My guitar playing and I were seperated for many years. Well, we got back together about 3 years ago and are going strong. I'm a solo acoustic guitar player/singer. When I play live, I play 90% classic rock covers. I've always been impressed by my guitar hero's getting in front of crowds with nothing but their guitar and their voice. Don't get me wrong,,, I love the full sound of a band. This is just the direction I'm choosing to go for now. It was a little rough performing in front of people at first, but now I can't get enough. My biggest influances are, just to name a few, Neil young, Stephen Stills, George Harrison, Tom Petty, John Hiatt, Bob Dylan, Jimi Hendrix, Eddie Vedder, Lenny Kravitz, David Gimour, Eric Clapton, Greg Allman, Kieth Richards, Pete Townshend, Jimmy Page, and I could go on and on, but you get the idea.
