Hello, from Ventura County, California, USA 🇺🇸!

My name is John, and I’m a —- uh—— “vintage” player, having been involved in making music in one way, shape or form fo my entire life.

Although I play bass guitar, and I actually get paid to play the Great Highland Bagpipes, my first love has always been the guitar. However, I never seriously studied the instrument, and as such, never really progressed as a player. Now, though, as I near my retirement, I’m finding that I have the time to actually dig in and get involved in the learning process.

To that end, I have a student model Alvarez 5004 and Mr. Noad’s books at hand, and I am diving in to the nylon string world, leaving my electric guitars in their cases for the time being. I am excited to have the opportunity to actually interact with other players who are at my level, and share the trials as well as victories that we all go through whilst learning.

Happy to be here!
