Music is my getaway. Don't try to find me after I slip on the headphones at my keyboards.

Music Background I have been playing piano and keyboards since I was 8 years old. I took piano lessons for 4 years, but gave up piano for guitar to be like everyone else. Big mistake...I kick myself for not continuing piano lessons. I would be a much better player and song writer. When I found I couldn't keep up with guitar players, I went back to keyboards during the time of Jazz-Fusion....Chick Corea, George Duke, Herbie Hancock, Brian Auger and my favorite, David Sancious. There were of course many many more. My basic keyboards for live music was a B-3 with a 122 Leslie, a Fender Rhodes and an Oberheim two-voice that I learned to synth solo on. We played many cover songs...Jeff Beck, Return to Forever, Lenny White, Stanley Clarke, Al Di Meola, Jean Luc Ponty, Billy Cobham and more. After many years and loud bands, I have been writing songs and creating my own music on a computer with midi controlled keyboards.
Music Skills Keyboards, Rhythm guitar, learning to play an Akai USB EWI (harder than I thought possible). Can read music, but it takes longer since I never continued piano instruction as I mentioned before.
