Favorite bands :
Geez, I don't think I can name them all! Ha ha ha. I'll first say that the one guy who ignited my fire to finally play was & still is #1 for me, Gavin DeGraw. I have you to thank Gavin. Off the top of my head a few bands/artists I love are, The Beatles, Tori Amos, Crowded House, Stevie Wonder, Sheryl Crow, Incubus, Gavin DeGraw, India Arie, Collective Soul, Billy Joel
Favorite guitarists :
Tough call. Eddie VH, Tim Reynolds, Al DiMeola, Mickey Einziger, Joe Satriani, John Frusciante, Pete Townsend, Billy Norris, Brian May, George Harrison R.I.P., Prince, Rodrigo y Gabriella
Favorite bassists :
Jon Entwistle R.I.P, Mike Balzary, Les Claypool, Geddy Lee, Sting, Chris Squire, Paul McCartney
Favorite books :
I mostly read music theory & musical notation! LOL! I do try to read & sometimes write spiritually everyday. Wayne Dyer, Eckhart Tolle, Rumi, and teachings from the Bible, Bhudda and other spiritual entities. The last book I read was Life of Pi, Yann Martel, it was quite an incredible piece of work.
Favorite tv :
I've been watching American Idol this season, but other than that, it's always music. Palladia, concerts which I TiVo. Hey what ever happened to MTV? Remember when MTV was actually "Music Television"? And VH1's "Save the Music"... I imagine they're saving the music for some other time zone I'm not part of because there's RARELY any music on, EVER!
Favorite movies :
I can't think of any at the moment, but I like Mitch Albom's movies based on his books. I recently watched "Good Will Hunting" again ~ outstanding. Pixar movies are so cool for everybody too!

Retired from the 9-5 world. Taking up music, at mid-point in life. Used to think, "Gosh, I wish I would have started this earlier..." I realize now is always the perfect time. Life is music, if you make it. All the contributions here on U.G. have been so helpful, both with the piano and guitar for me. I made my 1st tab/contribution of an unreleased song just last night (hope it gets listed). I thank everyone here on the site that help us all make music.
