    Loads of them. Church choir when I was a kid, elementary and high school bands and orchestras (my first instrument was the trombone), college glee club and collegium musicum, various stuff along those lines since then. I was in a big mandolin orchestra for a while; that was a blast. And my coworkers get together a holiday choir every year. I don't always participate, but it's a lot of fun. I really love singing; it hardly matters what the context is.

    Same question?

    A few.
    The Nash Hernandez Orchestra (13 piece), and a few big wedding bands.
    Loved it!
    How adept are you at home recording?

    Yeah I do OK. All my stuff is done on an ageing Boss BR-600 portable digital recorder. The post recording stuff is pretty primitive compared to the PC based systems that most everyone uses, but I compensate for that by having a good ear for arranging a song. Maybe one day when finances allow I'll upgrade to a PC based DAW.

    Same question.

    I used to be really adept at home recording on a four-track cassette recorder. I had all sorts of tricks to capture good sounds that sat well together in the mix. It was so much fun. The advances in technology have left me behind, though. I'm not much inspired by the idea of recording on a computer.
    Who is your biggest non-guitar musical influence?

    Meat Loaf as a vocalist. Although try as I might, I can't sing like he can (I can barely sing in tune).

    What's your favourite album, post-2010, and why?

    The one my wife and I are recording right now, first time using digital (last record was 2006...)
    Man that's some easy business:)

    Country or city?

    I bought a used Yamaha NTX700 nylon string acoustic electric, used for $250.
    I love these guitars!
    They sound and play great, have a tuner, cutaway, solid top and a narrower 1 3/4 inch nut width.
    What's the most money you spent on a guitar you ended up not bonding with?

    1650.00. It played like a dream, but sounded thin and uninspiring. If you could go back to when you began to play, what guitar/amp combo should you have bought besides the one you did?

    I'd have preferred a Les Paul Custom and a Marshall plexi 100 stack.
    I was a real wannabe rocker.
    What is your dream electric guitar rig (one guitar and one amp, please)?

    Les Paul & Kemper. Is that cheating? If I had the money I'd probably go and get a Mesa Mark V 25 but that wouldn't be loud enough if I ever played in a loud band again (which may or may not happen).

    What is the worst rig (guitar and amp) that you have had to play through?

    Just saw this on my local CL.https://memphis.craigslist.org/msg/d/kemper-plus-bag-and-profiles/6267546231.html

    Worst rig was my first, crappy boss ss amp and super cheap pawn shop strat copy. Ugggh.

    Your first car?

    <sidebar> I dunno about used 56 Chevys Bill, but you can't get a running and road registered HR Holden for under $15,000. I paid $500 bucks for mine in 1978. :(</sidebar>

    First one I drove regularly was a butt-ugly '76 Nova with about 8.3 horsepower and 2.228 ft-lbs of torque. So, so ugly.

    First car that I owned, I bought with money working at a deli and a golf course while I was in high school. It was a 1989 Ford escort pony. No AC. No radio originally (I added one of course). 4-speed manual that couldn't climb a modest hill in 4th gear. But I loved it.


    Tell me about your favorite summertime spot. What do you do? With whom?

    Challis Idaho, climb up on top of a mountain and just enjoy a little hot tea and endless scenery.


    What is your favorite wintertime hideaway?
