What was the cause of your passion for the guitar?
What was the cause for your passion for the guitar, what made you HAVE to get one and play it?
my dad tried to teach me guitar when I was around four or five but I wanted no part of flamenco lessons, I wanted to play like the Beatles so I stopped shortly after.
But then when I was around nineteen I heard Eruption and the rest of the first Van Halen debut and that was all she took!
What was your WOW moment when you had to play?
It happened one night in church. Really.
Some time in the mid-80s I was at a church's night service and the guitarist played two funk chords for every song. The SAME two chords. No one else seemed able to tell. I was about to complain to someone that he couldn't play when I heard a voice say, "He's playing for me." Suddenly, everything he played sounded fantastic, even though he hadn't changed anything. Later that evening I knew I'd eventually be playing in church and that's what I do.
