Brian O'Malley's Whole Note Whome Page


I'm Brian O'Malley and I just picked up the guitar again after putting it down for way too long. Starting all over baby. Working mainly with my Sigma acoustic and my Yamaha bass.


Just want to give a big thank you to the folks that run, fund and contribute to this great site. WholeNote is an example of what the internet should be all about.
