Honored to be invited back to West Shore Community College (Ludington, MI) as a guest speaker for Ted Malt’s music appreciation and guitar class tomorrow. Main talking points will be; musical inspiration, working with others, prepping for a gig, and how “sounding good is 50% visual”. The last one is my favorite
