Playing Styles and Interests
Technique and Theory
Grew up hearing blues, folk music and jazz. Old enough to have heard & met a few of the masters of country blues. Very disappointed when I realized I couldn't grow up to be Brownie McGhee. Owe my thumb to Mississippi John Hurt. I've played a little of everything from the folk repertoire to contra dance tunes to bossa nova, from the oud and mandolin to a little jazz guitar.
My Guitars & Gear
A late '50s D-28 picked me as its owner in the mid '60s and has kept me ever since. Couple of Gibson electric archtops, an O-style resonator from Lark in the Morning, and a George Lowden 12. '20s Washburn single 0 and a J-200. Loudbox Mini and a Peavey 158.
