What's your story? How did you make the jump from playing for fun to playing for fun AND money? Did your neighbor own a bar and ask you to play? Were you "discovered" by a producer who drove by while you were jammin' in the garage? As for me, my singer/lead guitarist's ( Michael Hedges ) father was a local professor and we got an inside track to play for fraternity and sorority parties and dances. I left before Mike became a recording artist, but for a while there in '68/'69 or so getting $25 for a party gig was alright.
