I consider myself an average picker and after turning music into a job for years I lost my love of playing and I hung it up. A friend coaxed me into playing again by sending me a new Les Paul and a New American Telecaster in order to get me interested in playing music again. So after several decades of not picking up a guitar I began playing again and I enjoy it now. I also started building custom Strats for a hobby.

Both good guitar players and not so good guitar players. Even a mediocre guitar picker can come up with a riff from time to time that will impress me. The beauty of music is that it is not a contest between musicians. All music being subject to the interpretation of the listener insures that there is no best guitar player. Therefore who's the best guitar player polls suck.

I record with various musicians but mostly musicians I have jammed or gigged with on occasion. If I like a song I might even ask to play on it or arrange it. I record on a DAW for the fun of it. The Siouxland Musical History Museum has uploaded some of my recordings. If curious Google
