I've always been keyed into music... As a kid I used to play a game where I'd name the song before the singer came in. I started playing guitar back in the late 70's... not sure of the year,, but I remember Foreigner's Hot Blooded and 38 Special's Rockin' Into The Night were current songs on the radio. Led Zeppelin had a magic for me. There was no formula, just a bunch of different ideas that made me want to play the guitar. The 80's hit and I couldn't see myself doing anything other than play guitar for a living. Had a band, played with other musicians just for our entertainment, etc. Used to record on one of those old cassette tape 4-track recorders. A friend of mine and I used to spend all of our time doing something musical (we jammed, wrote new songs, recorded covers of songs we did/didn't like with some lyrics that the original artist would probably sue us for) I never really did much of anything, but the 80's guitar-based music scene left me in the dust... Threw in the towel and stopped playing for 10+ years. Then I bought a Jackson RR guitar (that I'd wanted for 20+ years) and I haven't stopped playing since. At this point I don't know if I have a style. I hope my playing does, but not my compositions. Oh well, listen and enjoy. I am working on a CD project. When that becomes available I will let you know and possibly post clips here.
