A few words about me: Biography

Music for the Soul

It’s been over 50 years since I first picked up the guitar, and since then I’ve learned a lot of cool new tricks, but I’ve also gained a humble respect for tradition. Sometimes, the old ways outclass those of our digital age, and although there may be an app for it, I often prefer to jot down chord shapes and music on printed forms and score paper. This section collects all of the forms I use regularly — I designed them all — in PDF files that you are free to download, use, and share: Music

Programming for the Mind
