I did a good bit of my growing up in Baltimore. Though my parents moved out to WV eventually. I started playing guitar at 10. It was this old classical that was strung with steel strings. From there it's taken me on a pretty cool ride. I've had the opportunity to play in a pretty good local band, I've done recording work for others, given lessons, repaired stuff, all that. Nowdays though i just go to work and come home and play. Well, whenever I don't bang my hands up too much. I'm trying to get back into school for my bachelors degree in music and then onto performance at another school. I still play a lot and come up with stuff. But I haven't been in a band for over 5 years now. I actually don't mind that part of it. I don't have to deal with any of that. I'd like to get into teaching so I can actually do something I like. It doesn't pay much, but I live off of next to nothing now so I think I could deal with that part. I always figured I'd never be well off financially. But that doesn't matter as much as having some enjoyment out of what I do.
