The name “Loudguitars.com” opened the flood gates for so many ideas that it kept me up nights for almost 10 years.
Guitar “the thing” is such an integral part of music, inspiration in the creation of music and the reason for my own personal success as a person. Suffice to say it kept me from a life of “no good”.
My musical life started as a drummer. With my father, a touring/recording musician and my mother, a singer/piano player, music was in my genes and the natural course for me.
Drums have always been an extremely important part of music creation for me and I am so very grateful to be able to play, but guitar is what inspired me to write and record. The energy that came from picking up a six string, plugging in and the sound that emanated from my little Tempo amp was earth-shattering.
Since those days I have been involved with every aspect of guitar; as a player, recording artist, builder, designer, researcher of different electronics, as a teacher, and as road tech for some very influential players. I have been fortunate enough to be involved with people who I consider to be the some of the best players in the world as well as the inspired new comers. Everyone at some point has looked at a guitar and said “I wish could do that” well you can, and should!!!!
This site was created to inspire, entice, seduce, invite, spawn a new generation of players, help up-and-comers to advance and expose seasoned players to other avenues of inspiration, open the world of possibilities in music creation, inform and educate. I am so very proud of the talent of our contributors and am happy to be able to say every month we will bring you a plethora of new and cool content and fresh injections of inspiration.
I will offer up a monthly editorial with my selections of player of the month, cool gear, columns, reviews and content. Join us for what will be the guitar resource.
“we are guitar”
