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)
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
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.
- 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/
- 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
