I've been playing guitar since I was 14 and I am in my late forties, so somewhere along the way I got pretty good. Also play mandolin, sometimes fiddle and other instruments. Used to be a seriously traditional folkie but not so much any more. Been playing music as my reason-for-living for so long that I lost my fire for it in the past few years. Still enjoy playing, but I don't sit around by myself for hours learning new tunes and songs, have to force myself to do that. More of a habit now. I play in two bands currently, so that keeps motivating me.

I am inquisitive, pragmatic, and happily leftist
