Welcome to my website. I’m a Music Nerd/Guitar Geek. I’ve also been a semi-professional musician for over 30 years as a bassist and guitarist. I am now concentrating on an instrument called the Chapman Stick Guitar (go to the Chapman Stick Guitar tab for more details).
My musical roots are in what can be considered first generation jam bands like the Grateful Dead and the Allman Brothers Band. From my early interest in these bands, I became interested in their musicals roots. This led me to Blues, Jazz, Folk, Country, Classical, etc. It’s all good, it’s all cool!
I have studied with teachers, in schools and on my own. I consider myself a little bit of a musicologist (see here for a definition: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Musicology) and I plan to use this blog to post articles and thoughts on musical topics that reflect my interests and hopefully some of yours.
Hope you will check it out. Your comments (excluding those that are willfully mean and/or stupid) will be welcome.
