About Me ... my journey to creating a website about acoustic guitars
I have 2 confessions ...
Guitar is not the first instrument I learned, rather the third. And, I never envisioned creating an acoustic guitar web site. But, here I am!
My Music Background
At 6 years old, I began piano and took instruction for 13 years. At age 11, I picked-up the flute and had 8 years of instruction ... 21 years of combined, private music instruction.
As a high school senior, my friends and I started a jazz band - yours truly on keyboard. I also had a music school business going during high school, with 6 flute and piano students of my own.
Fast forward ... I pursued a college degree in economics and a masters degree in business, and worked for 5 different Fortune 500 companies for over 20 years. My days were long ... mostly 12 hour+ days. It was during this time that I picked-up the acoustic guitar as a stress outlet.
Turn of Events ... birth of a website
Very unexpectedly, my family and I moved from Philadelphia to southern Oregon. I left my corporate job behind and decided to stay-at-home with our 3-year-old daughter. We left our Center City Philadelphia rowhouse and settled into a home overlooking the magnificent Cascade Mountains in Oregon. Here's the view from my office ...
With time on my hands, my guitar came-out of its case more often. I asked myself ... why not make a business writing a web site about acoustic guitars? Why not share my knowledge of chords and songs with others? Why should others spend $30 per lesson, when I can show them how to learn for free? Hence, the creation of this website.
For beginner guitar players, I truly hope this website supports you in your journey of mastering the instrument. Please remember, if you learn just 3 chords (for example, chord C-D-G), you can play hundreds of
three chord guitar songs!
Or, search my chord library of 100+ chords in my
free guitar chord charts
For more advanced players seeking to upgrade their guitar, I offer many of my own
on quality instruments. ... If you're wondering, I play a
Taylor 610ce acoustic-electric
Martin D-41 Dreadnought
- two awesome guitars!
