Geetar... tips, talk, tunes, treasures

Takeoff Lick...

I'm a lifetime student of the guitar. I started playing at the age of 8, and now, in my late 60s, I still feel there's much to learn.

I've dabbled in almost every genre and have favorites in each field. Though I rarely try to duplicate another guitarists licks during my own performance, I study these lines during my own practice time -- what makes them sound interesting and how the hell did they do that?

There are a few things that I'd like to share with other players and that's what this site is for... you can expect a few "lessons", some great images of guitars, a bit of geetar-gossip, opinions, recollections. If there's something you'd like to see expanded on these pages, just contact me.

I hope that this site is helpful and worthwhile for those who visit. Tell your friends.
