I have been playing guitar since 1994. That was the year I received my first guitar, a Lyon Series Washburn (Strat copy) for Christmas. But my life as a musician actually began a few years earlier while in middle school when I learned how to play he Tuba. When I got to high school I picked up the trombone before learning how to play guitar. After that I learned a few tricks on the Bass guitar and then found my niche behind a drum set for a number of years. The Tuba, Trombone and Bass are all long gone and I sold my drums a couple of years ago (spring 2015). Now I spend the better part of any given day geeking out on guitars like a full fledged fanboy. It beats watching sports.
