Starting with the Beatles when I was 9, my musical journey has taken many roads and my tastes are varied and unpredictable.
It all started with The Beatles when I was 9. I saw the moview A Hard Days Night and decided I wanted to be a Beatle, so I talked my parents into buying me a cheap guitar and guitar lessons. I still play guitar, although I'm usually quite humbled when I listen to talented jazz guitarists, flamenco guitarists or classical guitarists.
My musical roots lie in blues, blues-based rock and roll and progressive rock. My interests in musical genres are very diverse - my interest in jazz began when I was a teen, although I really didn't start to explore jazz seriously until I was in my late 20s. I have grown to really love and appreciate many forms of jazz music, but there are times when I just want to crank up AC/DC and revel in the Marshall fueled power chords.
