Favorite Artists/Bands: Sting and Police, Santana, Beatles (just about everything British 60-70's), Tom Petty, Beach Boys, B.B. King, CSNY..... the list goes on, but these artists are at the top of my list.

Favorite style of music to play: 60-80's rock is my favorite to listen to, but folk-rock and most recently blues has grabbed most of my playing time. I am fascinated with the genre of jazz and though my understanding of it is primitive , I enjoy learning some of the progressions and the some of the chordal possibilities.

What made you want to play music? As a young person I was surrounded by music, popular from my mom and country western from my Dad. I was not interested in 5th grade band , but my neighbor was selling his Kay acoustic for $25 and I bought it. A few months of lessons and it went into the closet . I do remember seeing the "Meet the Beatles" album while taking lessons at the music store, and somehow over the next year or so decided I needed an electric guitar. I was finally hooked.

If the house was on fire, which instrument would you grab? My PRS Hollowbody II

Favorite place to be when playing guitar: Anywhere with a musical friend.

Most delightful musical moment so far: Listening to my compositions played at my wedding in 1974. Playing at my first open jam last week.

Hobbies: Playing guitar, woodworking, exercising, travel--especially those including a musical experience.

Current Job: Retired General Dentist
