The Guitar Blog

Hello Fellow Guitarists! I have been playing guitar since the age of 6, and own way too many guitars.

I spent 10 years working in Hollywood as a video engineer and creative consultant in post-production. Later I worked for Sony and Ascent Media as a Senior Broadcast Systems Design Engineer. Now I just blog and am trying that Affiliate Marketing space, as one of my personal friends is highly successful, and is coaching me.

I have collected guitars from the time I could afford to buy them, starting with a Vox ‘stratocaster-styled’ guitar, and a fender vibro-champ amplifier.

Now I have a home studio, (pictured above), with enough gear to record my first album. Around my busy schedule, I plan on writing and recording at least one song per month until I have 12 or 15 in the can.

My musical taste’s began in folk and rock music, gradually adding jazz. I soon realized and appreciated how difficult jazz is to perform!

Some of my favorite guitar players are:

Steve Vai – incredible technical skill, and seems to have endless creativity.

Scott Henderson – wonderful fusion-style guitarist who can rock with the best of them.

Pat Metheny – great tone, wonderful long compositions that allow your mind to just relax and dig his style.

Eric Clapton – what can you say about a legend! When I first heard the live version of ‘Crossroads’ I was completely blown away, what a cool live sound he had in those early years.

Doc Watson – an incredible bluegrass picker and composer. Stratospheric talent was he!

My recording station is pc-based, Pro-Tools LE and various drum machines and guitar effects boxes to suit.

My monitors are Polk Audio, and my amplifier (stereo-only) is a Crown DC-150 that is over 20 years old and still performing like it was new.

As I begin to record some songs I may place a few here for you to listen to and critique… go ahead be honest!

Please do comment below and let me know what you think.
