About Me

About Me....

Quickly advancing into the 'Geezer' generation... heh heh...

Like many of us in this 50's-60's age range, as a child in school music was taught to us... Me, I was saddled with clarinet and bass clarinet. After surviving the the the rockin 60's and 70's, lol, clarinet just wasn't 'cool'. Getting absorbed with careers, life, raising a family and taking care of a house evolved,, music simply drifted into the deep background.

Last summer I needed to have a knee replaced and was 'out-of-commission' for a couple months. I realized I might be smart to pursue some bucket list items if I ever really do it. Soooooooo top of the list... tada! learn how to play guitar. Not smoke on the water or the opening riff of Layla either... Nope, the REAL THING! Back to music theory, reading, writing, composing, truly comprehend the instrument (regardless of actual 'talent').. I researched, reviewed then did it all some more... I pried open my wallet and bought Steve's course... Ding Ding Ding.... bullseye! whatta correct move this is. I love it! I may not be going at the speed I should but I keep progressing :) More importantly I find motivation and encouragement every step of the way with this program... Fantastic!

In my work, I grind out 6-7 12 hour days in a row and then have about the same time off... Very hard to find the time to sit and get my practicing in during my work stretches but I can always find at least a few minutes to sit and work on whatever part of a lesson I'm in.... During my off stretches I really give my fingers a work out, heh heh, still toughening them up and strengthening that barr index finger :)


I have no aspirations on ever being 'in' a band or playing for groups or any such thing. I play for me and anyone in the house who can't escape, chuckle.

I suppose that's plenty enough to know about me for now :) Cheers!
