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

I will always consider myself a beginner. I'm not sure what the others mean exactly.

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

Bill L. and the Acoustic Musicians Group/Greater Towson Living Room Players.

What is your favorite guitar that you own?

I have two: a 1986 Guild D25 that I got for Christmas as a teenager and a 1978 Martin D-18 that I inherited from a dear friend who I still think about every day.

What guitar do you wish you owned?

Martin OM 42

Who is your biggest guitar influence and why?

I started learning from Neil Young and CSN records. One day I somehow stumbled into a mediocre Travis picking style after several failed attempts. So in a few words Neil Young and Stephen Stills (without all the funky alt-tunings!) now with some John Gorka thrown in for good measure.

Introduction

I really enjoy well-crafted lyrical music that emanates from instruments formed of wood and steel. I tinker with acoustic guitar mostly in my cellar for my two dogs and cat, all of whom remain unappreciative.
