ABOUT

Started playing guitar, mostly fingerpicking, in college. Grew up playing accordion, but don't do that much now. Have played electric bass guitar at church for over 20 years, but only do that once or twice a month now and occasionally play acoustic guitar at church. Have had some guitar lessons over the years, but really started studying more about a year ago when I was asked to teach. Musically, I'm much more of a follower than leader; like to support and don't need to be out front. I've been accused of playing jazz, but I'm not that good ... just like to play around a bit.
