About
I am a guitarist that has been playing for over 50 years. I have played in bands professionally for over 30 years in California, Texas and Indiana. I have written thousands of compositions in the Rock, Blues, Country, Acoustic Singer/Songwriter, Americana, Contemporary Folk genres. For the last several years primarily Acoustic Singer/Songweriter and Americana/Folk genres but I still love doing rock and blues. I have hundreds of songs ready to go with great musical hooks. I am not a singer or a great lyricist. I prefer writing music. I have an in home studio using LogicPro but have used ProTools for years but I do prefer LogicPro. I have primarily worked with a lyricist and female vocalist here in south Florida. For every song we complete there are 30-40 music compositions that don't get used.
