I've been playing guitar for 35 years. Played in a band in and after high school, tried to make a living, but that was when disco was big.... so playing live was not a success. Took some classical lessons for a while, then played on and off, mostly on but not a lot, for 20 years or so. A few years back, got back into it a lot, and started playing fingerstyle solo acoustic. I've writing, practicing, enjoying, just getting into it again. Now I'm ready to post some of my pieces, and hoping folks will enjoy them.
Do you play live?
I like to play for people, but haven't played at a paying gig for a very, very long time.
How, do you think, does the internet (or mp3) change the music industry?
It's taken away the artificial barriers created by marketing folks, and allows us all to find what we like. There's a ton of great music out there, all over the world, and the internet makes it easy to post your stuff, and have people find and enjoy it.
Would you sign a record contract with a major label?
Well, no ones knocking, and I have a full time job and a family - they're the most important thing in my life - so no.
Steve Howe, Tommy Emmanuel, Doyle Dykes, Eric Tingstad, James Taylor. Just about any acoustic guitar work, but just about any well played, interesting music.
Currently playing an Epiphone EL-00. I love it - a great little guitar for fingerpicking, inexpensive, and with a Tusq bridge, it sounds great.
