    Really enjoyed first lesson. I'm a total beginner. Dave was patient, knowledgeable, and encouraging. Broke things down and gave helpful hacks for beginner problems. Much more satisfying and productive than online apps.

      I started playing music in grade school with the clarinet/saxophone. I played all thru high school. When I ws 17 I took up the guitar and began playing in rock n roll bands. In 1978 my band, The Tazmanian Devils, was signed to Warner Brothers Records. We recorded 2 albums on Warners. We recorded a live EP for Dublab Records in 1982 and a CD for Dubwest in 2006. In the mid 80s I operated Icehouse Recording. We recorded 2 albums for Chris Isaak produced by Erik Jacobsen. We also recorded Buddy Miles, David Crosby,and Marty Balin. I have worked at Music Biz in Santa Rosa since 2001 and became the owner in 2011.
