David Gordon

“Your playing feeds my soul in a deep way.  I am in awe of your talent and your heart, your skill and sensitivity., your choice of melody over flash.  It is a beautiful thing to be middle-aged and still be able to have a guitar hero.  You are my guitar hero.  Kudos....and cheers from Los Angeles.”
