- What brands or products do you work with?
Well thats a good question, I have been very particular in the past of what I use, or what I would be willing to use. My very first real Guitar was an Aria Pro II made in Japan, I got it as a gift from my mom in 1978-79. I still have this guitar. During the course of times I had tried types of instruments such as; 12 strings, classical -guitars, and various electric Guitars. So if the question is what if any brand am I willing to endorse?, then my ans as it stands today is, The Aria Pro II music company, located in Japan. Fender Corporation USA in which I have purchased 4 to day a tele, two strats and what I would consider my #1 guitar today the Fender VG Stratocaster with the roland coms pickup. And finnally I would put my name to SIT strings, from my Prospective they are the best strings money can buy.
- How did you get started?
My history with the Guitar started in 1977-78. I was takeing panio lessons and then it was suggested that I consider learning the guitar. At the time my father was still alive and he did encourage me to play.
- How many projects do you average in a year?
It various depending on the year,-A few years back I attempted the Guitar-Instruction Mag, during that time in or about 2005 we came out with our first self-published book, "An introduction to the guitar" by yours truly -myself. At this time I am working on my the tv show as well as the second book "Scales Chords and Advanced Licks" We (I) have been working on this new book for almost three years, hopefully by this time next year on or about Feb 2014 it will be ready to print. I have sent a few letters to various music publishing companies for their feed back, but the jury is still out on which onr be will finally go with.
