What instrument do you play and how long have you been playing, are you a singer?

Guitar, on and off for 15 years but never consistently enough to get good. I have always just played along to records and still consider myself an advanced beginner. Believe me, you don't want to hear me sing.

Do you view yourself as a mentor or one who will benefit more from practicing with others?

I expect to be the student and benefit greatly from playing with other blues lovers.

How can this Meetup group best benefit you personally? What most would you like to see occur at Meetups to ensure this is a great experience?

Make new friends and maybe work out my musical dreams. Progress as a musician by playing with others for the first time. I hope everybody is tolerant of my inexperience.

How long have you been listening to blues music? What Blues songs would you most like to play?

I grew up listening to the Stones, Cream, Hendrix and Led Zeppelin when it was all new music, so 45 years or so. I went to high school with George Thorogood who led me to John Lee Hooker and Elmore James. Later on I went back to the roots and discovered the Fathers; Chuck Berry, Robert Johnson, Howlin Wolf, BB and Albert King. I will enjoy playing most anything based on the blues.

Do you get along well with others? What will you do to ensure that this is the best Meetup Group?

I am a child of the 60's and wish peace and love for everybody. Apologies for the photo, been watching too many Joe Bonamassa DVD's lately.


Playing with a band will fullfill a goal I've had for a long time.
