My musical intersts

I'm mainly into rock and blues but am always open to other areas. I'm not much into new blues [which does not count when BB puts out new work...i'm talkin this new age blues stuff], but i give it all a chance. I like delta blues alot and any down and gritty sounding blues, new or old.

Son House, Robert Johnson, Muddy Waters, SRV, James Cotton [i play some harp too], and many others i site as influences and musical heroes. Some old rockers like Hendrix and new ones like Billy Corgan and James Iha also heavily influence my playing and dwell in my speakers.

Acoustics:
Ibanez PF5MS, blue [the party guitar]
Oscar Schmit [Washburns "Epiphone"] 12 string
