What instrument do you play? How experienced are you?

Guitar is my instrument for the past 50 years (since 1962). (My scholarship was on French horn but that's another story). By practicing every day it gets more interesting. I average one jam per week and perform once in awhile.

Are you a serious professional or aspiring professional, hobbyist, or just starting to learn how to play?

I am a pro but not often serious as I used to be as I now choose were I play or just play at home.

What is your favorite type of music? What is your favorite band?

There is no favorite type of music for me as I enjoy music in general and go to jazz venues that include guitar and I enjoy a symphony as well. I go to Irish/Celtic, Bluegrass, Gypsy Jazz and Folk/Songwriter jams and open mics.

We also offer lessons with Experienced teachers. Would you be interested to take a group lesson?

I am an active acoustic guitarist and enjoy jamming with all types and levels of musicians. I have been supporting different Meetups for a year now. Always looking forward to meeting other musicians or music lovers.
