INTRODUCTION

In studio playing guitar...

A few comments from
students & colleagues:

Brad,
...I can't stand not having a good
guitar teacher! I need new material to study
and guidance on what I should be doing.  
I never realized how good I had it when
you lived here! So just email me back when
you get a chance and if you have t
he time - I would be so happy if you could
send me some material to look at...

Brad,

...How have you been man??
Once again I can't thank you enough for all
of your help. I have been practicing my
ass off. Just as a sort of update,
I have been working on: practicing making my
own estudio style songs, implementing the
usage of my third 'A' finger...

Playing Sybil at home

Hi Brad:  I met you about a month ago at the Market Street Grill and you gave me a copy of a CD.  I have to tell you that in the past when someone gives you a CD it is mediocre at best....  but your CD is fantastic! I would  like to use some of the tracks for two of the documentaries I am now producing.  Great stuff!
