hat got you into music, and if you had not gotten into music what would you be doing today? My father is very musical. He grew up in Scotland and learned to play the bagpipes. He studied Opera when he got to Canada. Fortunately for my fans, the pipes were not my instrument of choice! We also had a piano in the house from the time I was quite young, and I started noodling around quite a bit on that instrument. It was when I was about eight years old and my older sister brought a reject guitar home from school (when her school was given a lot of money to upgrade the instruments in their orchestra) that my older brother and I took to the guitar with gusto! He was six years older than me, so he learned a lot from friends at school and compared notes with them, and then he would come home and show me what he learned from his friends. I found learning a lot about music and getting better and better at playing the guitar to be very exciting as I grew, and it kept me out of a lot of trouble!
