  I fell in love with the guitar when I was ten and I continue to have a great passion for the music created on guitars.  When I was 16, my own guitar teacher told me that i should teach in my community of Mendota IL.  I did, and I had about 12 students, not bad for a teenage kid. When I moved to Las Vegas I played in bands, went to college for music and taught guitar at a music school/store.  After 13 yrs in the desert I moved back to the heartland to be involved with another passion (trains and model ralroad construction) at the Union Depot Railroad Museum in Mendota. 
 After years of teaching guitar I had realized more than ever the void in guitar instruction methods. I wanted to write a guitar teaching course in which i could find everything I basically needed under one cover.  GUITAR JOURNEY is a result of that! 
I also have been interested in history and railroading and have made a couple documentaries and Video DVDs about Railroads and Coal Mining.  See my Cherry Coal MIne Disaster website too. I am currently building upon a website on local history called Ray's LaSalle County Online Museum.
    Photography has become another passion of mine and I like to travel to many places to photograph landscapes, people, places and things.

I also built many Model Trains. Check them out here!
