Band/artist history
It has been uphill all the way with pain and slow traveling. I don't play with bands and can't say I would want to due to the vagaries of life and the human condition.
Have you performed in front of an audience?
Live, seldom. Can't say I like playing live. Been there done that. My dog Georgy is my best fan. Played at the Smithsonian once or twice. Watched the Thelonius Monk jazz guitar contest years ago.
Your musical influences
My dad taught me all he knows about the guitar. Maybe that's my problem?
What equipment do you use?
I use a Heritage Golden eagle arch top and a digital fostex recorder. My tennis racquet is a Babolet aerodrive.
Anything else?
I like to create tunes and variations. I took the Jazz masters class by Oliver Gannon. I also enjoy bluegrass flatpicking and contests. I am in the Virginia Tech Economics program with a fellowship for a Phd. Should finish in 2009ish.
