Professional Status

  • Amateur

I am an amateur and would have to be classified as a beginner, although I have "messed around" with guitars for many years, off and on. I know music, I have led church singing and directed choirs for 35 years, and I know some guitar chords. I have a fairly extensive collection of guitar music literature, song collections, chord books, and how to books. I am a retired electronics engineer and technical writer. I live about 30 miles from Nashville, Music City USA but I am not in that scene. I was born in Texas and lived my first 20 years there enjoying Country and Western music, Bewley Mills Chuck Wagon Gang, Bob Wills and the Texas Playboys, Sons of the Pioneers, Ernest Tubb, Hank Thompson, etc. However, my music of choice is Classical.

My Guitars & Gear

I have owned several guitars over the years and a Fender tube amp. My present guitar is an inexpensive Bristol G hole with a clip-on pickup. I am a very good harmonica player and have 12 at the moment, including chromatic. I have tried to lean to play the guitar but can only get so far before I don't know what to do next, besides just running through chords.
