With the Lord as my guide,and the love of family and friends I am able to enjoy my passion of music.
I started playing at 16 fooled around for 13 years jamming here and there.
I played in a band called Feel for 11 Years which became voodoo monkey dust after the departure of my good friend and guitar guru john( Feel on macjams)
I played in that band for 2 Years until I decided to throw in the towel.
Now I'm a MacJammer but still hope to form a band in the future.I am a self taught guitar player but learned from the best players in the world threw their musical recordings and from friends.
my musical influences are Jimmy Page,Stevie Ray Vaughn,John Luper,Robin Trower,Angus Young,Eddie Van Halen,Randy Rhoads,Eric Clapton,Jimi Hendrix,Alex lifeson,Howlin Wolff,Hubert Sumlin and countless others. I am also listening to more country music(New Artist:Garth Brooks,Toby Keith,Brad Paisley,Blake Shelton,Jason Aldean and others.Old Artist:Merle Haggard,Lefty frizzel,and all the rest).as well as christian rock: Third day,Kutless,Skillet just to name a few.I am constantly putting ideas down on my computer but due to time,lack of interest(crazy right!),or just plain brain block i can't seem to finish them.I am constantly learning something new on guitar and trying to learn other instruments as well.I am finally trying to learn the notes and scales on guitar as well as reading and understanding musical notes on paper so i can be a better player.(a work in progress)
I am very grateful to GOD for giving me the talent of music and hope I can inspire others with my songs.
