Play classical, rock, blues, metal, spanish, slide, folk...

On stage usually use Ibanez (7 string RG7321 and Joe Satriani signature models), or a 1989 Charvel Predator with a Dimebucker pickup through a Kemper Profiler and a DigiTech Whammy, sometimes with a CryBaby. For the songs requiring fire I use a 7-string BC Rich Warlock with pyro attachments!

Generally DI'ed straight into the venue PA or through Laney 4x10s - the Kemper is happy either way!
