2. Where can I get the TAB to your cover songs?
This is a question I get all the time. The first answer is I actually never transcribed any of them, so I simply don't have them. The longer answer is that even if I did have them, I don't have the rights to distribute sheet music to any cover songs or music I don't own the rights to, and this includes giving them away for free. I'm aware that other people do this freely, but I'm personally just not comfortable with it. I hope to soon find a solution to offer this in the future.
3. What gear do you use?
I’m not really the biggest gear head in the world and it’s always changing and evolving, but my main guitar right now is a Stonebridge 32OSM equipped with a K+K Trinity system and DiMarzio Black Angel. My main electric guitar is an Ernie Ball Music Man Silhouette Special.
Other than that, a BOSS TU-2, TC Electronics Hall Of Fame Reverb and an AER Domino II amp and use a variety of Elixir or Wyres Strings – usually Phosphor Bronze lights or custom lights.
4. I'm thinking of getting some lessons with you but I'm a little nervous. I haven't had lessons in a long time and I'm worried maybe I'm not good enough. Any advice?
First of all, it's totally natural to feel apprehensive when trying something new, but I'm not a harsh critic or anything like that. My job is to help you become the best you can be. We're just a couple of music-loving guitar players hanging out, talking, playing and learning some new things. All the teaching-related information can be found here, but if you have a specific question, shoot me an email.
5. When are you going to come to [my city]?
Good question. I'm not a big performer/touring guy...at ALL. The simple fact is I have a young family and am needed more at home. To be completely honest, I'm really more of a songwriter and producer than a performer. Also, when I'm not playing music, I'm playing Dad! Having said that, if anything ever changes you will find the information here on my site and on my Facebook page etc. If you're on my mailing list, you'll never miss a beat!
