I just found TrueFire.com yesterday. I couldn't help but be impressed by the way the site looks, and then I found it's contents. WOW!!

I've been playing guitar for about 28 years. My guitar teacher described me as "heavy intermediate"... for what that's worth...

My influences are just about everyone!

Eddie Van Halen
Bruce Bouillet
Stevie Ray Vaughan
Joe Pass
Mike Stern
Tony Rice
Brian Setzer
Jim Heath (Reverend Horton Heat)

...and many many more

I'm heavy into bluegrass and jazz right now. For some reason my mind is BLANK when it comes to ideas and improvising in jazz. I just went through Frank Vignola's 50 Jazz Licks. I felt it was like a springboard for me to get started with improv and creating my own phrases. So many great licks and ideas.

It's great to be here. Looking forward to meeting some super cool guitar players and learning as much as I can.

Hope everyone has a great day!
