I started learning guitar when I was 11 years old. I guess guitar was a natural choice since I was a big fan of The Beatles (I still am). I played Beatles songs for awhile and learned to play chords. After a few years I discovered Deep Purple and Ritchie Blackmore and that was when I started to learn solo guitar techniques. I began to rehearse systematically and gained good basic technique along the years. Today I am not really interested in rehearsing techniques anymore (although I should, at least sometimes). Instead I try to make good songs and that is I think the most difficult part of it.
I've been recording as long as I've been playing. I bought my 4-track recorder in 1989 and used it until I bought digital 8-track in 1997. In 2003 I changed to software based multitracking on PC. Since I don't always play in a band I like to do my own band thing by recording all the instruments myself.
