I began trying to play the guitar in 1965. I've been at it ever since.
What gear do you use?
I primarily play a blue Ribbecke Halfling (an endorsement deal), and an old Ibanez ST1 which has been significantly customized. I may be soon placing an order for another archtop with the great luthier, Brad Nickerson.
Who was your biggest musical influence growing up?
Lenny Breau. I was introduced to, and amazed by his playing a couple of years after I had taken a few lessons from him. I did not recognize him as my former teacher until much later, when i started to remember some of the things he told me.
Are you in a band? Have you been in bands?
Yes. Almost always jazz, or some derivative thereof...
