Gary's Studio

Greetings and thanks for stopping by...

I retired in 1996 after spending 13 years in the Navy and 20 years in the Coast Guard.. I was in a couple of bands years ago. I played bass, background lead and rhythm guitar... Today I thank computers, music software and the digital age., as I would hate to go back to analog mixers and sound on sound tape recorders like I used in the past. I like the country and bluegrass music from back in the old days.. My favorite guitar pickers of years ago were Dwayne Eddy, who produced a twangy lead guitar sound, and Don Rich, who played backup and lead guitar for Buck Owens..

I am self taught and play by ear.. I have to do things different today since I broke the index finger on my left hand a few years ago...
This really makes for some interesting guitar playing since the sounds just aren't there like they used to be....

I use a Yamaha Mixing Studio, a Zoom R16 Multitrack Recorder, a Vocalist Live 3 Processor, a Boss DR-670 Drum Machine and a Boss Loop Station when creating my music...

Most of my tunes are old time country, some of which, I have done up a bit different. I enjoy doing instrumentals and I would be honored if you would join me and sing or play along..

If you like my music kindly leave a comment or sign my guestbook.. I truly appreciate it...

Take Care and Be Safe Everyone..

God Bless..
