Outside Nexsen PruetBill Rocks

Seriously. He says Playing guitar is relaxing for me. I enjoy working on tunes together with my guys. I frequently play with a client, a couple of golfing buddies, and a few others. I primarily play a six-string electric guitar, but I have two six string acoustic electrics, a twelve string acoustic electric, and then three purely electrics.

He goes on to explain I learned to play guitar in my bedroom when I was 14 years old. I stole my sister's guitar and taught myself to play it. At the time, I was playing violin, so I had some musical experience, but am primarily self-taught.

And when he's not strumming away? I also play lacrosse with my team- we're called the 'Old Goats.' I played in college and I used to be good, but now I enjoy a fun bunch of guys. We run slow, and try to remember what we did when we were younger, without having a heart attack. That's music to his family's ears.
