What do you hope to gain from this meetup?

Not sure... opportunity to meet new people, play some music maybe.

What are your goals as a musician?

I have a career and music isn't it. It's a hobby, although a fairly serious one. I'd love to be someone's support player.

Which instruments do you play?

I am primarily an acoustic guitarist, good with flatpick and exploring hybrid (pick/fingers), and I do a lot of carrying bass notes over which I play up the neck. I can also play electric guitar and mess around on electric bass. I have a reasonable voice with a fairly broad range (um, about an octave below middle C to the A above middle C, more or less), but would benefit from singing with others more. I have a pretty good working knowledge of harmony, scales and odd time. Not as much as someone with five years of jazz lessons, but pretty solid.

Which styles of music do you play/write?

Singer/songwriter, jazz, folk, progressive rock, blues, soul in some odd mixture. Non-exclusive list of players I sound like, to varying degrees: John McLaughlin, John Etheridge, Robert Fripp, Andy Summers, Richard Thompson, Alex Lifeson, Paul Weller, all the guys who played in Steely Dan, Joni Mitchell.

Where can we hear some of your stuff? has some demos and so on.
