I am a guitarist and songwriter, primarily in the hard-rock/metal genre. I have played in a number of bands and have performed at a variety of venues and functions. Recently, I've been increasingly involved with music recording and production.
My most recent project was Viridian - currently on indefinite hiatus.
On the side, I write music business commentary @ TheCyncialMusician.com - something which has surprisingly gained me more notoriety than my music. My point of view stems from my personal experience in music and the biz, plus my education as an economist. More often than not, I find myself pointing out holes in conventional MusBiz blogosphere wisdom, but I hope it helps provide other musicians a different perspective in these troubled times.
In the past, I have taught guitar and might do so again.
My gear, just for the heck of it:
Guitars - Gibson SG standard, Ibanez RG2550E Prestige
Amplification - 2 Marshall JCM900 half-stacks (a 4100 Dual Reverb and a 2100 SL-X)
Effects - Boss GT-10
