Musically, I started playing guitar at the age of 10, I grew up playing and learning from 2 of my Uncles, Uncle Gene and Uncle Jim, me and 2 of my cousins named Chuck and Martin started playing guitars early and whenever we would see each other we would jam, they taught me so much and really turned me onto James Taylor, Jim Croce, John Denver, America, and later some country and bluegrass, I also have learned to play the dobro or resonator guitar, Jerry Douglas is my name sake here on singsnap, He is the best dobro player in the world, LOL, music has really been in my blood and I've had some wonderful and exciting times playing in bands in churches, fair's even at bluegrass festivals, also jam sessions, I was in a Bluegrass/Gospel Band called Blue River with my Uncle Gene, cousins Chuck, Martin, and myself and one non relative Ray R. on guitar, we recorded 3 c.d.'s of bluegrass/gospel music and we had 4 part harmony singing, my favorite band I ever played with. Now I play bass guitar at church in the Praise Band, so thankful I can still do that and I love the church and the people in the Praise Band. I have also been blessed to write songs and I've sang some at church, and the Praise Band sang and played one recently.
`
Now I've been here on singsnap since May 2011, I've already mounted up over 4,000 recordings, the reason for that many is I have a lot of time on my hands cause I'm disabled. I have a calling to tell people that I get to know on here about what the Lord has done for me all by HIS grace and power to get me clean and sober.
