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.
I went to college for "Classical" guitar. I still pump nylon daily but I also dig fingerstyle jazz solos, acoustic singer/songwriter stuff from the 70s, Blues Rock, Prog Rock, and pizza with everything.
For most of the 90s I played all over the world for the U.S.Army Band including a year in Seoul, one of the best years of my life.
I build, modify, and repair guitars. I love guitar history & industry lore - I'm a certifiable guitar geek. I perform live as often as I can in 2 local bands and about once a week here on StreetJelly.
I tried performing in Second Life for a brief time, but let that go. StreetJelly is much more fun and fewer hassles.. My SJ profile photo is the way I appeared in Second Life.
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
D'Angelico Bowery
Gibson J200
Martin AX1
2013 Fender CD140,
Seagull Explorer walnut
Xaviere dreadnaught (bubinga/cedar - puts much more expensive guitars to shame)
or my 1977 Epiphone FT150 Bard, a gift from my Dad and maybe my most cherished possession.
