In the Redwoods

Old enough to know better, but I've forgotton what "it" is...

Grew up in San Francisco East Bay. My brother brought home a Stella from Philmont Scout Camp in the summer of 1962. Also played trombone. I like to tell stories.

In all things, give thanks to the Lord...

For He is good and worthy of praise.

Isn't an acoustic guitar what you get when a storm knocks out the power?

Aren't chords the things that you hook up your acoustic guitar to your amp with?

Isn't creativity 2% inspiration and 98% theft? (see "musical influences")
