. I also happen to love big band, bebop, cuban , African stuff like Ladysmith Black Mambazo, Down Tempo/Trip Hop and even classical Indian "Ragas". Yeah, call me schizophrenic when it comes to music.
