Comments

Louisiana bred, now in Austin Texas, I've been playing guitar for almost 30 years now, not as career but as life passion, still loving it and learning. Thanks to Austin Vintage Guitars for giving me new ears. Playing live is best and loving all styles, but in the end things like Little Feat w/Lowell, the Meters, Larry Carlton (circa Steely Dan era) and Eric Johnson catch my ears.
