Me And My Guitars

Hello all, I'm DJ Bennett, 28 yrs old, from a little town in GA...I've been playing since 2000 or so. I have been out of the game for a bit as family life has taken priority over playing, but am hoping to get back to the woodshed and back in the game.

My current guitar "arsenal" is as follows:

Powerhouse strat (1st run) Standard Telecaster Parts guitar with two humbuckers and three single coils wired like a double neck Washburn Acoustic Electric

I run those through a zoom tube multi-effects pedal and into a Peavey Valveking 112

Musical Influences

I'm a big Zep fan, Page is the reason i started playing guitar, i wanted the brash raw zeppelin sound...my best friend started playing drums about the same time i started guitar, and zeppelin was the first material we ever worked on. After a bout w/ some serious classic rock prejudice i opened up to progressive and world music. I like country (old country, i dont really get into the whole pop country thing), love blues, and i've really gotten into jazz and fusion. When i jam w/ friends it usually becomes a rock jam, but i am trying to develop a jazzier style as well.

Musical Influences

  • Santana's at the top of the list, but my list of favs includes Jimmy Page, Hendrix, Clapton, Uli John roth
  • Alex Lifeson, Warren Hayes, Jimmy Herring, Al di Meola, John McLaughlin
  • Wes Montgomery, Derek Trucks, and any local people i get the chance to jam w/

Favorite Recordings

  • Led Zeppelin~Houses of the Holy, any 311, any Al di Meola
  • Rush~Moving Pictures, Project Z, Jimmy Page and the Black Crowes Live at the Greek
  • Derek Trucks~Live at the Georgia Theatre, Frampton Comes Alive
