I started playing in 1960 on an old "f" hole Harmony that i found in the basement.
My first lesson was on my birthday as it was what i asked for.My parents lived to regret those first years as they had to stop me from running up and down scales and drove them crazy.
I suppose i was always a writer, my parents told me i used to sing about everything i saw and put it into verse format.
I guess it was pretty funny because they always broke out laughing when they told the story.
So here i am still writing songs for fun on my old friend" OATS" (my D28 Martin i bought in 1969) and have had an amazing life of music and experience so enjoy my work and keep in touch as i'll be recording many more.
