Tell us more about yourself (place a Bio here if you wish)
Picked up guitar when I was 33. Got hooked after playing rhythm for Stephen Bennett the year he won at Winfield. Have been teaching and trying to learn more myself. Retired from career as Language Arts teacher and now trying to concentrate solely on this wonderful style of music. Would love to find someone to pick with.
