Yes, I do love guitars, guitarists, and guitar music as much as I seem to. I'm equally fond of lots of other music as well, but because I can play the guitar a little bit, and was raised around lots and lots of the things, I feel qualified to do what I do here, and elsewhere. I hang out at guitar stores and pawn shops. Sometimes folks at Guitar Center think I work there, or maybe they just think I'm lonely and need attention. Same difference.

I dislike planned obsolescence. I'm into products that last, and most especially, musical instruments.

I'm always thinking about buying another guitar. I try to produce writing about guitars I'd like to personally own, and of course, sometimes I have owned that guitar. I've played thousands of the things.

When I was a child I spent most Saturday's with one of my grandfathers. Every single time I'd see him it seemed he had new guitars, fiddles, mandolins, banjos, bass guitars, and so forth and so on. He seemingly knew everything there was to know about every instrument. He could rattle off stories about the manufacturerers, their histories, the parts, the woods, everything.

I've no clue how my grandfather knew so much many years before there was an internet, but he did have magazine subscriptions for the subjects. I'm trying to put together something like an encyclopedia here online, but it will never ever be complete, nor could it be.

I'm trying to provide the single most informative page on the web for the exact topics I write about. I've one very stiff bit of competition around here. He's well worth reading too.

The natural world has always been of terrific interest to me, and exactly what sort of person doesn't find the flora and fauna interesting?

I love baseball probably more than you do, and I spend a huge amount of time reading about it and watching it, and I always have. Baseball is the finest of sports, the most skilled of team sports, and shows the most truest character of the United States of America. So I write about Major League Baseball some.

I simply write about whatever it is I'm interested in learning about at that time. I'm typically amazed at what proves to be successful, and what does not. I do not do keyword research. I'm too much of a dreamer and not enough of a realist. I only ever really hope that whatever page it is you land on is useful or at least entertaining.

If you really wish to speak with me one on one, then the thing to do is to message me from the option to do so at the top of every article.
