Music to My Ears

It started when I was four years old. One day, my Dad handed me a little harmonica. He taught me how to play “The Bells of St. Mary’s,” and from that moment I was hooked on making music.

I soon learned guitar and piano and have been playing — and experimenting — every since.

I actually studied piano, meaning I took private lessons and even majored in music for awhile in college.

But on guitar I am entirely self-taught. What I know is from observing others, jamming with others, and good old fashioned trial and error.

I compose original songs and look for ways to “reimagine” covers of popular songs.

I’m going to try to share via this blog some of the things that work for me: my finger picking technique, my chord voicings etc.

If you have questions or ideas for topics you’d like to see covered, follow this blog by clicking below and send me a note in the “comments” section.

I will do my best to answer the questions and/or respond to the suggestions.
