It has been my privilege to play guitar on a number of recordings. Am I a great guitarist? Heck no, but the guys I've been privileged to play with are great songwriters and musicians. Here are three sample tunes for your listening pleasure:
King George Is Back (studio, mp3)

All Along the Watchtower (jam, wma file)
The classic Dylan tune, re-worked in a typically wild beer-fueled Bunker jam. Vocals by Richard Mitchell, first lead guitar, Gayland Baker, bass guitar, Steve Toma, rhythm guitar and second lead, me. My first lead starts at 1:30, the second at 2:55.
Under My Thumb (jam, wma file) The Stones never had it so good. Vocals by Richard Mitchell, first lead guitar, Gayland Baker, keyboards, Steve Toma, rhythm guitar and second lead, me. Gayland rips some tasty leads; my little solo pops up at 3:28.
