Description

Handmade on CD

When I was 15 my friend Chris had taught me 3 or 4 guitar chords. Then I wanted to learn to play the banjo and my neighbor next door, Marge, found me a $35 banjo - a Rhapsody - and taught me how to play the 5-string with my thumb and first finger working the 5th string and the bass, and my bottom 3 fingers doing the strum. She was the greatest. She taught me old folk songs. Some years later I bought a nylon string guitar in Atlanta but when I got back to California, I traded for a steel string - a Gibson J-40. I started writing some songs because that was the thing, to get out what was inside. Bought a Fender Strat just before moving to Texas. I spent some years in Dallas and played the open mic's down at Club Dada, in the Deep Ellum District. I bought a new Strat in Dallas because the used one I brought from Cal got stolen in a break-in. Back in California I wanted to start putting some of the songs down. I've been blown away by the musicians I've hooked up with. It's all been pretty cool.
