Music

I enjoy playing, practicing, and recording music. Over the years I've played in a few bands and also used to play a lot of solo gigs. In more recent years I don't get out that much, but occasionally I do go out to local open mike nights. Mostly I practice at home trying to learn piano after many years of focusing mainly on guitar.

The Reality Salad Band

The Reality Salad Band was put together for my recording projects while I was attending MTSU and evolved into a live band based on the recordings. We played in the area from 1991 to late 1994.

Sloppy Joe Blues

For long time I was really into old time acoustic country blues and ragtime. My favorites guitarists in these old styles are Big Bill Broonzy, Blind Boy Fuller, Skip James, Robert Johnson, Blind Blake, Mississippi Fred McDowell, and Bukka White. I'm glad I captured these videos of my solo performances because some of these songs I can no longer play due to lack of practice since I'm more focused on piano practice these days.
