Musical Inspiration

I am not musically inclined, maybe except playing the violin in 4th grade.  Because of this, I leave the work to those more inclined, and my sister who is the front woman of Jimmy and the Hat Tricks.  They’re on the local bar scene.  Check them out at

Anyway, here it is.  My list of go to jams for long car rides, working out in the garage, soloing ice climbs, and plain hanging around.  Try some of this.  Most of it is loud heavy metal and hard modern rock.  Some classic alternative. Enjoy
