A little of me

My history and why I love music

Okay it's actually very little of both but anyway. I have been playing many years on the acoustic/classical guitar. I first started learning when I was 18 and I had never picked up an instrument in my life. I bought a mag. called Guitar Method and I learned solely on it and believe it or not, Wholenote. I discovered Wholenote 4 years ago and I make it a point to visit every day. Now that I'm 27 and understand the guitar fairly well, I have made it a mission to save others from the Hell I experienced teaching myself. I love music with a passion. In nothing can a person express him/herself so fully as in music. This is why I teach as many as I can what little I know. And I have found that several people want to learn just if someone would take the time to teach.
