I have been playing guitar since the Beatles became popular. I started out playing in small bands around the neighborhood, then eventually started doing solo work at restaurants and cafes. I’ve played a lot at the Bluebird Cafe in Nashville Tennessee when I performed there for a year. I have a mad passion for recording in my studio, and recorded a lot of instrumentals and solo-guitar recordings with a Santa Cruz Om/Pw acoustical guitar and now with a beautiful Martin acoustic guitar. I particularly enjoy composing my own finger-style guitar solos as well popular versions of current and past pop-hit songs. I have performed at colleges and Universities. I also enjoy orchestrating many of my original instrumentals and making back-up arrangements for them! I love to sing baritone with original songs as well as popular folkstyle songs, or songs that can be converted into folk - fingerpicking styles. I play advanced classical guitar and have performed in front of thousands of people.
Martin Luther (1483–1546) was a German professor of theology, composer, priest, former monk and a seminal figure in the Protestant Reformation. Luther came to reject several teachings and practices of the Late Medieval Catholic Church. He strongly disputed the claim that freedom from God's punishment for sin could be purchased with money. He proposed an academic discussion of the power and usefulness of indulgences in his Ninety-Five Theses of 1517. His refusal to retract all of his writings at the demand of Pope Leo X in 1520 and the Holy Roman Emperor Charles V at the Diet of Worms in 1521 resulted in his excommunication by the Pope and condemnation as an outlaw by the Emperor.
