He has played with the Alan White band, Eagles and Linda Ronstadt cover bands, and many other groups, as well as performing solo, often playing original compositions.

Karl has been described as having a sense of where and how his instrument can fill a wide range of roles in a song.

To accomplish this, he uses creative techniques to produce interesting background textures, along with alternate tunings, echoes, wahs, and other effects.
