Yeah, I’m a Southpaw…

Today a friend found out that I’m left handed. Maybe she knew it and forgot, and just didn’t think of it because she knows me in a guitar playing context, and I’m a southpaw playing a right handed guitar. One observation about this (not a criticism or complaint, just an observation): southpaws tend to notice others who are left handed, but right handed people don’t notice one way or the other.

Guitarist/Singer Available

My friends and loved ones already know this about me, and probably most following me on Facebook. But I’m going to post this here anyway, since it will help get the word out, and…well, because I can.

I am a guitarist/singer available for wedding/event/restaurant entertainment in the Greater Corpus Christi area.…
