Thirty-five years after I learned how to strum three chords, I decided maybe it was time to try to learn how to play the guitar, so that's where I am. I won't live long enough to do it properly, but maybe I'll get a little better before I shuffle off.

I'm trying to learn fingerstyle and classical stuff, mostly, and I do it on a couple classical (nylon string) guitars.
Why this name?
Since it's just me, I figured my name was good enough. And no, I'm not the former lead singer for Journey.
Do you play live?
Outside Portland, Oregon. God's country.
How, do you think, does the internet (or mp3) change the music industry?
It's too soon to see how it will finally shake out, but if you are looking for how much it's already changed things, one word:
iPod ...
Would you sign a record contract with a major label?
Not likely to ever come up in my case ...
Your influences?
All over the map -- blues, rock, classical, country, jazz, folk. Most of the stuff I write would be either blues or folk; most of what I cover is rock -- Beatles are big on my list -- with a few classical tunes upon which I am working.
Anything else...?
Musically, I'm not very adept. I believe I have a way with words, though, since that's how I make my living, as a fiction writer.
