A native New Yorker, I moved to Arizona in 1995 and won't ever live anywhere else! A guitar player since 1981, I spent the late eighties and early nineties doing the lousy day job/gigging musician thing. It wasn't until 1997 that I got a job in a guitar store. It took me that long to figure out your day gig and your music gig could be the same thing! I moved my collection of repair tools to Sam Ash Music in Arizona in March of 2005 and I am proud to be associated with such a great company.I also play electric bass,dobro,mandolin and tenor banjo. I am solely responsible for all contents of this blog.
