Starting Over

Using the Guitar to Heal.

I have played the guitar since I was 15 years old. I went from learning 6 chords to having my own band that played professionaly, all the way to playing for a Grammy award winning artist [Rockin' Sydney]. I taught guitar, played about 150 to 200 hundred gigs a year, some years, and grew to hate the whole process and almost disliked music itself. The one thing Iloved became a thing of work, sorrow , selfishness, and loss. This has been followed by years of physical iiiness.

Started over from scratch.

I am going to forget the past. I am starting fresh and new like a rebirth.
