Retired and finally finding time for guitar playing; something I started 40 years ago, moved away from, and wish now I hadn't. Just play to amuse myself. Flatpicking, bluegrass, and country are what I enjoy.

My Guitars & Gear

Martin HD-28 and Martin D-16 RGT. Framus 12-String that I've had, seemingly, forever. [It was a lot easier to play when I was younger!] A Yamaha G-250 nylon 6-string, for just bumming around. And a 5-string banjo that hasn't seen the light of day for a looooong time. Traded in my first Martin D-16 for the HD28 a couple years ago. What a sweet difference. Love it. Played that first 16 a lot; play the 28 much more. Then I realized that I missed the "ruggedness" of the 16, which is more forgiving of pumps and scratches, so I went and bought another D-16 RGT. It was like falling in love all over again.
