More About WireNWood

I started guitar at my Father's knee as a child. I suppose I was a professional guitarist then, as I was getting paid in the only currency that matters to a 5YO - Daddy's praise.
Twenty years after high school I went to college for "Classical" guitar. I still pump nylon daily but I also dig fingerstyle jazz solos, most anything from the 70s, Blues Rock, and pizza with everything.
For most of the 90s I was a guitarist for the U.S.Army Band. My year in Seoul with the Army was one of the best years of my life.
I'm a certifiable guitar geek. I build, modify, and repair guitars. I love guitar history & industry lore.
I try to perform about twice a month here on StreetJelly. I also perform live in 3 local bands and occasionally in Second Life under this same name.
Please say "Hi" ... even if you think I suck. :)

Fun Stuff about the Artist

Life on the Street

One time I sat very still with my guitar as a brawl between 2 groups of bikers raged on all around me. The guitar & I both got through without a scratch. It was almost like a scene from F-Troop. :)

Embarrassing Moment

My most embarrassing moment was ... well ... childhood through 50 years of age. Maybe 55.

My Instrument

My first guitar was a Tiesco Spectrum 3 from K-Mart. :) I still remember my father choosing it for me, but I didn't know it by model name at the time. Dad played every electric guitar they had on display in 2 K-Marts and he even made the employee go in the store room and get second examples of a few models. I didn't expect him to choose the gorgeous blue top-of-the-line model. That guitar was my pride & joy.
Since then I've become a guitar freak. I have a room full of Strats and Teles of all sorts, but you'll probably see me on StreetJelly playing one of the following:
Taylor 110e
D'Angelico Brooklyn
Gibson J200
Martin AX1
Xaviere dreadnaught (bubinga/cedar)
Xaviere dreadnaught (zebrawood/spruce)
Those 2 put much more expensive guitars to shame
Michael Kelly Forte Port
or my 1977 Epiphone FT150 Bard, a gift from my Dad and maybe my most cherished possession.
