• Guys, we've spent considerable money converting the Les Paul Forum to this new XenForo platform, and we have ongoing monthly operating expenses. THE "DONATIONS" TAB IS NOW WORKING, AND WE WOULD APPRECIATE ANY DONATIONS YOU CAN MAKE TO KEEP THE LES PAUL FORUM GOING! Thank you!


I play Lespauls,Telecasters and Martins.I'm a veteran player,for over 30 years.I have a modest gig history,64 live shows with 4 different bands.Some covers but mostly originals.Over 200 open mike/ jam shows.

I'm still quite comfortable improvising live,and play daily at home,for my personal enjoyment.I also enjoy playing solo acoustic covers,with meaningful lyrics. My vocals are ok,so i've been told(haha!). Sometimes i go out and play at open stage jams,if it's a host i know.And i play occasionally with friends that i know(always seems to be a drummer,lol!).I may change that and become a little more adventurous, as i have the itch at present.My playing has always been critically approved by my musician peers,and i play to support the band's sound...and try to add value to that.
