We're going through a bad time, Rob. At some point in time, live actual music will be a prized part of civilisation again!

In the Spirit of America -- without all the shouting.

Combine an introspective mood, sultry chords with a light touch and the result can be a Patriotic Hymn devoid of politics.

While in Nashville a couple of months ago, a young guitar hotshot Tanner Duckworth turned me onto this cool guitar device: the Pitch-Key.

It's for quickly re-tuning a string back and forth between different pitches: drop D for me. Inexpensive and effective.

Thanks Tanner!

I enjoy playing music for weddings. I enjoy playing Led Zeppelin tunes.

This weekend, I'm playing a wedding during which I'll play almost exclusively Led Zeppelin songs.

That's not a pick. That's a garden trowel.

I crashed my car just prior to heading to Nashville.

I ran to this fine gentleman and made what I thought was fair offer. Unfortunately, we were unable to make a deal on this fine car.

That jazz guitar guy
Introduction
I've been a guitar nut since I was ten years old.

That long-haired guy with the guitar--that was me all through school (I know, the long-haired part is difficult to believe, but it's true!). 

I have always known what I wanted to do with my life and the guitar has been a near-constant companion. 

I'm so fortunate to have the privilege of “Living the Dream” of a pro muso: Playing gigs, recording albums, making videos, teaching--I love it.

Teaching music is something I've long been passionate about. I see 40-60 private students here in the San Francisco Bay area where I live. I also give Lessons Online via Skype, G+ via private hangout.

I also lead an amazing band the Atmos Trio.

You'll find me playing live and in-studio concerts on Youtube, offering tunes at a "Pay What You Want (even nothing)" price on my Global Music Store, or if you prefer, you can find my music on iTunes or Google Play.

I also have a growing community of visual artists and musicians of all levels at My Blog or you can subscribe to my spam-free Newsletter.

See you on 'The Other Side' and oh, if you've read this far, you might as well drop me a "Howdy!"
