Product Description

I am so happy to have this CD. In fact you could say I have been waiting for it for fifty years!!!

In 1966 while a student at SUNY Fredonia, I got to talking to a fellow classmate who sat next to me in freshman Western Civ. class. It didn't take long to discover that we both had an interest in playing guitar, so I invited him to my dorm between classes to kill time and to play my $17 Sears-made Silvertone guitar. I was just a beginner. I had been playing for a little over one year and could play a number of easy folk songs, and that's about all. The thing is I really wanted to learn to play better. That was my lucky day.

I soon found out that my new friend, Tom Gestwicki, was an extremely gifted musician,
a respected guitar teacher, and the lead guitarist of a local rock band. This guy was great! I had never heard anyone play like that - not even on TV; and he could play pretty much everything, including jazz and classical music. He was truly gifted. I'll never forget how his spider-like fingers crawled up and down the fingerboard. I have been playing guitar for more than a half a century now and I still can't do what he could do at eighteen. Not even close!
 
Although I have never taken formal guitar lessons, Tom was the one who really got me started. He showed me how the fingerboard is organized and how to play barre chords and a few other basic things. Thanks again, Tom.
 
​I don't think Tom would remember this conversation, but I once mentioned that in my opinion it would be great if our school's music department offered guitar instruction for credit, and Tom could be the instructor. He was too young, of course, but maybe he would qualify in a few years. The guitar, he lamented, was not a symphony instrument and would never be taken seriously by our classically-trained faculty... So forget that! Well I happen to know that Tom has been an adjunct guitar professor at our alma mater for quite a few years now. I am so glad to hear it.
 
Tom has been a very active musician all his life, so I have been waiting for him (and his buddies) to someday release a CD so I could once again have the thrill of hearing him play. Well it's here. Finally!
