Guitar Master. Scot claims to have been playing and collecting guitars since “Hank Williams was a boy”. Primarily a self-taught musician, Scot has been playing for as long as he can remember.
His country experience comes right out of the honky-tonks and clubs in Colorado and Utah. He also admits to being in bands with names like “Space Ranger” and “The Teenage Commies from Mars”. Scot puts all of that experience and his unique picking style to work for The Lehousiana Boys.
On songs such as “Take Care of My Girl” his guitar work drives the song and provides its unique sound. On “Chicken Pickin’ Guitar Man”, which Scot wrote, it’s straight-out electric guitar from his old rock and roll days.
He maintains his own style even though his playing has been influenced by artists like the Eagles, Little Feat, Ry Cooder, and Lynyrd Skynyrd. Scot joined The Lehousiana Boys in February of 1997 and got the nickname, “Bad Hand” at his first concert with the band.
A couple of weeks before the show he broke the pinky on his fret hand and actually played with a splint on. He had to adjust by using only three fingers, but pulled it off like a veteran. The name “Bad Hand” stuck and it fits his countrified, southern rock playing style.
