I started playing a Gibson B45 12-string guitar in the 60's up in the Northeast USA...Boston, Cape Code, Albany, my home town, and New York City, where I was born. Real life intruded, and, yada-yada-yada, here we are in the 21st century down South in Greenville, South Carolina. I still play that Gibson 12-string, now a well-worn instrument, and also have some newer puppies - 2 Taylor 12-strings. Listen to them on I hope you enjoy my music. Some are new compositions, some are arrangements of old tunes. Constructing forms of sounds that go together perhaps in ways that no other music before is difficult, but the results are often rewarding. I work on some pieces for years before I'm happy with them. For example, Wildwood Flower is one of the first tunes that a 'folkie' finds when first learning the guitar. But just recently I picked it up again and added a little interlude. Candyman is another fingerpicker's delight. I've been playing it for 40 years, gradually building it up from several versions and adding some spicey new additions. Always happy to hear how you like the tunes, so email me or post to the message board if you get the urge. Happy listening! P.S. If you are a 12-string player, check out my 12-string diary at . I try to share some of my adventures in recording, playing, and learning about this great instrument. Also join me at my.soundclick page
