Been playing since 1965. Self taught, so I have developed my own style over the years. Started on a Stella Harmony with a hole in the face, found in the trash. Wish I still had it. Played my way through graduate school, made enough food and movie money. Gave it up for 27 years to raise a family. Started playing again, two years ago. Writing songs, finally. My idols are Paul Simon, John Prine, Bob Dylan and Jackson Browne.
