I've been playing since I was 14. I just mastered my first chord. I was born to those with no musical talent, yet I continue to plug along. After I learn my second chord, I feel it will open up a new world to me for songwriting. I'm being facetious. Look, I've read a thousand of these bios, and they're all basically the same. Like most, I've paid my dues to play the blues. A life long love that started at age 6, when my older brother brought home, "Meet The Beatles" in 1964. Used a T-Square used in Drafting and an old neck-tie for a strap to pretend and play along with records. Grew up poor, but my parents bought me a guitar at age 14. Switched to bass soon after, because everyone was a guitar player, and bassists for bands were hard to find. I learned to play guitar by watching other guitar players while playing bass. So I play all the instruments and do all the vocals on my songs. Not spectacular, but enough to get my ideas across. My advice, Keep Plugging Along...
