    Hey Joe... your tunes are really great! Some nice vintage sounds (and a good variety of them as well). I'm inspired to do some more myself. Thanks, and keep "em coming...

Bio: Joe's music is rather eclectic - you'll hear some surf rock, psychedelic, spaghetti Western, swamp rock and some that have no clear genre. He has been playing guitar since he was 14, but never had any lessons - other than what he could glean from Mel Bay and Alfred's Basic Guitar books.
