(August, 2006) My wife of 43 years, Tessie, and I reside near Oroville, Ca. We have three children, two sons in the Columbus, Ohio area, and a daughter who lives in San Francisco, and 10 grandkids, all in Ohio -- much to their Grandmother’s disdain. I spent seven years in the Air Force in the early sixties and then worked for several AeroSpace companies before joining Dow Chemical. I retired from Dow as a senior programmer with an electronics/hardware background in 1995 at age 51. Since then, I have totally remodeled two houses and built a new home for Tessie and myself.
Musical Background: My known memory was around music with his parents. Mother was an accomplished pianist and singer who played piano and organs for many years at the local churches. Father was a talented, self-taught musician playing keyboards and many other instruments. My earliest music training was a few months on Hammond organ in the mid-50’s. I played drums for street marching and clarinet in high school, but I never really applied myself. In the early years of marriage, I had a Lowry organ and then a Hammond 526c. My love of music was enhanced in the 80’s with the inception of midi. I do like to play music, but I also find the tinkering, learning and putting together hardware/software and music creation to be great sport. After I retired, the keyboards were in mothballs for better than 10 years. After moving into out new home in April 2005, I brought out the keyboards, along with a newer DGX-200. Discovering PSR styles and One Man Band (OMB) gave me new impetus to make music using someone else’s talented style creations.
I joined the PSRTutorial group in Sept 2005 and its been a wonderful journey ever since. I put together enough moola to purchase a PSR3000 in April 2006 and discovered two unknown abilities, poetry (triggered by Dennis), which a lot of you have suffered through, and song composing/writing.
This is the first forum I’ve joined in 15 or so years on the net. I was so impressed with the quality, the availability of songs/styles, and the overall feel of this website. This last year has been one of the most pleasurable periods of time in my life as I’ve talked with a lot of you. Your help, guidance, and advice has helped me Leapfrog way ahead. Again, we all owe a great deal to Mr. Joe Waters, who’s spent countless hours building and maintaining his Creation the "PSRTutorial."
