I started playing gigs in 1968, It may have been only junior high school dances but at the time, it was electrifying. Four short years earlier In 1964, I remember watching "The Ed Sullivan Show" and seeing the Beatles perform live. They pretty much jump started my interest in music, Long hair, guitars and Beatle boots, cool. I have always enjoyed good harmony parts and George's slide work has always inspired me. Now it's all about writing and recording and being a part of Sound Cloud.
Three of my fav producers would be Jeff Lynne, Mark Hudson and of course Sir George Martin. As far as guitar players, great hooks Keith Richards, best tone Eric Clapton, best feel SRV! Best slide guitar George Harrison, Sonny Landreth and Ry Cooder. Most creative exploration Eric Johnson. The most original and inspiring Mr. Jeff Beck, he is amazing.
Beatles, Cream, Jeff Beck, Jimmy Hendrix, Steve Windwood, Roy Orbison,Tom Petty Todd Rundgren, The Yardbirds, Lacerne Dixon, John Mayall & the Bluesbreakers, Spencer Davis Group, The Who, Rolling Stones, SRV, Wings, Sparks, T-Rex, The Doors, Led Zeppelin, ELO, Steely Dan, Boyce & Hart, The Who, Rory Gallagher, Taste, Grinn, The Nazz CSN&Y.

Such great production. Wonderful voice
Wonderful playing and beautiful production Jeff.
@brianpeters-3: Thanks Brian, production has been like learning a new instrument for me over the last 5 years. I spent time on it now, as I didn't when I first strarted recording. I have fun with it trying to find the balance of all the tracks and what works best for the song. Cheers
Another beauty. I like the tremolo on the guitar. Backing vocals fit very well.
