Umm . . .Let's see . . I've always loved listening to music. My dad has a wicked record collection that I used to play around with when I was little. This past year at Bluesfest(2008), I saw some really great artists . .Matt Mays, The Tragically Hip, Clapton, Michael Franti and Spearhead . . . and I decided I needed to take in more live music. This year so far I've seen the The Trews, The Foo Fighters, Matt Mays and El Torpedo (yes, twice), The Sadies (amazing) as well as some really awesome local bands - The Woodrunners, Dave and Kris + Reza, Ty Hall and the EZ3, Sun's Command. You gotta support your local talent. Jan '09 I finally got to see Sam Roberts.
I have a little background in music . . .Played the piano for about a split second when i was little and I played the Tenor Sax in my junior high and high school concert bands.
But I've always wanted to learn the guitar so for now the plan is to become half-way decent on an acoustic (my Art & Lutherie Folk) and than learn electric . l.i already have my eye on a Gretsch . . .
That's all for now . . .
