Jim started playing Guitar at the age of 10 after getting the long-sought after Electric-
Guitar and Amp for his 10th birthday, and being heavilly inspired by Cousin Sue Lopez
(who was & is a Monster!) Jim never stopped playing, all this time. Playing in a cover &
original rock-band in Highschool, and Instrumental-Fusion band in the 80's, Jim has a
lot of stage experience. Then working for 28 years at a recording studio as an engineer,
producer, writer, and studio-musician has given Jim lots of opportunity to refine his
craft and become musically educated in ways others may have missed out on.
