1971 - current: I have played with over 20 different bands in the 48 years I have been playing professionally. Again, too many to list. But can provide if necessary.
Here is an outline of my musical skills:
1) Began playing at age 12. Initially self-taught.
2) Studied with a jazz guitarist for 3 years in my early twenties.
3) Learned basic music notational and harmony theory from several texts.
4) I have written horn section parts for various bands I played in.
5) I can teach a beginner to read music, if desired by the student/parents.
