Acoustic guitar awash in TreeVerb: That's what I'm talkin' about.

It's a privilege to be invited to perform at some of the most important moments of people's lives.

Played a lovely wedding this afternoon and this was the view overhead.

Here is a new guitar effect available only at a few locations. It's called TreeVerb.

That any part of an electoral process is based on a coin toss is just more evidence that we need to get money out of politics.

Beautiful Bill Frisell Concert

It was about 10 (maybe 15) years ago that the bass player here (Thomas Morgan) used to shyly ask me "Excuse me, can you show me how you voice a 13th chord?" He was amazing then at age 14.

We all said "Man, when you get your driver's license, your parents will never see you again."

...I hope he at least writes them once in awhile.

While I didn't play the lottery last night, I did make what I think is a MUCH better bet.

Indeed; well hopefully it won't be in the shop too long - it's going to be weird to not have the Maton around :)

That jazz guitar guy
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!"
