Born in Denmark. Had my first guitar experience when I went to high school. Self taught everything with a little help from friends around high school. Had my first guitar when i went to a music school learning classic guitar, but quit after one season, as my interesset was in rock guitar. Bought my first guitar (electric) from a class mate in high school. Got my first brand new Yamaha western guitar in my 18th birthday present and have been loving it ever since. Never had any better guitar then that.
