I’ve played guitar for over 45 years. I started playing trumpet in 5th grade and was in band class each year through high school. My first job at 16 was in a record store in the early 70s where I was immersed in rock, Motown, folk, and jazz music. The guitar teacher there and I were good friends and spent hundreds of hours together playing blues, jazz and rock. I learned guitar and bass simultaneously, and was bass player for his band.
I have my own home recording studio and learned Cubase from Berklee Online.
It’s taken decades to develop my own finger picking style and I’ve been composing instrumental guitar tunes for many years. I play acoustic 12 string and classical guitars.

There's so much fantastic music out there. Most of it is full of sound and fury, but signifies little or nothing.
My original rock and blues songs express my own experiences with our corrupt family court system and government in general. I use music as a vehicle to increase awareness of problems and offer solutions for these troubled times.
In 2018, I've recorded a few parodies of some great early Beatles music. Check out

I can perform either or both:
1 - Original instrumental 12 string and classical guitar tunes
