Alex from an older time...

Let’s begin in 1964.  I was sitting on the floor at a neighbor’s house who had a TV and the Beatles had just performed on Ed Sullivan.  And then let’s consider 1969 and I had just learned “Down on the Corner” by Creedence Clearwater Revival.  Then,  when Woodstock came along,  I was totally hooked. I didn’t find my instrument until 1971 when I was fortunate enough to get classical guitar lessons.  And then in 1976 lessons continued with Larry Snitzler who had studied with Segovia.

Ok, so I have been in many bands.  Big bands, jazz bands, rock bands, folk bands, and vocal bands.  And all the while I have listened to and learned many songs and met and played with many musicians.  It’s hard to remember all their names over the last forty-seven years of my being a musician.

Alex is Alex! In October of 2016 I was asked if I wanted to join in on a Moody Blues tribute.  And honestly I had to stop and think about who they were.  And then the memories started flooding back in.  The more I listened to the albums and the songs, the more I remembered how great the musicianship and songwriting really was, and still is today.
Just for reference, my instruments include a Taylor 12 string acoustic guitar, a Taylor 6 string acoustic guitar(in open C tuning), a Gibson ES 339 electric guitar, a 1965 Fender Princeton Reverb amplifier, and several analog guitar effects.  Which in terms of the Moody Blues puts me in the position of Justin Hayward. Alex in the element
