30 Years of a Life Sentence of Guitar!!

I've been playing guitar since the age of 13,Im 45 now. Played my 1st bar gig at 15. I've covered top 40,country,new wave,oldies,classic rock and blues. Currently I've been playing more extended jam type stuff ala Gov't Mule. I've had the good fortune to have been able to meet Warren Haynes and talk guitar with him a couple of times and this has done alot to inspire me. I often say "other people have boats & snowmobiles, I have guitars.

Emotion & Heart is what it's all about!!

Lets talk and maybe get together and jam. Currently I'm playing in a 3pc "Power Trio" called "Blue Rhythm" Blues/Jam Rock & Classic Rock but not the stuff everybody else plays..stuff, when you hear it you'd say, "That's really cool!!" We play for the love of playing NOT for our living. If you do the same let me hear from you.
