Just a Classic Rock lover......

What's up?

Welcome to Emily's page. To share a little bit with you about me... I absolutley love music, it is my passion. I am the walking encyclopedia on classic music (jazz, blues, rock etc.) particularly the people that are mentioned under my influences.I've been playing guitar for about 6 years now and absolutley love it. I own 5 guitars, a Gretsch Tennessee Rose, a Fender strat-60's reissue (which has become my labor of love-put Lindy Fralin Real 54's in it w/the baseplate of course, put stainless steel frets in it, love those! Put a higher tone capacitor in it and string saver saddles as well as 5 springs in the back...) So now it is as good as a american strat, a Fender Dobro, a Martin DR, and a Crafter acoustic. The amps that I currently own are a 1965 Super Reverb w/an EL34 mod (Sounds soooooo sweet!! More like a Marshall crunch and drive), and a Fender hot rod deluxe and a Fender hot rod Blues Jr. My favorite artists are, Derek Trucks/DTB, Robben Ford, Susan Tedeschi, Chick Corea and Return to Forever, John Coltrane, Miles Davis, Herbie Hancock, Led Zeppelin, The Allman Brothers Band, Jimi Hendrix, Chris Robinson and New Earth Mudd, Cream, CSN&Y, Allan Holldsworth, Pat Metheny, Cannonball Adderly, The Beatles, John Lennon, The Band, Bob Dylan, Bill Frisell, Steve Winwood, Bukka White, Son House, Stevie Wonder, Otis Redding, Ray Charles, Little Walter, Robert Johnson, Muddy Waters, Wes Montgomery, Tommy Tucker, Elmore James, Lowell Fulson, Janis Joplin, Phish, Rod Stewart, Howlin' Wolf, Tampa Red, Chet Atkins, and the list goes on........ Well that's pretty much everything there is to know about me ; ) "........Driving in my car, Smoking my Cigar, The only time I'm happy is when I play my guitar......." -Cream
