What made you want to play music?  After a night out listening to some blues players I told my hubby I wanted to learn to play guitar. For our anniversary he bought me my 1st guitar. He is always inspiring me to explore my love for music.

Previous music experience: Grade school through high school I played trumpet.

If the house was on fire, which instrument would you grab? That is a tough choice but I have to say my Martin. It has sentimental value, and if I grabbed the electric I'd have to grab the amp too.
