not alot to say 'bout myself except that i'm just a regular guy who picked up the guitar for the same reason 90% of us did... to get laid. although it's only worked to a moderate degree, and not at all at first, i found a love for playing music. i enjoy the concentrated probing for a new sound or technique application until unlock that discovery and the whole world fades leaving you tranquil and grooving. it's as much about search as it is about discovery, that's why as musicians we do what we do.
