What instrument(s) do you play?

Guitar, bass, mando and sing a bit.

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?

I'm a 9 on the guitar, less so on the others. Solo and love to play rhythm.

Who are your favorite country artists and favorite country songs?

Hank, Buck, Merle, Cash and just about most of their genre and time. I prefer the classic country of the 40's and 50's with a good dose of Bakersfield of the 60's. Too many tunes to mention, but particularly fond of Hank's "I Can't Help If I'm Still in Love with You", "Weary Blues", "Please Don't Love Me" and Buck's "Together Again" and "Excuse Me, I Think I've Got a Heartache." Really like the songs of Mike Stinson and Paul Burch too.

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

Yes and yes. I can sing, but I wouldn't say I'm a "singer" per se. Nothing but a good whiskey couldn't make sound better.

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

Love 'em all but like the blues/rockabilly feel a la Wayne Hancock and Bakersfield twang.
