Born in '71, I started playing the guitar when I was 13. I wanted to learn and play in school but the only options were Jazz Band and Marching Band! There was no Rock Guitar Class at that time, so I ended up having to learn Jazz, Funk, and Marching Band type stuff, LOL! Anyway, I spent the next 15 years or so playing in Metal bands all over So Cal. Then came my family and personal obligations forced me to stop playing. After an 8 year layoff, I started playing again, and in my maturity, the guitar never sounded or felt so good. I picked up right where I left off. All I need now is a band and a few gigs!
