How y'all doin? Greetings from the Heart of Dixie!
Hi everyone.This is EP from AL I received Vol 1 as a gift from someone who knew I was interested in the program. Since then, I completed Vol 2 and have started Vol 3. I'm excited to join the forum and I hope to get in on some great discussions on technique and also get a lot of answers on some of my key gaps in the program.
I'm primarily a guitarist. I grew up in a family of Bluegrass, Gospel, Country, and Rock musicians. I studied Jazz, Flamenco, and Classical guitar in addition to Vocal studies while pursuing my Degree in Music Composition in College. I've played in cover and original bands all over the place. I've shared the stage with some of the biggest names in music to side players that blow them all away.
I got really tired of being just the lead guitarist and being at the mercy of singers who may or may not show up to a gig (depending on their ego) and having them play half lit and ruin my reputation with club/bar owners because they can't get their junk together. So I decided to be in control of my destiny by getting my voice in the best shape possible. I had a strong foundation from school. I'm a baritone but I can hit a Db below the clef if needed and I sang a lot of tenor in larger ensembles.
Anyway, again, I'm stoked to be here!
