I grew up in the rock and roll city of Cleveland, Ohio and in the good old band days could be seen hanging out and playing in clubs with the likes of Joe Walsh and the James Gang and Phil Keaggy and Glass Harp. While playing guitar for as long as I can remember, the love of that instrument developed into a focus on acoustic fingerstyle guitar. With wide musical influences such as fingerstyle masters Merle Travis, Chet Atkins or Jerry Reed and now Tommy Emmanuel, classic blues and rock players such as Jeff Beck and Jimmy Page to the infamous Gypsy Swing player Django Reinhard, my music draws on a wide variety of sounds. Singing is somewhat new to me but hopefully it rounds out the music.

My vision is that “Life is too short for One Groove” and as a result I find myself investigating a wide range of musical colors. While you will find a lot of covers here, I will also be offering original compositions when the inspiration hits me.

For the last several years I have playing and streamed music in the virtual world Second Life under a stage name of Frets Nirvana. I could be interested in expanding that experience with a virtual band in that environment as well as any other opportunity that arises. I am retired but lead a very busy life but I dedicate a portion of my days to pursuing music as my passion. This could include writing and composing music with like minded folks.
