    I'm the old school guy here I suppose. I haven't had time to read all the post,just joined the forum this morning.
    Anyhow I'll try and make this short. I was introduced to playing an instrument by my mother when I was around 10 or 11,it was a uke and around 12 she surprised me with a Stella Guitar which I learn to play somewhat easily knowing what I had learned on the uke. That was 1952, told you I was old.
    Anyway I graduated from our high school teen band to a musical career that lasted some thirty plus years. Retiring from Nashville,Tn around 2009. I will spare you the corporate years before moving to Nashville in 1982.
    My influences if you haven't already guess were WLAC Radio,John R and The Horseman Bill Allen and Sun Records, Memphis.
    By the way I still have my Stella.

    Thanks for the welcome. I played in Austin at the Mickey Newbury Gathering back years ago. What a beautiful place. I even rented a car and went to New Braunfels and Grune, that was a trip to remember.
