Welcome to Mike's Page

Hi, I'm a guitar player that wants to be good really bad but has way too many other responsibilities to happy with my progress. I've been playing about 20 years but you'd never know it by my playing. Most of that time was spent playing rhythm in worship bands (I am good at that!). The last several years has been spent as the only guitar player in our band so I've learned to be a little more versitile. I studied jazz for two years through private lessons with a studio and session player. That has probably helped me the most.

Gear and other stuff.

I have become a Fender junkie of late. I play a '96 AmStd Telecaster through a '68 SF Deluxe Reverb. My style includes Jazz, blues, pop, and indie stuff. I love to listen to Country pickin and rockabilly too. Maybe someday I'll get a chance to learn that stuff.
