Home Is Where The Heart Is


Greetings fellow Guitarists of The World!

Wholenote has provided me with a True Home for sharing experiences of Guitar Playing and Enjoyment.

I hope that we may all find something of mutual benefit and interest - my own Lessons are in the form of a musical ScrapBook.

You can also check out my Facebook or ReverbNation Pages.

Enough About Me Already


I am a Software Engineer by profession, and a Guitarist by nature. I neither teach Guitar nor play regularly in a band. I do however, have over 40 years self-taught experience of playing the Guitar.

My style of playing is undoubtedly best described as being my own. I suppose one would call it Classical in origin, yet I know very few classical tunes. I would also have to admit to using elements of Folk and Country, yet I play few folk tunes on guitar.

The word which best describes my style, and to which I will most readily respond, is Acoustic, yet I have a passion for Guitar Synthesizers and Effects and the possibilities they create for Solo Performance.

Well I hope that's clear enough for you.
