Jeff Ackley / Bio

51 yrs old..Grew up in Tinley Park Illinois..been playing guitar since I was 12 or 13 yrs old..pretty much self taught. I quit the marching band thing and got a guitar and the rest is history. My father is my musical inspiration. Grew up surrounded by some killer music..old blues records..beatles..simon and garfunkel..james taylor etc. We had a jukebox..guitars..piano..banjos..ukelele..dulcimer..autoharp..synthesizer..harmonicas etc. Not the best guitarist around but not too shabby. I have an '81 Les Paul Custom which kills..an early 70's Hohner acoustic that my father gave me when I was 15 yrs old..awesome guitar. Also have a 'Little Martin' travel guitar which has become my favorite to play lately. I have a couple of other acoustics and a yamaha bass..have a Mesa Boogie 5:50 Express which also kills. just started using garageband lately instead of my digital 12 track..transition mode if you will.
Overall, I tend to lean more toward the acoustic side of things. I love playing the guitar. One of the best decisions I've ever made was picking up a guitar for the first time. Rock on..
