I mostly play effects-flooded post-rock noise on electric guitar in the band Primeval Blue. I also have my solo acoustic project Flooding Rivers playing folk and Delta blues, mostly on an open G-tuned resonator, sometimes with harmonica accompaniment. I also play piano and sing a bit. WLTM someone with similar interests who also enjoys sunsets and long walks in the park.
