Hometown: Torrance, CA

I write, play and sing--you'd think after all the years with a guitar in my hands, I'd be rich and famous... but mostly I am happy when I don't forget the words. Been a South Bay resident for over 30 years.
I play the guitar. I am a middling sort of player. Good enough to know how to bar and make a few funny finger positions on the fret. I can speak of sharps and flats and rests and eighth notes. But I can't actually translate them in real time.
I play a couple of times a week. I'd peg myself as a hobbyist who wouldn't mind a platinum record...but will have to live with the callouses, instead.
Any kind of music except polka, jazz, or Dixie. Unless inebriated then...hey...watch out. I can belt out a mean polka.
If only time was twice as long, I do many extra things. But time is fleeting...so probably not.
Bo (or is it Ob?), thanks for the encouragement! I have been practicing daily, very enthusiastic about learning guitar. Looking forward to seeing you Sunday!
