I'm a thirtysomething rock guitarist in Albuquerque, NM. I've been playing since my teens, and have cut my teeth on a huge number of both original and cover bands. I tend to favor Gibson and G&L guitars, Budda amps and effects, and Boss effects. I'm big on Blue Steel strings and Jim Dunlop Jazz III picks...and piles of rich, warm gain from tubes and great wood!
