|My Musical Knowledge|
Instruments I Play:
|Steel String Acoustic Guitar||Years Playing: 40||Proficiency: Beginner|
|My Approach to Learning and Playing:|
though its only theory- I see learning as two fundamentally different things:
constant jamming with different people and
a classical-student like attitude at home with my repetoire.
After all, Randy Rhodes had the same attitude.
|My Musical Education:|
"Gotta want it attitude" from fighting with my older brother over the only guitar in the house. His guitar.
Some private lessons with Chet Catallo and some lessons at Hochstein School of Music. The WWW.
|My Musical Influences:|
Lets be straight- "Mary Had a Little Lamb".
Life can only be understood backwards but must be lived forwards.
My top influences are clearly when I was doing something else like trying to sit-up in my crib while my mother sang to me or played a nursery rhyme record.
Then came The Carpenters, John Denver, then Disco, then Soul, Then Funk, then KISS, Zep, Metallica, FEAR, The MeatMen, DEad Kennedys, Janes Addiction, Green Day etc.
|My Learning Resources:|
Pandora Podcasts -musicology series.
