What is unique or original about your approach to the guitar? My style is an amalgamation of 70s/80s rock and 90s country music. I strive to sound unique in the context of a song I write or cover. My approach to writing guitar music is to think like a vocalist and establish a melodic hook. Then by trial and error, discover the riffs and runs that enhance the song.

What’s the best thing about playing guitar The payoff of finding that "sweet spot" between the physical (touch, pick attack, vibrato) and the electrical (amp, pickups, pedals).

Why did you enter GPGS 2010? For a personal and professional challenge. Plus, I can't think of a better way to get my guitar instrumentals to the masses.Web N/A
