Grew up with country music. Although country music is my first love, i love to play all sorts of styles.
I am a sucker for ballads :-)
To name just a few artists who influenced my style of playing and singing
Russel Smith and the Amazing Rhythm Aces
Merle Haggard, Willy Nelson and other Outlaws
Eric Clapton in his early years
one of the things I never forget is playing at a countryshow with my band. As a last song we played an Eddy Rabitt song called Do you right tonight. What we didn't know was that the man himself was listening backstage. When we finished he came and meet us...was really awesome. BTW.. he said we did the song right :-)
Too many :)
My first instrument was a six string accoustic guitar with only 3 strings. Played on 3 strings for quite a while. That's why i can dream the blues scales.
Can't remember what happened to that guitar.
Right now i use an accoustic Harley Benton guitar, a USA Fender stratocaster and a Fender mustang floorboard.
These are all wired on a Soundcraft UI 12 digital Mixer.
