My name is TJ Flickinger (like you didn't know that already!)...I'm from the small town of Knox, IN and have been playing guitar for well over 20 years now.
I initially started out on drums at age 7, and picked up the guitar around the same time. I stayed mostly with percussion until taking up guitar exclusively around 1985 at the age of 15.
It's very simple. Because it's FUN! There is nothing to me that is more rewarding than playing music, and anything associated with it.
I am the founder and an administrator of a new site dedicated to guitar called, GUITAR CLINIC 101
. I have also left JavaMusic and have reopened up shop at SoundClick. TJ FLICKINGER'S MUSIC
The tune, "Europa" made it to #9 on the rock charts there, and my newest tune, "Fly Groove" is starting to get quite a bit of attention as well. Feel free to listen to and download any of those tunes.
Lastly, I would like to thank Wholenote for EVERYTHING they do. This place is one place where, if you don't learn something as a musician, you're missing out. What a WEALTH of information that is provided here!
