Mystery Pic. What is it?

I bet only musicians above a certain age will know what this is. Do you recognize this piece of tech that changed the way we make and listen to music?

Ha ha. So I was late and VERY WRONG. Next time I'll read the question first.

My first photosphere. I'm think freaking out.

Click thru to see my studio in a 360 degree panoramic shot. Maybe this requires some practice to get right.

It must be remembered that contextualising linearities, especially if they are quasi-synthetic (or even visual), should be avoided.

Always slow to upgrade. Hello Mac OS Maverick. What will you break?

I've had no issues with Maverick, even on my 2007 MBP. Your mileage may vary, however.

That jazz guitar guy on the internet
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 and am one of the first providers of the BRAND NEW Google Helpouts.

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!"
