If you get it…

28, Jul 2012

…gigs will come. Get the guitar that is. I’ve been enjoying the heck out of my new Epiphone…we have bonded faster than most any other instrument I have owned. This is a good thing because Susan asked if I would bring it to Amarillo next week and play a set with her band as a […]

He is an amazing songwriter and guitarist…I’ve been watching his guitar skills for years now since he plays with Susan sometimes […]
