Guitar Player Type

Mentor

I've been playing acoustic and electric guitar for 30 years now. I've had some local Cincinnati success with teaching guitar/music lessons and playing out with a couple of bands over the years (the last one The Smiling Rhinos for about 17 years). I am beginning to make the transition from band and electric guitar to solo acoustic guitar...should be a fun journey!
