I've been playing for 20 years +/-, and have a few different guitars. My main acoustic is semi-retired and stays home for recording purposes (have had it since I was 16). I play for 2 hours at least 3-4 times a week.

What instrument(s) do you play?

Acoustic / acoustic electric guitar, vocals. Have a 100 watt Marshall acoustic amp for the Martin OOOxe in the picture.

How would you rate your talent-skill level on your main instrument on a scale from 1 to 10? Are you a soloist or just rhythm?

Mostly rhythm, and I would say about an 8 or 9 on guitar, same with vocals. Love doing harmonies.

Who are your favorite country artists and favorite country songs?

Oh Lord... I have to pick? Cash, Haggard, Marty Stuart, Dwight, Gillian Welch/Dave Rawlings, Buddy Miller, Emmylou Harris, Alison Krauss, Rodney Crowell, Dixie Chicks, etc. Favorite songs: I Still Miss Someone, I'll Fly Away, Sin City...

Can you sing lead and are you willing to lead the jam on tunes?

Yes, and yes if it is something I know...

What country style do you like playing most? (blues, 2-step, swing, folk,, twang, bluegrass, etc.). Which don't you like playing?

bluegrass, blues, twang, folk -- I'll play/sing anything if I think I have something to lend.

What Aurora is saying about this Meetup Group

Best darn good time I've had playing in years, and Jay is an excellent coordinator. Kept ua on track, organizes the solos (no one "stepped" on anyone else) and everyone enjoy themselves.

    Got your message. No big deal. Happens to me a lot as well (I work a full and a part time job). Tomorrow won't work for me. Sounds like fun though. But I still want to learn to salsa!

    So, have you come up with some dates for bowling? I ask because I am planning my ENTIRE summer. There are outdoor movies, concerts and Shakespeare in the park. But I definitely want to do the bowling. I don't do it often but it's a fun event where people can also talk. Also, I'm from Wisconsin - it's the state sport.
