What is your favorite or the main guitar (instrument) that you own?

I have a Takamine 363SC electric acoustic, autographed by my idol, Janis Ian. I also have a 1976 acoustic Penco A180 (my first guitar) that I have had for more than 30 years. It is an example of the golden age of Japanese knock-offs, great guitar, had a pickup installed. I have a Variax Line 6 with pedaloard that can replicate the sound of 25 different guitars, has a great acoustic 6 and 12 string, and jazz guitar settings. Also does resonator and banjo.

What is your "dream" guitar/instrument?

A Santa Cruz Janis Ian model guitar. Dream on.

Do you consider yourself: beginner, intermediate, advanced or expert?

I consider myself an intermediate level player.

Who are your musical influences?

#1 is Janis Ian, best female singer songwriter bar none. Carole King, Laura Nyro, are other favorites, and I recently discovered Cosy Sheridan who is one hell of a singer songwriter. Took classes with both Janis and Cosy at the Swannanoa Gathering in North Carolina in August 2013.

How did you find the AGMGroup? If from a member, who?

I am a BGG Member, and read about the new group on Facebook, so here I am.

Introduction

Howdy! I play primarily folk and soft rock. I have recently become more seriously involved in writing and performing original material.
