  • How did you start playing, and what has your journey looked like so far? I've been playing guitar since 8th grade when I discovered a guitar is much cooler on a date than a sax.  I took about a year of beginner lessons and have learned by ear and watching others ever since.  I am currently 57 years old and considered myself pretty much mediocre.  I don't know anything about music theory and have found when I tried to learn lead that my thought processes got in the way.  I love fingerstyle picking. James Taylor, Dan Fogleberg, Randy Stonehill, Wes King are some of my favorite guitarists.    
  • If we could wave a magic wand, what would you LOVE to be able to do on guitar?  I'd love to play as smooth and with confidence as the above mentioned guitarists.
  • What does your ultimate dream look like?  I'm pretty much a hack.  I'd like to play well enough to do justice to the songs I love to and would love to play.  I don't aspire to be on the big stage but would love to be good enough to play coffee shops and small venues.

I think you will find that you can't practice to much but practice will get you there. I've been playing for over 50 years and I still practice all the time to get better and faster and smoother. If it is in you nothing can get in your way. Sometimes I walk away cause i can't find the key, but i return the next day are so and go back at it.     How do you think Doctors get better?They work at a Medical Practice.

Pick on
