In his 11 years as a pro studio musician he has done jazz, country, hip-hop, heavy metal, folk, etc. He’s played acoustic 6-string, 12-string, electrics of all kinds, classical guitars, and 4- and 5-string basses. He can play with a pick, fingerstyle, slide guitar, etc. and he’s equally comfortable with lots of effects or none at all.
