Originally from southern Ontario, spent 6 1/2 yrs living in Watsonville, CA, moving to BC in Oct '08. Will return to Ont when I eventually retire. I enjoy teaching myself fingerstyle and play a combination of Chet & Merle's style, borrowing a bit from both. GAS in '14 was phenomenal finding a mint condition '98 Gibson Country Gent, '72 Super Chet, '41 blond Gretsch Synchromatic, D100 '05 Ultrasound acoustic amp, an almost never used '71 Fender Silverface Vibrolux Reverb, Gretsch Executive. In early '15 I found a mint '97 Ovation Country Artist to join my '95 Folklore (they're gorgeous twins) and a '98 6120 Blueburst. Fall of '15 I picked up a basket case '55 Gretsch Fleetwood archtop. Super rare model that I'm having restored, including a new neck. Lots of toys to enjoy! In the wet fall weather I enjoy hunting (to eat!) 'shrooms.
