Rockin The House

Welcome to my crazy WholeNote Web Page. I have been playing 30+ years, and still have the same Passion for Guitar Playing as I did when I first started. I play Blues, Rock, and Progressive Metal. I have done minor touring and studio recording. My influences range from Motown, to Blues, to Classical, to Rock, to all types of Metal. This place is so cool, growing up I would have killed to have a community of guitarists to learn from. Oh I joined a band that plays classic rock. We are looking for a drummer? Below is a link to the band website
