Someday, I will have been play guitar for 20 years, and I will Guitarist Extraordinaire. I'm 48 years old, and I've been playing for a year. I feel like I'm making up for lost time, so I've put myself on the accelerated program.

- Miles Davis, Bob Marley, Bruce Cockburn, Dick Dale, Django Reinhardt, Kula Shaker, Richard Thompson
- Brian Eno, David Gilmour, Mark Knopfler, Elvis Costello, Michael Hedges, Nick Drake, I've been listening for a long time...
