Started playing in 1993
Improvisation, play by ear, play by tab, FTP virtual
I have been playing in function bands and doing local session work for the last 15 years. I believe my strengths are with my ability to change playing styles seamlessly, from sweep picking neo classical shredding to light, clean and dynamic pentatonics. Many guitarists can do many styles to a good level but I believe my playing to be amongst the highest standards in many styles.
