Playing Styles and Interests
I'm a bit of a musical schizophrenic, always dabbling with different musical styles and instruments. I play acoustic and electric guitar, lap-steel, pedal-steel, dobro, and mandolin. In addition to working as a sideman with various bands, I write and perform solo instrumental guitar music. I worked for several years as the music editor for Acoustic Guitar magazine, and currently work as a music transcriber and web developer. I was a previous winner of the fingerstyle guitar competion at the Telluride Music Fesitival. I've written several guitar method books and have contributed articles and transcriptions to all the major guitar magazines and publishers.
