I hope this finds you all in great spirits. I am writing this on mothers day and its only suitable that I wish all the mom’s out there a very happy mothers day. I am so grateful to my mom, she was the one that started it all. I was in 5th grade and she asked if my sister and I wanted to take guitar lessons. It started then she kindled a spark and it became a fire. I remember early in my music education she bought me a Carlos Montoya album. I listened to that album at least a million times. By the time I was in the eighth grade I had figured out a few lines off of that album. I still work those lines into my playing.
So, thanks mom!
