Guitarist (and some vocals - can pick up a harmony/ or required BVs immediately) 50s, very experienced. Styles: R&B, Soul, (inc. Stax, Chess, Tamla), meaningful rock, jazz, blues, slide and interpretations of anything else.

Incredibly fast learner and have an encyclopaedic knowledge and love of music from (most) genres over the past 1,000 years, although would tend to stick with playing the good stuff (as described above) from any of the past 40-50.

I have pro equipment to suit most venues (within reason), plus PA and good mics.

Influenced by many, some from the past, others recent, some obvious, a few not so well known. An original player nonetheless, flexible and versatile with an ability to be able to know where to place those meaningful complimentary fills.

Not into stilted replicating but I certainly have ‘the feel’. Essentially I’m more into putting an edge into songs without being overly self-indulgent but if anyone wants a series of meaningful solos, then so be it, and it will be from the heart rather than through copying the usual culprits.....and even then.....

I have played in numerous outfits over many decades, sometimes as band leader, as a member, or a dep and am easy to get along with – yes I love humour and the fun of it all. Despite my advancing years, I still am in good nick.

Please no time wasters like the last lot, a mediocre pop covers band who could not be bothered to tell me that they had since engaged a permanent guitarist. Subsequent to agreeing 3 gig dates with these unprofessionals, I was offered and had to turn down a really high profile blues gig on a date I had agreed with them, only to find I was no longer required by the popsters and ended up doing neither.
