Greetings and thanks for stopping by...
One of my passions is playing and entertaining those in Senior's Homes.. These folks are the backbone of our society and I believe that they should be pampered, entertained and treated with respect.. I get out and entertain as often as I can. Love seeing the smiles and the occasional tear..
I retired after serving in the Canadian Navy and Coast Guard. I enjoy singing and playing classic old time country music and bluegrass. I was in 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.. 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....
Most of my tunes I do up a bit different from what the original artist had recorded.. I enjoy doing Instrumentals and Duets 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, or drop me an email.. I truly appreciate it...
Please don't overload my song pages with heavy graphics, if so, I will delete them.. Thank You..
I live on Vancouver Island and here is a video that was made about the area.. It was very well done and shows the remoteness and beauty of our part of the world...
Take Care and Be Safe Everyone..
Hugzzzz and have a wonderful day..
Here are some photos of me entertaining residents in Senior Homes..
