    Hey there. Been enjoying this board for a while now, thought I should pop in here with a proper intro.

    I am a 40-something singer-songwriter/looper musician.

    I started playing when I was 13, grew up on hair bands (Dokken/George Lynch was my hero), moved into grunge, heavy metal (learned every rhythm note of Master of Puppets/and Justice for all), played in bands in high school and beyond. Then spent a lot of time as a bedroom guitarist, doodling around here and there. Got into jambands a lot in my later years, mainly a big Phish fan.

    In the past five years I've come back out into the pubilc eye a bit around my area, working with looping and trying to write original stuff as well as finding interesting covers that I can mess around with. Having a ball playing gigs and jamming.

    In the past year I've been working on honing my tone. I play acoustic guitar but like to mess around with a lot of different sounds to create something unique. TGP has been a great resource for helping me find the right stuff to continue my journey. Go check out my reverbnation page in my sig to hear some of the stuff I've been working on. If you're in the area, come find me at a gig and tell me that you heard about it here. Rock on!

    Dennis

    Hello - I miss Pianos N Stuff in Blawnox, even though my commute there was diabolical. I assumed that any decent-sized city would have a similar well-stocked store with big name and boutique brands and a knowledgeable staff but I'm back in big-box mouth-breather retail hell now.
