I play acoustic/electric guitar, with 15 years' experience in each. I am self taught. I have been playing music and writing music for over 10 years.
I gravitate more towards the acoustic guitar, with the reason being I saw a very young and gifted John Mayer play at my local coffee shop more than a decade ago. I not only wanted to sound like him but also, I wanted to be as diverse on the acoustic guitar as possible.
I am a huge fan of finger picking, 'slapping' the strings, and of course the standard 'picked' downward strokes.
