All that Jazz

Hey and welcome

What can I say? Playing guitar quite a long time now. Picked up Jazz about five years ago. Love it, but progress is slow due to lack of talent. Still enjoying it greatly. Each friday night we jam in an old hospital in Haarlem, the Netherlands. Great fun!

Gear

I own a 1996 Gibson L4CES, a Taylor Big Baby, Epiphone Emeror Regent and a Samick tele Mike Stern/Pacifica immitation that is a feast to play. Earlier this year I picked up a nice (and handy) Roland Jazz chorus 77 from a internet auction. For practicing I use a Roland Cube-30, funny: sooo much tone in such a little box
