    I haven’t had much luck getting a video to load;but I would like to post this messsage.
    I’m looking for a rhythm guitarist,for a Jazz/Blues duo. A guy that’s at least 30 or older.
    This isn’t the usual romp from dive to dive. I’m taking respectable places. I need someone
    that will make a complete commitment.
