Hi people.

I'm new here—but not to the guitar. I've been playing since 1972, when I got my first Telecaster (a '61 with a '68 maple neck, $125-long gone now).

During the '80's I lived on Bainbridge Island, across from Seattle, and gigged constantly in the Seattle area (7 nights a week) for almost 10 years before moving back to CT.

Since moving back to CT I've played in a bunch of bands around CT, MA, RI, NYC such as Steel Rodeo, The Greg Sherrod Band, Garry and the Moodswingers, The Whiskey River Band, The Housebreakers, and more and hosted the Cafe Nine blues jam once a month for almost 10 years.

Currently playing with The Forgotten Ones, The Moody/Blossom Band and Round Trip.

Glad to be aboard. Looking forward to hearing from some of you CT guys and generally being here!

Hi Jim,

No, I never did get to hear him or meet him, but when I was in high school, way back when, I had some friends who took lessons from him. I guess he was the man.
