ABOUT

Hi, I’m a 65 year old amateur guitar player. Been at it since high school. At the moment I’m focussed on slide playing. I use a six string lap steel tuned to concert E for blues/jazz/rock. Can put some dirt on that so it howls. A dobro in open G for country and bluegrass. I own a pedal steel guitar and have begun to get the hang of it. Not sure where that one will lead, but it sure is fun to play! Obviously any of the above instruments can be adapted to any kind of music. I can read charts pretty well, but not so good with sheet music.
