Rocky Mountain Rocker

Hello, and welcome to my Wholenote Page.

Please check out my article "So, I Didn't Become A Rock Star". It will give you a notion as to how I feel about playing ...even though I didn't become a rock star.

People often ask "What kind of music do you play?" The answer: Rock and Roll! I know that covers a lot of sub-genres, but if it's straight-ahead rock and roll with guitars, of course, I'm into it!

Hey! Do you live in the Denver Metro area and want to jam sometime?

My son (he's 15) is sticking with his fledgling guitar playing, and I am very pleased with that.

finally found a traveling guitar that appeals to me. As an IT consultant that typically travels 30+ weeks a year, it's difficult to take a guitar along. I have a thinline acoustic that I have taken to client sites before, but only if I'm staying there several weeks or more, and I have somewhere secure to put it over the weekend. But this is SO portable, that I can take it anywhere, it fits in the overhead of the smallest CRJ, and I can practice through headphones. The action and tone are so unbelievable. The folks at my church were astounded by the sound when I played it during our Good Friday service. After checking out things like the Martin Backpacker, the Baby Martin, the Baby Taylor, and the Steinberger, I picked up an Ultralight by Traveler Guitar.
