Hello GMC...I'm new here and will be lurking about until I get a feel for the place. I've been playing guitar since I was 17 and started playing professionally at 21. I'm 71 years old now and am still at it. I've played a variety of styles from blues to folk/Americana to rock to country but have gone back mostly to the blues in recent years. I'm here both to learn and to teach.

Below are a few of my friends...

Thanks all for the very warm welcome.

Yes, I have taught and do teach.

I'll post some detailed info on my guitars at a later date. I've already posted on my Gretsch.

I played at Larry Blake's a couple of times in the '80s opening for John Hammond.

Thank you all again! smile.gif
