Send a Message to Dave George

Too Old to Rock and Roll (not!), Too Young to Die.

In the beginning...

Hi, my name's Dave George. I was brought up around music, all I've ever wanted to do that amounts to anything has revolved around music-it's what God put me on earth for, I think. I started out on the piano, thanks to my grandmother who paid for eight years of lessons. I did alright. Then, when I joined the Navy and got orders to Cuba, I knew I was going to have a lot of time on my hands, so that's when I picked up the guitar, and from then on, the guitar's been the main thing.

...As time goes by...

I've gone in a lot of different directions and followed different musical infatuations in the past 28-or-so years, and I haven't always practiced as faithfully as I should have. I should play a lot better than I do, given the number of years I've been at it now. But for the past eight years, give or take, I've come to admire the work of men like Vai and Satriani and am making a last-ditch effort to emulate them, if for no other reason than my own pride and satisfaction. Anyway I wish you all the best and may God bless you as you seek your place in the musical realm (Psalm 150).
