Rays Guitar Page!


Greetings I'm Ray, Welcome to my page. I am really here to learn, but I have been playing bass forever and have backed up many fine guitarist over the years and they have contributed to my playing greatly. I also am a big fan of Steely Dan, & that being Walter Becker has greatly inspired me to tackle guitar also. That being I have somewhat of a grasp of both instruments and hope to also share what I know as well. Here's something that really helped me

just cut and paste address Best Regards Ray
