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.
