Finally, put All of it aside to serve Jesus Christ, my master, the last years of my life. I have been a Pastor, an elder three times while being equipped to help others get their life right with Christ before His soon and coming concerns. As far as guitar is concerned I am learning as many songs in Fingerstyle for use for church and the gospel.

My Guitars & Gear

I have 2 Collings guitar OM-2 model which are terrific Fingerstyle guitars. I also have a Martin D-28 Sunburst which I use mainly for bluegrass and sometimes worship. I also play a Cordora Nylon string guitar as well as a Cordora Ukelelle. I also play harmonica and recorder although not to well. I am extremely interested in arranging older hymns and gospel music from the old greats like Rev. Gary Davis, Mississippi John Hurt, and others.
