Welcome to my music page ......
When I was very young, I can remember watching the country music shows on TV listening on
radio, because of my Dad. I can remember loving the sound of the steel guitar..at that time ,still
non pedal. I have always loved country music and the sound of the steel guitar. In 1984 at age 32 ,
I bought a Shobud Maverick. The following is my scrap-book of the fun times that I had playing
the steel guitar...never got all that good... but steel guitar has been a big part of my life.
MMy 1976 Emmons
My 2004 Zum
Josh is one of the finest young
talents I have had the privilege
to play music with. I have
known him since he was a
teenager just starting to play
guitar. I feel very lucky to have
gotten to play steel for him. He
has several CD's that show his
talent. Keepin it Country!

Sorry for the poor quality, this
was recorded along with rhythm
track on a cassette recorder in
1996 and the tape has deteriorated
(I can't beleive this
went so wrong)
Really liked the Emmons (bought it new
through Pat Heller) just thought I wanted
a Zum.So I bought a used red Zum SD10
and let Scotty sell the Emmons.I still wish
I had kept it. Years latter I sold the red
Zum because I bought a new Zum in 2004
Now my favorite is a 1974 Emmons P/P.
I also have a 1976 P/P, both SD10's
Dale and Melody gave me a chance
to play in a real live band situation.
Before then it was jam sessions ,etc.
This was the early 90's and I am
happy to be back playing with them
and Josh. I thank them for taking
me under their wing ....so to speak.
I thank them for giving me the
chance and the oportunity to play.
