My Guitar Goal

What I'm Focused On Now

I started playing guitar in 1966 and have been playing mostly on with a couple of brief offs ever since.

I started with TAC a bit over three years ago with the goal of learning how to finger pick which I have done and by continuing with the daily challenges hope to improve in this as time goes by.

My flat picking technique has improved measurably over the past three years, again thanks to my daily TAC challenges. As has my ability to navigate the fret-board.

I really don’t have a need for setting any specific goal for the next 90 days and if you look at my guitar routine you will get a sense as to why.

In closing, becoming a lifetime member of TAC is one of the best decisions I have ever made and I can’t thank Tony enough for what he has taught and will continue to teach this old guitar player.

My Guitar Routine

This is How I TAC

I play the daily challenges almost always, vacations excepted.

I do weekly 2 hour jam/practice sessions with core members of Tumbleweeds (my spouse Loni on bass) and we hold another 2 hour jam for extended Tumbleweed members every other week. Roots music, beyond bluegrass.

I work 1 to 2 hours a week playing jazz infused blues and rockabilly with my spouse Loni on bass again for our group The Jet Kings.

I also practice a lot of expanded folk music on 12 string and six string acoustic guitars, both flat and finger picking.
