What style of music do you prefer to play? (eg. modern rock, jazz, country, etc.)

(Besides songs with easy chords?) Country, folk, bluegrass, light rock, classic oldies...oh, and I'm now learning some out, BB King! (2010 update: BB ain't got nothing to worry about.)

Who are some of your favourite musical influences?

Oh, so many...Lucinda Williams, Dwight Yoakam, Eagles, Tom Petty, Patty Loveless, Rhonda Vincent, Thea Gilmore, Bruce, Beatles. Jeffery Focault, and Slaid Cleaves are my two new finds that I'm in love with at the moment, Great Big Sea!

Do you sing?

So I've been told.

What instruments do you play?

Guitar...but this is questionable. (As of October I'm taking actual remains to be seen if there will be improvement. (2011 update: Yes, there has been some improvement...unfortunately, there needs to be A LOT more!)

How long have you been making music?

Well, me making music is probably up for subjection, but I sure try! I've been tinkering with the guitar off and on for a bit, but now I'm getting serious....really. :-) (2010 update: Ditto.) (2011 update: Ditto, again.)


Right brained, creative person who likes to flail on the guitar. (that's "flail," not "fail," BTW)
