Hi everybody, I've been impressed with this forum since stumbling across it a few months ago. So I've finally decided to throw my hat into the ring and join the community! Smile

Quick bio: I'm 35 and play jazz/funk guitar, though I also am into hip-hop and some DJ/electronic music. Been studying jazz a long time, and have a degree from Berklee. Nowadays I split my time between teaching guitar, home recording and occasional gigging. For the past few years I've actually taken a bit of a break from jazz and gigging, and have been focused more on recording and technology. But for whatever/various reasons I felt this year I needed to get back to guitar, and have been doing so. It feels great - and finding this forum has helped!

As for influences, I just discovered Rosenwinkel this year and am hooked. He is the voice for modern jazz guitar IMO. I'm also really digging Jonathan Kreisberg, who I recently came across. As for the "old guard", hands-down John Scofield is my favorite guitarist, along with Frisell. And while not "jazz" per se, Jimi will always be the benchmark in my book.

While I can be quite opinionated at times, I always strive to maintain a balance. (I'm a true Libra!) So I'm looking forward to chatting with you all...
cheers
JAMES
