"Hi Reg, I mostly play the conventional way but I will be gradually moving into using a bottleneck slide that I have. I play lap steel guitar, so the change to slide should not be much of a problem. I am just having too much fun playing those blues…"

Hello from new member

Hi to everyone!I just joined a few days ago and I wanted all of you to get some information about my background. I am living in Snellville, Georgia ( near Atlanta) and have been here in my home for the past 24 years. I grew up in Birmingham ,Alabama and  graduated from Ramsay High School in 1965. I attended UAB for several years as a working commuter student. I had a long working career as a branch manager, regional manager and sales manager. I am now retired and spend most of my time working in my yard or around the house, walking my dog and playing one of my several guitars. My wife Sylvia have been married for 36 years. Our two sons are grown now and live here in the Atlanta area with their own family. I started playing guitar in 1956 when Elvis was popular. I grew up in the 60's during the "Rock  & Roll" age. I was converted to country music in 1968 when I listened to a Johnny Cash album, "Folsom Prison Blues". I now play lap steel guitar, standard guitar  and now, CBG. I…See More
