Maxwell - 
My formative musical experience is from self taught guitar playing. I was dissatisfied watching bands so I made one. I wanted to make something different. My family is musical and my father used to play in Penknife Glides during the 80s. He was what sweet talked the idea of putting a band together. My older brother played guitar and I wanted to play too and never put the guitar down since.
