About Me

Since enrolling in Guitar Chords 101 at Berkleemusic in 2011, I’ve been playing my guitars a lot more often. I alternate between my new cheap-but-fun Schecter C-1FR and my old 1960’s Gibson Melody Maker – the two favorites in my modest collection. I look forward to trying all of the guitar and bass courses that Berkleemusic has to offer. At the same time, I’ll be working hard to improve the technology used in the courses and in the Berklee Music Network.
