Tell us more about yourself (place a Bio here if you wish)
I live at Lake of the Ozarks. Have been playing guitar for about 25 or so years off & on, almost completely self taught from books and videos, and have never played with anyone else, so not nearly a good as I'd like to be. Like to play a lot of different styles, and I think I love the learning part of it as much as the actual playing.
