What level guitarist are you? (Beginner, Intermediate, Advanced, Expert)

I consider myself to be an intermediate level player.

Where did you find out about the Baltimore Guitarist Group? If from a member, please put their name.

From a group member, Paul Lanni.

What is your favorite guitar that you own?

I have a Takamine 363SC acoustic electric autographed by my idol, Janis Ian. I have a Penco A180 acoustic guitar (my first) that will always have a special place in my heart. I recently acquired a Variax Line 6 with a pedalboard that can replicate the sound of 25 different guitars. It is great for practicing because the thin solid body saves the wear and tear on my shoulder that I get from playing large acoustic guitars.

What guitar do you wish you owned?

I have not really thought about it that much. I like to joke about owning a Kevin Ryan Janis Ian model acoustic guitar - the 'basic' model will set you back around $14K. Unless I hit the lottery, that ain't gonna happen.

Who is your biggest guitar influence and why?

Singer songwriter Janis Ian. She is an amazing guitarist and songwriter, and incredibly accomodating to her fans (she autographed my guitar!)

Introduction

I favor female singer songwriters, e.g. Janis Ian, Carole King, Laura Nyro. I play harmonica a little, and am getting seriously into songwriting.

What Randy is saying about this Meetup Group

My first meetup was a lot of fun, and I am looking forward to many more!
