What instrument(s) do you play? Guitar.

Do you sing? Yes

Do you write songs? Not for a long time

Who taught you how to play? I'm self taught, though I went for piano lessons as a kid.

Do you play professionally? Have you? I was full time for around 15 years. I do one regular gig per month now, aptly named Get Aff.

Are you currently in a band? Tell us about it. Yes, see above. We have Dom on bass, upright bass and acoustic, and he's a good singer, no harmony. Davy on guitar (electric and acoustic), bass and vocals, with a bit of harmony. Myself on electric guitar and vocals, I'm the main harmony singer. Harvey on lap slide - he's the most accomplished musician amongst us. No vocals. And last but not least, Stuart on acoustic guitar and vocals, no harmony. We don't rehearse and frequently have guests sitting in with us, either for the whole gig, or along with us and often have guests up while we are on a break.

What are your strengths? I can solo over anything other than jazz progressions and can harmonise on the fly.

Weaknesses? I can't play jazz, it's like a foreign language. I have a reasonable vocal range, but wish I could go higher so's I could sing second and third part harmonies.
