I have Dean that I got in San Francisco. It followed me home. I write songs on that. I have an Eastman mandolin that I play almost daily, that keeps me sane.
One of those Breedlove guitars. Kooky looking, but they play.
I've been writing songs for a long time, as a hobby. I've played mandolin and guitar since college, and I pick pretty well on the mandolin. I chord along on the guitar, mostly. So it's intermediate on both.
Lightnin' Hopkins, Jerry Jeff Walker, Robert Earl Keen, Steve Earl, and Kate Rusby. Bobby Pulido, Intocable, Los Palominos, Flaco Jimenez, Lyle Lovett, and Dwight Yoakum.

Tim Harrigan - I write my own songs and sing with guitar. I play mandolin - mostly irish reels and jigs - but don't perform that much.
