Let's Play

Jammin' Not Famine

Been playing for almost 3 years now, I have a Black American Strat, and a Fender Deluxe that is totally rockin'. Thats really all I need, but I have a Vox Clyde McCoy Wah that I am trying to get nasty with. I also like to play the harp when I jam. I play alot. I use the guitar as a stress reliever from school, its how I like to unwind.

I am in an original rock band. My brother is also in the band playing guitar and we can get those tight family vocal harmonies goin on so thats cool.

I need to get pics up.

I am a history major at the University of Rhode Island. I study American history and alot of my research is in music and pop culture. I am writing my senior thesis on sexual controversies in blues and early jazz music. Let me know if you ever want to read it.
