I have always had a profound love of music and cannot remember a time when melodies weren't fluttering through my head. I initially purchased a guitar due to the fact that I knew this person who was a real asshole and played the guitar. I figured if that asshole could play the guitar, so could I...;-)

I like to play all types of music. My forte is Bebop. My guitar experience has included private tutoring with Joe Marino, Tom Floyd and Vince Lewis. I cannot heap enough praise on the aforementioned. It is impossible to measure just how much their guidance influenced my playing. Their generosity in sharing their knowledge helped me reach a new level with every lesson. Of course, I had to pay for the lessons...;-)

I in turn, began tutoring when I felt my level of knowledge would be of some benefit to individuals who wanted to learn the guitar and the theory behind music. Oh yeah, I wanted to make money also. ;-) I initially played in rock bands with friends and eventually "graduated" to society club dates. Start spreading the news.....
