Bio

Guitar player, acoustic and electric. Rock, Blues, Folk/Americana, Bluegrass - love it all. Music first took control of my soul during the British Invasion so I feel very fortunate to have experienced, first-hand, the wonderful music of my generation. Can't seem to shake the desire (ok, 'obsession') to play music. On the other hand, I've never really tried. :)

I've played guitar since an early age, but don't consider myself to be particularly proficient. My rhythm playing is decent enough, and I can do lead fills and blues licks adequately, but I'm never going to be 'shredding'. I'm not formally trained, but have played with some pretty good folks in the past. Mostly, I've been a 'living room picker', but also have some experience in a band setting.

I'm also fortunate in another sense - I have a fine collection of instruments I've acquired over the years. They include a Taylor 324CE, a Martin D-28, a Fender Stratocaster, Telecaster and an Epiphone Casino. Currently my amp is a Fender Mustang III. I've also dabbled with the mandolin and 5 string banjo, but haven't pulled them out in quite a while. I hope to have more time for these when I'm able to retire from my real job, the one that pays the bills.

On a personal note, I have a wonderful wife, 2 grown kids, 2 grown step kids and 3 grandchildren (although I'm MUCH too young to be a grandpa).

Looking forward to having fun with the folks here!
