Influences

I have been a musician since from about 11 years old when I was given my first guitar by a treasured Aunt and Uncle. Had three lessons, got bored with progress and figured that I could do it quicker myself ~ which I did. Long nights into early mornings ensued as I traded licks with the likes of Andy Powell and Ted Turner (Wishbone Ash); Walter Becker (Steely Dan); Jan Ackerman (Focus) and many other influencing guitarists of the time.
