Since I picked up the acoustic guitar at a young age, I've always been an acoustic player and performer. There's always been something profound about one man and one guitar. I've always thought that to have that type of capability, to be able to hold it down and get your song and performance across, solo acoustic, is the sign of a true musician. When you're up there all by yourself, you have nothing to hide behind.
One day in 1993, I was walking through the streets of Boston. There was a guitar shop around the corner from Berklee called Cambridge Music. I was hanging with my homies from Philly, and we were walking the streets, smoking joints and messing around. I had no idea my musical life was about to change. We walked by Cambridge Music and I stopped dead in my tracks. There in the window was MY guitar. How much is that doggie in the window!?!
