Started playing 5 string in 1979- was already playing guitar (mostly strumming) since 1976- Worked on learning guitar and banjo for 6 or 7 years then only went back to them from time to time for short periods over the past 20 or 30 years. In 2001, I took up serious study on fingerstyle guitar and worked at it daily since then. I retired from work in Sept. 2012 and started back at 5 string- both Scruggs and Melodic style. Am working hard at learning a few tunes and hoping it will lead to meeting some new people and attending some festivals during summers now that I am retired. Also do woodworking (furniture) and plan to look into building a banjo and guitar some day. I have a 1979 Fender Leo that I bought new and am very happy with it. I have several guitars but my favourite is a 1978 Yamaha FG335 that I also bought new. Also enjoy old cars, bicycles and restoring antiques and worn out things. I have a 400 square foot workshop for woodworking and to tear old cars apart. We live on an 88 acre farm near Chesley Ontario where we pasture cattle in summer and plan to enjoy retirement from here on. We designed and built the house ourselves in 1997.
