Ya got me. Big Monty Python fan. Good job I'm not a superhero 'cos my kryptonite would be for the bad guys to put on Holy Grail's Brave Sir Robin scenes or Life of Brian's Biggus Dickus scene and I'd be helpless with laughter.

I wouldn't mind playing some of Eric Idles's songs eventually.
LoL

What inspired you to start playing guitar? Well I’ll try to keep this short, when I was 13 I snuck into my sisters record collection. I came across the wild album cover and gave it a listen, though the Headphones came this amazing riff and Mr Page had me hooked! The ocean was the song that made want to play and wa s the very first song I learned on the guitar as a matter of fact. So why so long ? Well frankly we were poor it was just my dad raising us, I worked 3 jobs to get though college where I met my lovely wife of 27 years. Then the girls came and along with them came ballet, tap jazz then piano lessons, viola lessons, cello lessons, and one daughter was in the ringling jr orchestra the other jazz band as well as jazz piano and the youngest was cello and orchestra. Soooo they took priority!  and then my I had a wake up call father was diagnosed with lung cancer we talked endlessly the last  few months of his life about bucket lists and things we should have done and didn’t and the importance of not leaving things undone. He passed July 2015. Around December thinking about my own life it just hit me my whole life I wanted to play the guitar I always talked about, thought it would be so cool to play my favorite songs. So I talked to my wife who said “mmm well ok I guess” and a quick phone call to Sweetwater and around January of 2016 I started this wonderful journey! If you read all that your awesome👍😆

Why do you play guitar? The pure love of the instrument! I just love the sound, the tone, the emotions you can create

What are your goals for the future? Well I would love to be good enough to play in a band. I don’t. Care about success or any of that I just want to play the music I love!

Nickname: Jim
Real (full) name: James
Age and birthday: 53
Habitat: Los Angeles, California, USA


Which guitar(s) do you own?

Breedlove Discovery Dreadnaught
Fender Parlor CP-60S

3 months, since May 2018

A big variety: Folk, classic rock, some country, some bluegrass, jazz, blues, R&B...

Which genre do you play on your guitar often?
Horrible noise so far.  Aiming for Tommy Emmanuel inspired fingerstyle.

Who are your favorite bands?
My kids' marching band and son's jazz band  I really like the unplugged work by some of the rock legends- Knopfler, Clapton, etc. 

What inspired you to start playing guitar?
My daughter plays tuba and son plays trombone in school bands.  I also go to a music festival 2x per year with lots of musicians.  All this exposure to music an musicians I feel like an illiterate- I want to understand more of how music is made.

Do you play in a band or have you been playing in a band?
No.  I would be banned from any band!  I don't see myself playing in a band and I don't sing, which is a large part of the reason that my goal is to develop travis-style skills.  It seems conducive to solo play.

Why do you play guitar?
To experience on the inside what I've been an onlooker.

What are your goals for the future?
Play well enough that people come into the room when I'm playing instead of them running away with fingers in ears
