Bio:
Working on a new website: http://www.wix.com/b0rn2w0rsh1p/b0rn2w0rsh1p

Part of the house band for a Christian Nightclub. Someone made a video with an iPhone and posted it on YouTube... Check it out! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jnokriyzHz4

I started playing for my Lord in 1992, ran the church's sound board from '96-'99, taught myself some scales about '98 and have added "Melody Guitar" to my style. Sat in for the usual bass player a few times between '05 and '07 and moved to Wyoming Thanksgiving of '07. Started playing guitar here, but when we got a new Worship leader, his brother played a lot better than me, so I picked up the bass. Started on a Mexican Fender Precision, but wanted that low D, and could only get a borrowed 6-string Yamaha (hence my signature, 6 string guitar to 6 string bass). Looking for a Guild 5 string bass, let me know if you want to donate yours.

I originally picked up a guitar in the 70's, garage band played Alice Cooper, Kiss, Mott the Hoople, wore platform shoes, played one gig for the drummer's parents party. Never had a chance to take lessons, but knew almost all the chords - so I considered myself a rhythm guitarist. Got my first "professional" guitar in '73, a Guild S-90 that I souped up to S-100 electronics. Managed to collect an S-200, S-300, S-274 and F-4CE. I have 2 Madiera guitars (70's budget Guild) an A-10 Acoustic and short scale bass that looks like my S-90/100. I now have 3 DeArmonds (00's budget Guild) a rubber-band bass, M-63 (les-paul-ish) and tele looking project with a broken headstock (this will become steinberger-ish project). I also have 3 other no-name projects, two for Baritone 6 strings and a true stereo electric with piezo transducer (a-la parker fly). I've also collected a real Fender/Rhodes suitcase piano, and my only amp is a little Vox 15 watt. I have a Behringer V-amp, Boss Overdrive, Compressor, and Volume Pedal.

I work for the school district here, so I have a MacBook Pro for my digital studio. I haven't started recording anything new yet, but that's what I'll use. I also have no interface, so I'll be connecting directly into the stereo line-in for now. More recording info as I actually do it. I've recorded hours and hours of Praise and Worship since about 2002 or '03, first using a portable Sony digital mini-disk recorder, then two versions of Creative MP3 players that have Line-in ports. My "Live" mics were built by me from Radio Shack parts and internet plans - but you'd be amazed at how they sound. I don't know the ramification of posting any of this music, since it's copyrighted music and at least two of the Worship leaders are copyrighted musicians - but if you've read this far, you can email me if you'd like to hear some of it.

Happily married to my soul mate, I just wish we would have met 35 years ago. We both have 16 year old sons - right now neither one lives with us, and her 27 year old lives in New Mexico - he's made us grand-parents 3 times over. Kim writes poetry and lyrics as well as the melody lines and sings in church - I pray that I'll be able to post one or two of our songs in the future as well.

No longer in Casper, Wyoming - or Ft Myers, Florida where most of these original posts were recorded.

Music Background I hate to say how long I've plunked on a guitar. Never had a lesson, all I've learned was from elementary school and those little boxes with dots in music books. Remember seeing a scale shape in an instruction book and I've been using that to play melody guitar for the last 10 years. I play Contemporary Christian Music in church and have played Spiritual Songs that I call Soaking music. This starts as a song that we may have practiced and then morphs into several minutes of free-form music. (hard to explain if you haven't experienced it!)
Music Skills Started out as Rhythm Guitarist, picked up some simple scales and enjoy playing Melody Guitar. Necessity has me playing Bass, 4, 5 and now 6 string. Baritone guitar projects are in the works - but that'll be like a regular guitar only tuned a 3rd or a 5th lower.
Music Hardware Mostly Guild guitars or the derivatives (Madeira, Burnside and DeArmond), Vox VR15 15 watt tube amp, Behringer V-amp, Boss MetalZone MT-2, Boss Overdrive/Distortion OS-2, Nady Excite Bass Exciter & Limiter, Alesis Compressor, DOD Flanger 640, Volume Pedal
Music Software Nothing I payed for - GarageBand and Audacity. ~*~ Banner Photo: Casper Mountain - looking South East over Casper WY
