My major instrument is classical guitar. My minor is in both classical and jazz piano. I also play electric and acoustic guitar in rock, blues, funk, folk, jazz, metal, alternative, ska, and grunge styles. So far, I have four semesters of classical guitar ensemble and three semesters of chorus. I played "by ear" before I could read musical notation and have some years of improvisational experience in instrumental three and four piece bands. I "riff" write in songs. I am not a lyricist, yet. I tend to play along with recorded music when I'm not playing in a band.
