To paraphrase Monty Python:

On second thought, let's not go to Facebook. It is a silly place.

Wim den Herder is new find for me. He amazingly plays 3-part groove/ melodies using almost exclusively his flat pick. Wow!

+Randy Resnick The Fender Bass VI seems to fit the bill (not that the designer of the t-shirt knew that).

Here's another course https://www.coursera.org/course/bitcointech

I find the technology fascinating, but I'm not going to invest a lot on money in it yet. I've got a small amount to play around with, but I don't have much use for it.

If you do want some then it's relatively cheap at the moment. I don't know how it will go in the long term

DIY pedal board FTW!

I've had semi giant Mission Control-style board for years. This time I wanted a super-small board that's clean, practical and sound great.

A +Line 6 M9 and a +TC Electronic Polytune Mini is all that's here. What makes this board semi-interesting are the Godlyke power supplies: they are powerful enough to run the M9 and small enough to fit on the underside of the board.

... And it all fits in my MonoCases Guitar Tick that attached to my acoustic gig bag.

In 1982, the legendary Lenny Breau masterfully re-worked Elizabeth Cotton's folk/ country classic Freight Train.

I miss Lenny so much.

That jazz guitar guy on the internet
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 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!"
