I''m 37 years old and got my first guitar at the age of 9. I wanted a guitar because my dad''s brothers played in a band and sometimes would sit out on the front porch of my grandmothers house with a 6 string and a bass and play Beatles tunes and classic rock songs. I thought it was awesome. So I asked my parents for a guitar for Christmas. I don''t know the name brand of the guitar but I''m sure it was the cheapest one in the Sears catologue at the time. My progress with learning to play the guitar has been very slow. As a teenager I had few friends who played guitar and those who did have instruments didn''t know how to play anything. Over time I managed to learn some riffs and started getting interested in rock music while at the same time my mom was trying to get me into the music scene at our church. Even though I was a 6 string guitar player my first experience in playing in front of an audience was at church but I played the bass guitar. I didn''t know much about playing bass but I managed to put the same basic bass patterns over almost any song that the church would play during it''s worship services. I did take some free lessons from this guy once for maybe two or three sessions however this person only played strumming type songs and did no soloing or lead work of any type. I thought to myself that I was already beyond the level of play that this guy was teaching so I didn''t stick with his lessons. By the way, when on the first day of guitar lessons, your guitar instructor is tuning up your instrument for you and breaks the little E.... That''s a signal... (enough said) Anyway, all of the way through my teenage years I spent hours and hours every day just trying to pick out my favorite 80''s rock songs and learn them by ear. I didn''t understand anything about scales and how to apply them or play them over chord progressions while staying in key. So I just worked out the main riff''s and would play them for my friends when they would come over. I remember my mom banging on my door many times telling me to turn it down. I always played my little 15 watt amp as loud as it would go to try and get a distorted sound from it. I had no clue about effect''s pedals at the time nor could I afford them if I did. At some point I started hanging out at the local music store and got to know the owner. I later found out that he new my parents which was a plus because he then would allow me to go in and play instruments and test out effects pedals even though he knew there was no chance at all that I was ever going to buy anything. Jose was a pretty good guitar player and the fact the he would come over to me from time to time and make comments to me about my playing really gave me the inspiration to try even harder to learn. He would say things like " That sounds like a BlackFoot riff" or " Show this guy that thing you just did". I really was just making a lot of noise then...

Guitar has been only a hobby of mine for all of these years however during 2005-2006 I played with a band call Disclaimer while in Portugal. I learned a lot from that experience and it really spun me. Now I focus all of my attention on recording.

I am an amateur and have a lot to learn about recording, mixing, and mastering. The album "Dreaming of a New Cloud" is a stepping stone for things to come. I look forward to improving my guitar playing while at the same time learning recording and mastering techniques that will ensure my next project will have a professionally mastered sound.
