I've been playing guitar for 26 years, since I was 13. I used to play in several bands around Madison; some of them were Showdown, Judge Baxter, and Interface. Lived up north in Spooner for ten years running my own studio and doing a lot of solo work including a few cd's of my own.
For the Gear heads...
I have several amps I use in the studio, but my main amp is a BadCat. I have a Strat, a Les Paul, and a US Masters guitar, with various effects.
