# of Years Played
I’ve been playing on and off since I was 14 years old, also followed with a 10 year break. But it’s only been the past year that I’ve really put the effort in.
How many guitars do you currently own?
I have a Gibson SG and a Little Martin LX1.
Why is it important for you to improve at guitar?
I want to be the best that I can, so that I can hear the true beauty of each of my guitars ‘voice’. It’s such a great feeling to be able to play a piece of music.
Why are you an active TAC member?
I enjoy the community spirit and friendly encouragement.
What would you tell other TAC members who don’t think they would be good at writing songs?
Be brave and enjoy what you do. Its astounding how many very well known songs have three simple chords.
What convinced you to submit your first performance video?
I wanted to be a contributing member of the forum and I also wanted to overcome my shyness in playing in front of people.
Tell us the story of your first open mic?
I’ve only recently plucked (no pun intended) up the courage to play in front of my family. But my New Year’s Resolution is to go to an open mic and get up and play.
What else would be cool for people to know about you?
I like exploring derelict buildings. It fascinates me that even with all the decay a building still maintains it’s soul and beauty. I would like to add that I ask for permission to enter these buildings.
