I am passionate about improvisation in all styles of music.
This is my love, my joy, my high in life. I get the most
satisfaction from this aspect of my live performances. The
creativity experienced, especially when I’m “on,” is
something I don’t experience in normal everyday life.
I had been playing the guitar for a couple of years as kid
and was just starting to listen to Santana, Johnny Winter,
Led Zeppelin and The Allman Brothers when one of my friends
mentioned that the guitarists were making their solos up on
the spot. That just floored me, I couldn’t believe it! I
knew right then and there that I had to be able to do that
too; thus starting my lifelong quest to perfect the art of
improvisation on the guitar.
Beginning with garage/basement bands, my friends and I got
together and jammed for hours at a time on modal one chord
jams, simple progressions and blues
