Sat down with my Digitech RP355 and played with the looper for hours last night and tonight. A looper is a GREAT practice tool for soloing. Updated 18 Aug · 0 comments

About Me

When I was a kid, I learned to read music on my first instrument, the accordian. My father played guitar a bit, so when I was teen I adopted his guitar and taught myself to play out of his "Sounds of Silence" songbook using the picture chords. From there, I kept learning more songs and chords and some fingerpicking.

In college I took music theory and recording techniques. I also worked in an acoustic guitar shop where I heard a lot of great fingerstyle players, and I started to play bass too.

I had to slow down for a few years because of tendonitis in my wrists. Eventually I met a friend who played bass and wanted to jam, so I bought a Squire Tele and we played regularly together, even playing a few parties. I started to sing too, for lack of someone else to do it! I'm not a great singer but I do my best.

This last year I decided that I wanted to be a more serious guitar student, and in June 2012 I bought L&M as a first step towards that goal. The community here has really kept me motivated, as well as a surprise opportunity to jam regularly with some other local guitarists who are all more experienced players than I am.

I'm now working on playing lead and beginning jazz comping.
