A Personal Message...

When I was eight years old, I had two friends that played guitar. It was so interesting to me that for some reason I was compelled to want to learn to play guitar more than anything else in the world. One day I convinced my parents to let me meet with a guitar teacher. He gave me a guitar to try and I talked my parents into buying me a $35.00 acoustic that he sold to his new students. I played that guitar until it broke! One more acoustic and two electric guitars later, (plus 9 years of lessons), I finally had enough knowledge to attend a professional music college and get the real training I needed to play professionally. My interest in the guitar has never stopped. I guess nothing has changed since my old friends had first inspired me!
