I borrowed a guitar from my cousin when I was nine years old after watching the Monkees on TV.   I took a few lessons, and within a year I was in my first rock 'n' roll band.  

My early influences included Jimmy Page, Jimmy McCarty, Jimi Hendrix, and Jeff Beck.  Soon, I discovered Steely Dan and their vast use of many session guitarists, and through Steely Dan, I became aware of Larry Carlton.  Larry opened up a whole new approach to guitar for me.  From there I ventured into Jazz and listened to  Miles Davis, Robben Ford, Pat Metheny, the Yellowjackets, John Scofield, Mike Stern, and others.

A few of my many influences, and, I'm not afraid to quote them in my playing are, Eric JohnsonRobben Ford, Pat Metheny, Carlos Santana and Jeff Beck. However, there are guys that, while I'm soloing, come to mind.  I often go for that Eric Clapton 'Crossroads' tone, or the grittiness of David Grissom when I'm reaching for something.  

I owe all of who I am as a guitar player to everyone I've listened to or played with.  You can learn from everything and everyone, and I thank you all for your inspiration.
